LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
This week's 7 Sports Person of the Week is former McNeese State football player Josh Quayhagen.
Since October 2011, the 25-year-old Lake Charles native is 5-0 as a professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter.
"It's just been an awesome, awesome, stressful journey, but worth every Minute," Quayhagen said. As the owner of the Performance Evolution Gym on Ryan Street, Quayhagen said he stays motivated by helping others work on their physical fitness.
"It's awesome to get athletes, people I used to play football with at McNeese get to come in and they work out and push me, just as much if not more than the people who come in out of shape."
On Saturday, Quayhagen and eight of his coworkers from Performance Evolution will compete in the "Lake Charles vs. The World" MMA fight at the Lake Charles Civic Center.
"(It's) still a lot tougher to watch somebody get in the ring than to actually be in there, so I have to do that seven times and then get in at the end of the night," he said.
Quayhagen's professional career is just beginning, but he's dreaming big time.
"The ultimate goal is to go fight the best, so obviously UFC is the goal. I'm happy where I am right now and happy to just keep fighting."
