Carson Beebe, WSOFCARSON BEEBE:

“It’s a huge honor being on the card. I’m fighting a very top-tier opponent. Just to be on the same card as all these guys on here, it’s a bunch of legends on the show, so I just want to say thanks to World Series of Fighting and Ray Sefo for giving me an opportunity to go out there and put on a great show. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got in the cage on Saturday night.”

(How has your preparation been for this fight?)

“This is going to be probably the biggest fight of my career, so I’ve been training that way, and I’m ready to bring it. I think it’s going to be a fight that’s worthy of co-main event status, so I’m excited.”

Miguel TorresMIGUEL ANGEL TORRES:

“I’m happy to be on the card for World Series of Fighting 6. I’m happy they were able to get me on. I’ve been in this sport 15 years, and I’ve seen a lot of organizations and I’ve fought for a lot of different places, and they’re one of the organizations that are growing. They’re going to get to the top, and I’m happy I can be a part of that process. Preparations have gone very well for this fight. I’m looking to get back in there and get some respect – get back to the top where I was before.”

(Where have you been during this long layoff?)

“I’ve been real busy since the last World Series of Fighting. My lease was up on my gym. I had a gym in Hammond, Ind., and I went back and was doing my taxes, and I saw how crazy my overhead was. So I had to make a change if I wanted to sustain profits in my gym. So I had look for a new location, and I found a spot close to my home. My daughter was starting was school, so I wanted to make sure that I was around for that. And as I was doing the move to the gym, I found out it was riddled with mold crawling all through the installation, so I had to basically do a lot of work to remodel the whole gym. So basically the whole summer I spent training and doing carpentry work and laying down a new floor for the new gym. I made that move in July, and then I started training again in August. I got the call from World Series of Fighting to come back and take a fight, and I want to get back in there and start fighting again. I’ve been out for a while, and I missed it. I just can’t wait to get back in there and show what I can do.”

You can watch World Series of Fighting 6 on NBCSN at 8pm Chicago time.
