Hello Spokane, this is not a regular post for Spokane news but our new photojournalist Katie, an avid fight photographer put together a small piece for a local Spokane MMA fighter getting the opportunity of his life.

The pandemic this year has changed life and sports as we know it in every aspect. There hasn’t been a time in history where sports were interrupted like this since World War II. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been able to work around the pandemic following safety procedures and constant testing of their athletes. The UFC’s president, Dana White had an ambitious idea some time back to host fights on an Island in Abu Dubai. They call it Fight Island and have had shows there as well as the Apex in las Vegas in the last few months all keeping up with the strict guidelines and the absence of an audience. Sometimes they have done as many as three shows a week keeping up with already scheduled fights for the year of 2020.

Dana White’s Contender Series, which gives fighters an opportunity to win a UFC contract is back again tonight on ESPN. Spokane’s own Daniel Swain, known as “Agent Orange'' will get his opportunity to showcase his skills in the cage August 11th. Swain’s nickname “Agent Orange” was given to him by his wrestling coach because of his fiery red hair but also because of his ability to mess a lot of people up. Swain, 29 began wrestling at age 4. He wrestled at Newport High school, Simon Frasier University and Douglas College where he won for the National Collegiate Wrestling Association (NCWA). Swain remembers being 13 and watching a fight between UFC veteran’s Matt Hughes and Carols Newton and saying to himself “I wanna do that someday”. Although Swain had other jobs in the past that included delivering home health equipment he ran full speed towards his passion of fighting. Swain began training in Vancouver BC at West Coast BJJ, then Trevor Prangley’s AKA in Coeur D’alene, and currently trains at Spokane Warrior Camp under Pablo Alfonso and has been there the last three years.

Swain and his wife Amber recently had their 5th child. This is their second biological baby and they adopted three other children. Adoption has been close to their hearts. Swain was able to continue to train and make the most of the pandemic by mountain biking, doing heavy bag work at home and now that his local fight gym is back open, following nationwide lockdown he has been able to fine tune his skills to prepare for his challenger.

Swain will face off against T.J. Laramie out of Ontario Canada. “I’m prepared to go three rounds with him,” says Swain. Swain said he's had mentors in his fighting career that have pushed him to do well including Trevor Prangly and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson who both have contributed a long career to the sport of mixed martial arts. Coaches Pablo Alfonzo, Joel Thomas, Richie Whitson, Vincent Peak, have prepared him greatly for these fights as well as training partners Jake Lindell, Michael Cyr, and Andre Dyfort. He also gives special attention to his wife being there for him and supporting him in all his dreams. “I do this for my family. I want my kids to see that if you work hard enough and have a passion for something you can pursue anything you want in this life”.
