Marcus Hicks (8-1) appears at ease when fighting.
Three straight submission victories in the WEC lightweight division earned the Texas native a shot at the title. In an August fight with current WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner, the 33-year-old suffered his first career loss after absorbing a brutal flurry of strikes from the champ.
In his well-deserved rest period following that WEC 35 bout, Hicks has entered another side of the MMA business.
"The Wrecking Ball" has joined forces with a new promotion in the Dallas area, Supreme Warrior Championship. Hicks has been installed in the role of an adviser for the upstart organization.
Hicks discussed his position in the SWC while a guest on Wednesday’s edition of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).
