Randy McCullough will be making his professional MMA debut Friday at Fury Fighting Championship 4, but he is no stranger to fighting. From bar brawls, to backyard brawls, to cage brawls, McCullough has seen them all. But now, it’s time for him to get paid for it. He will face Bobby Bradshaw in a flyweight matchup that was supposed to take place once before, and he’s hoping for it to be as “scrappy” as the rest of his fights. I had Randy stop by the Pinche Mark Headquarters, which happen to be located on the very top floor of some really nice building downtown, so I could have a one on none with the “scrappy” fighter himself.
Mark Carrillo: What happened the first time you and Bradshaw were supposed to fight?
Randy McCullough: He got AIDS or some shit, but its cool now, he’s cured. Just kidding, something happened where he needed an extra blood test or something. It was either that or he tore his labia.
MC: What do you know about Bradshaw?
RM: Not too much. I know he’s a blue belt and he’s short, but that’s about it. I couldn’t find much on the guy.
MC: We’ve all heard about all of the recent failed drug tests in the UFC. What’s your opinion on PEDs and recreational drug use in MMA?
RM: I think the PED usage is out of control, seems like everyone is on that shit now. Dirty cheaters! Now the recreational use of marijuana in my eyes is fine, and that’s all I have to say about that.
MC: What do you think about the way the UFC handled Jon Jones’ and Anderson Silva’s failed drug tests?
RM: Man, I know Jon Jones got lucky as shit, must be nice to be the “golden boy” of the UFC. I feel kind of bad for Silva though, he lost a lot from this shit, and not just money wise either. This will affect his legacy as well.
MC: What would you rather have, Anderson Silva’s broken leg or Roy Nelson’s face?
RM: Tough one, I’d say Roy’s face. Never seen anyone break Roy’s face before, but I’ve seen Silva kick himself in his left knee with his left foot.
MC: What’s the best way to catch a catfish?
RM: That all depends, but if it’s warm enough to jump in the water, then I like noodling. That’s “hand fishing” for you city folks, and it’s definitely the best way to do it.
MC: Do you think you could beat CM Punk?
RM: I’d stone cold his ass in a heartbeat. In fact, CM Punk, I’m calling you out too! Tables and ladders match, make it happen!
MC: People say you have an “any place, any time” mentality. Do you agree?
RM: 100%, I don’t give a fuck. I’m not one to start anything, but you can bet your ass I will finish it.
MC: How do you predict the fight going Friday?
RM: I’m no fortune teller, but just know I’m going out there to do what I do best. I’m hoping for a bloody fight, and to have my hand raised. In my mind, I’ve already won.
MC: I was hoping you would give me some insight to the evolution of the market economy in the southern colonies?
RM: Pass. Only because I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.
MC: Who all would you like to thank for helping you prepare for this fight?
RM: My coaches, Jermaine Anugwom and Bobby Powers, and all of my sparring partners at Windy. My sponsors: Windy Sport and Fitness, Brazos Valley Bail Bonds, FHK Masonry, Rodriguez Tires, and My Fight Shop. I also want to thank my family and anyone else who supports me. Last but not least you Mark, for doing this interview. Come out and support, I promise this will be a fun fight.
