1: When did you start training as an MMA fighter?

I first started training in Martial Arts around 2007 when I took up Muay Thai Kickboxing, after a couple of years I became interested in grappling and began training in Mixed Martial Arts around 2010.

2: How long have you been training with Tom Blackledge?

I've been training with Tom for 2 years now and the improvement I've felt is truly unbelievable. I honestly believe there's no better coach for me on the planet.

3: What has been your most memorable fight to date?

As far as my most memorable fight goes it's hard to say. Every fight is an experience you'll never forget. I really enjoyed my last fight as it was a re- match where I avenged a loss, putting him away in the second round was very satisfying and I put a lot of demons to bed that night.

4: What's a day in the life of James Lewis?

A day in the life of James Lewis usually consists of training, maybe some coaching...and more training! I get to do what I love every day so I feel very lucky.

5: What are your aspirations for your future in MMA?

My aspirations for my future in MMA are like most other fighters, I want to make it to the big leagues and there's no bigger promotion out there than the UFC. I'd also like to make a big impact in the UK and Europe as I make my way there.

6: Who inspires you in the world of MMA and why?

I can honestly say my biggest inspirations are my coach and my team mates.

Tom is a master of his craft and a constant source of knowledge and guidance. Looking around the Blackledge MMA Team you can't help to be inspired and Andrew Clamp is a perfect example, his work ethic and constant positivity drives me forward everyday through the rigours and challenges of a Professional Mixed Martial Artist.
