MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with RFA 34 middleweight Adam Stroup as he prepares for his upcoming main card bout against John Poppie this Friday night (January 15, 2015) at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
The Factory X fighter is looking to start a new winning streak after having his nine-fight run snapped this past August, and he’s expecting a hard-fought three rounds against a scrappy wrestler in Poppie:
“I think [Poppie]’s predominately wrestling-based. He doesn’t do a lot of crazy things. He doesn’t do a lot of spinning kicks or flashy stuff like that, but I think more than anything, he’s just a real tough, strong guy and he brings a really heavy pace for all three rounds.”
