Humanizing Athletes: UFC Fighter Austin Hubbard’s Favorite Things

UFC Fighter Austin Hubbard (12-4)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on Earth; however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Elevation Fight Team, which fights out of Denver, CO, is having an unbelievable year in 2020. One of the reasons why is because of Austin “Thud” Hubbard.

Hubbard is a former LFA lightweight champion and has gone 2-2 in the UFC so far. In his last outing, he defeated Max Rohskopf. He didn’t just defeat him; he made him quit and won the fight via TKO (retirement) without having to fight the third round.

Hubbard was supposed to fight Joe Solecki instead of Rohskopf in June; however, Solecki had to pull out. Well, they are now rescheduled to fight on August 22, 2020, at UFC on ESPN 15.

Hubbard is looking to go 2-1 in 2020, climb the lightweight rankings, and continue the Elevation Fight Team’s streak.
