Michael Cyr Plans On Keeping His 100% Finish Rate At LFA 121

Spokane, Washington, has been a hotbed for some incredible MMA talent in the last few years. Of course, you had established fighters like Michael Chiesa, Julianna Pena as the ones who put Washington on the map. But at a little gym named Warriorcamp MMA, there are some killers such as Terrance McKinney, Josh Rettinghouse, Saidyokub Kakhramonov, and Michael Cyr.

Cyr (3-0) made his professional debut in 2020 after going 3-0 on the amateur scene. He fought twice in 2021, finishing both of his fights in the first round. First, he knocked Chris Varner out in 29 seconds, and then in his most recent outing, he submitted Kameron Jordan at B2 Fighting Series 139 to end his year.

Cyr has a 100% finishing rate dating back to his amateurs, and he is looking to extend that when he makes his LFA debut this Friday.

“You know, I always like a knockout because I only got one of those, and I would like another one, but I’m okay with anything,” he told Cageside Press in an exclusive interview recently. “I’ve only had three pro fights and three ammys, but they have all been finishes. So, looking finish one way or another, I only take what comes and don’t force anything…Why waste the cardio if you don’t need it.”

Cyr faces a fellow undefeated prospect Alden Coria at LFA 121. Coria is 5-0 with four finishes and fights out of 4 oz Fight Club in Texas. It’s a fight Cyr is taking on relatively short notice, which actually has an upside.

“Got this fight on short notice, so it didn’t effect any of my holidays. Had fun, ate a lot of food, drank some beer,” Cyr told us, who added that he stays close to fighting weight at all times, meaning his weight cut won’t be too bad.

Both fighters are very young in their careers, and a win will really boost them up.

Watch the rest of Michael Cyr’s interview above. Cyr vs. Coria goes down Friday, January 14, at LFA 121 in Dallas, Texas. The event can be streamed exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
