"MORRISON vs BROWN JAN 10TH on VERSUS"

It’s been a long hard road, but the hard work has finally paid off for Anthony Morrison! After 2 huge wins in a 3 week period, Morrison, now going by the ring name “Cheesesteak”, has gotten the attention of the folks at the WEC.

At Ring of Combat 27, Morrison defeated Kurt Pellegrino pupil, and WEC prospect Jeff Lentz to claim the organization’s 145-pound title. The victory was a highlight in his career but the win was bittersweet.

“When I won the belt I felt good but the second I got out of the cage it was back to reality; I had to deal with burying my aunt and cousin. So while I was happy, the family loss was heavy on me,” said the WKA 145 lb MMA champion. “I fought that fight with a heavy heart; my aunt had a heart attack, cousin got shot, the win was kind of surreal.”

Building upon a big win, Morrison entered the cage only 2 weeks later to take on WEC prospect and UFC vet Alvin Robinson. Morrison quickly defeated Robinson by TKO in the opening minute of the 1st round.

With this momentum Morrison signs a multi fight deal with the WEC and will face the division’s former champion Mike Brown on January 10th.
