I’ve seen AJ Matthews work out twice now. Beside his fun-loving and halo-halo munching exterior is a heart of a true warrior. He’s all business when it comes to the ring. AJ is all set to return on the cage at Bellator 181 on July 14 at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
Fil-American AJ ‘The Mercenary’ Matthews held at demo workout last May 25, 2017 at the Alphaland City Club. There’s no doubt he is ready for his return to the cage at Bellator 181 after seeing him breeze to his drills and spar with his coach. He also enjoyed several minutes of state-of-the-art recovery session at City Club. AJ Matthews has been also visible in Under Armour events and campaigns like the Test of Will Challenge and the National Test of Will Finals in the Philippines. During the event that was participated in by several athletes and celebrities, Matthews and ONE Championship fighter Mark Striegl competed against each other to test their abilities.
All roads leads to the WinStar World Casino for The Mercenary as he is all set for his return to action at Bellator 181 on July 14, 2017. AJ Matthews has been preparing hard for his next fight and has been seen devoting most of his waking hours into training and building relationships w his fellow Filipino Fighters both local and international. He’s one of the up-and-coming international fighters and has been stringing up impressive victories including a first-round technical knockout over Kyle Bolt at Bellator 131 in 2014, and a knockout win over Charlie Rader at Bellator 70 in 2012. One Championship heavyweight champion Brandon Vera and other UFC Champions have helped him in his preparation for his fight. AJ is also a professional striking coach.
The 29-year-old has also been a pride of his fellow Filipino fighters as he has recently based himself now in Philippines with his team MMA Alliance. Matthews, whose mother traces her roots in Tacloban, has been embraced by his Filipino fans with open arms with his humility and charm.
Good Luck AJ!!!
