Bellators lead Cutman Matt Marsden Stops by Affliction HQ
Affliction Officially welcomes Bellator MMA Lead Cutman Matt Marsden to the family. The importance of having an experienced cutman in your corner is priceless. It literally can make the difference whether or not the Dr. will allow you to continue to fight on your terms or if you get sent home. People often think that you simply need some vaseline and a bottle of epinephrine and you’re good to go. There’s much more knowledge than you, or I for that matter, can ever imagine is needed to excel in this profession.
Matt learned his craft in the military, where he attended surgical and medical school, and maintains his skills at a local hospital in his hometown where he does orthopedic and and emergency surgeries. With only a small amount of Cutmen needed in this profession, it’s not easy to get your foot in the door. Matt worked his way, much like a fighter working for free, on regional shows and finally getting an opportunity with Bellator on a trial basis. That trial has turned into a full time spot on the roster, keeping him traveling to about 20+ events every year.
With additional Bellator Kickboxing this year he will be racking up some frequent flyer miles. If you are not familiar with him yet, just tune into any Bellator event and keep an eye out for the Bearded Protector of Warriors as he enters the cage with the large Affliction patch, so proudly worn, into the arena!!!
