A- My name is Corey Andres.
A- Dayton, Ohio
A- Vision MMA of Dayton Ohio
A- My favorite training partners/coaches would have to be Brandon Laino and Joe Miller because I can’t choose between the two. We’ve trained together for nearly 8 years. These guys know me the best and know how to push me no matter what martial art I am drilling or competition I am training for. They’ve always been there for me and I would literally die for these men because they may not be direct blood but they are family. We’ve bled, ached, and hurt each other in the best ways.
A- I have been training off and on for about 9 years but consistently with Vision MMA for the past 2 years training anywhere from 4-6 days a week.
A- I can’t say I have a belt to my name but I am actively trained in Brazilian Jiu Jistu, Wrestling, Muay Thai, and Boxing and just recently Tae Kwon Do. I honestly try to train whatever martial art I can get my hands on.
A- My MMA debut was December 11th, 2010 for OXF 20 Holiday Bash in Dayton, Ohio against Rob Dejene at Dayton Montgomery County Fairgrounds.
A- I started competing in MMA because it’s what I love to do and win or lose I feel I have a calling to it. I will train any type of MMA anywhere the rest of my life.
A- I feel the matchup is great for me and will be a great way to show off some of the new skill sets I’ve acquired. After about a year and half of taking the time to train more and get myself together since my last fight, I know it’ll be a great fight for everyone.
A-I predict the fight will end in the first round via rear naked choke but if I see oppurtunity for a knockout or any other submission then it will be taken quickly.
A- The fans should come out to see me compete because I’m about to put on a show. If they want to see the true techique and talent then they will show up for this.
A- All I have to say to my opponent is I respect him as I do any other person but once we step into that ring and that bell rings he better be ready because for that possible 9 minutes he is no friend of mine.
A-The most memorable moment in my MMA Career for me isn’t anything specific to achievements or personal goals but more to my amazing teammate and friend Kenny Warrix who passed away nearly two years ago. He left me with great memories though and we have a whole team that he meant that world too.
A-My favorite MMA moment as a fan is watching one of my teammates Dom Steele on a live UFC Fight slam KO Dong Hyun Kim.
A- To be honest my only other activities outside of MMA is reading my bible and practicing my christian religion daily and teaching and hanigin out with my 6 year old son Adon. MMA is my life and the only hobby I stay in tune with daily. It may sound boring to others but for me it is peace to my life and the kind of life I’ve been waiting to obtain for over a decade.
A-Outside of MMA for a company called Killer Brownie where I help manage a team to produce and ship out brownies in massive bulk throughout North America.
A- Any type of music works for me while training but I do feel a rhythm in my sparring or rolling when it comes to hard rock and some old school rap/r&b hip hop.
A-Favorite Quote: Proverbs 28:2- “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but of a man who is wise and understanding, the state thereof shall endure.”
A- My all time favortie movie would have to be Blood and Bone with Michael Jai White.
A-My favorite actors would have to be between Brad Pitt and Michael Jai White. Hard to choose for me.
A- My favortie song would have to be Bodies by Drowning Pool.
A-My favorite musical artist is Incubus.
