Calum Murrie Nears EFC Gold In Only His 6th Fight

This Saturday when EFC returns to Carnival City, Scottish born fighter Calum Murrie looks to take his first title in only his sixth professional fight.

Speaking with FIGHT SPORTS this week, Murrie claims that even though he’s the underdog, he feels the pressure is entirely on the champion, Igeu Kabesa

“I don’t feel any pressure at all going in to this fight,” claimed the challenger.

“I’m the underdog and as Igeu says I’m not even a challenge for him, so surely he is the one with the pressure on him as he can’t let a guy who is only 4-1 win especially after saying I shouldn’t even be there. It’s gonna look real bad for him when I win.”

When asked about his game plan for the fight, Murrie said that while he’s known for early submission wins, he’s “going to go out there and have fun.

“I’m not looking for an early submission, unless it comes,” Murrie told FIGHT SPORTS. “I will take it but I’m just gonna look to go out there and have fun. I don’t plan fights I just take it as it comes and react to whatever situation arises.”

When he’s not fighting inside the EFC cage, Murrie is an avid golfer and builds houses for a living. When asked if his work and pleasure have anything to do with his ability to land quick submissions, he said that “I don’t think angles as such helps with my fighting, but the physical work helps my strength and grip strength.”
