CLEVELAND, OH- Local mixed martial artist John Gunther believes his next win can lead to interest from national organizations. The 5-year MMA veteran has proven to be an elite competitor inside the cage, following up a 7-1 amateur career with 5 consecutive victories at the professional ranks. "The Machine", as Gunther is fittingly nicknamed is currently living in a Cleveland hotel near the Strong Style Training Center in Independence as training camp winds down for his upcoming fight.

Gunther (5-0) will next battle Nick "Nyquil" Browne (7-0) from Uniontown Pennsylvania at Revelation Fight Organizations "Big Guns 25" event next Saturday inside Fairhaven Hall at the Richland County Fairgrounds. It will be the third straight undefeated opponent Gunther has faced as he looks to stay perfect as a pro against his most polished opponent to date.

Sports Buzz host Brian Skowronski caught up with Gunther before a training session at Strong Style this week to talk about his budding career, upcoming fight and more.

During their conversation, Gunther touches on his health, training camp, preparation for Browne, expresses what makes him a quality fighter, and even dives into the best "Daily John Gunther Facts" currently floating around on the Web.
