Maxime Fecteau Rising Star 3 post-fight interview

After suffering a TKO loss to Stephane Pelletier at Rising Star 1, Maxime Fecteau (2-1) returned at Rising Star 3, calmly submitting Dave Depathie (0-3) via arm-bar at 3:04 of Round 1. I caught up with Fecteau by phone the day after, where he told me about his confidence going into the fight, using his game-plan to set up the finish, how he keeps his head up following losses, where he got his nickname, and what’s next for him.
