Today WMMA fighter Sean "Big Sexy" McCorkle stopped by the KLAQ Morning Show to talk about his upcoming fight against Brian Heden this Saturday at the Don Haskins Center.

In case your wondering why they call Sean "Big Sexy," well it's because he's 6'7 and weighs 310lbs.  He's probably one of the biggest MMA fighters in the world, and you would think that his height and weight would be a plus in the MMA world, but his weight is one of the things that makes it hard for him.

"In the UFC the weight cut-off for heavyweights is 265 lbs and I weigh about 310 with about 5% body fat.  So for me to lose an additional 45 pounds makes it very hard on my body."

Also in the interview, we find out how Sean decided to become a MMA fighter and what it's gonna take for him to get back into the UFC.

You can listen to the interview with the very funny and colorful fighter here:
