November 30, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Shawn Bunch recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his debut against Chad Coon at Bellator 82. Check out the highlights:

On making his MMA debut tonight as opposed to just dreaming about it: “It’s a different feeling, but I’m ready.”

On moving past his street fighting days to a new level: “You just try to knock somebody out without it getting broken up. This is more, like, strategizing and putting things together. I can’t just go out there and swing. I don’t know how I’m going to react when the bell rings. I’ve never been in a real MMA fight. But I’ve been in tons of competitions.”

On his plan to try and stay relaxed out there: “Just be able to go out there and do what I have to do. It’s in my nature to win, so I’m on point any time I need to go.”

On Coon: “I know he’s a tall wrestler, and he’s been around for a little while as an amateur. My brother is friends with him.”
