Underground Profile: Chris Corr

There a those who train to get into shape, and then there's Chris Corr, a New Generation Karate rep who transformed himself from pudgy 175-pound scrapper to svelte 133-pound grappling machine. At yesterday's UCL, Corr - known affectionately as "Psycho" to his teammates - notched his first MMA win, dominating a game Doug "Lionheart" Ahammer on the ground from the beginning of the first round to the end of the third. But what was most impressive was how far Corr had come and the knowledge that it took one heck of a lot of hard work for him to get there. Throughout the years a number of talented bantam- and featherweights have stepped into the ring at the UCL; it may be time for Psycho to hunt them down one by one.
