"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
