Michael ‘The Machine’ Dufort (8-1, amateur) pulled off his 5th straight 1st-round submission Saturday at Gladiator MMA, this time via triangle choke (see play-by-play below). I spoke with the 17 year-old St-Jean amateur after the fight about locking in another submission, driving two hours for an 80 second fight, his interest in fighting Zahabi‘s Louie Sanoudakis, his preferred nick-name, what’s next, and more.
