Ryan Quinn or the "Mighty Quinn" is a local fighter who is nationally known. Ryan is from Putnam Lake, NY originally, so he and I have many friends and experiences in common.

He is becoming a big star in the Mixed Martial Arts world and this next fight is a big step for him. He checked in with the Ethan and Lou show to talk about it this morning. Here's our chat with a little message from Quinn himself:

Be sure and check out Ryan Quinn taking on Awad or "ass wad" as I am calling him. The fight is this Friday night at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, NY.

If you can't be there in person, you can watch it on Spike TV. Furthermore, there is a viewing party at O'Connors Public House in Brewster that is sure to be a good time. Ryan has many friends and supporters in the local area that will be there to support him.
