Ready. Set. Go. Casey "Go" Greene that is. It's always great to talk to someone who is invested in advancing to the highest level of their craft. What's even better is when you meet someone who attacks their goal with such tenacity that it would seem that their very life depended on it. That is what you get when you meet Casey Greene. The California native has joined the team and it's all or nothing. Actually it's all for Greene, there is no other option. Using the hashtag #Project WIT, Greene is living his philosophy, "Whatever it takes" (WIT). Whatever it takes to be the best, whatever it takes to stay on top. Whatever it takes to be the best man he can be in all aspects of his life. As kickboxing in the US steadily climbs in popularity, Greene plans to fulfill his dream of being on another level as well as taking the sport to another level.
With a 4-3 record in Glory and currently ranked at #6, Greene is determined to set the welterweight division aflame. A California native, Greene embarked upon his kickboxing journey fearlessly and with the idea in mind that becoming the best means training with the best, Carlos Dekkers, brother of the late and great Ramon Dekkers. While seven fights does not a champion make, Greene has in this short time faced some of the best and brightest in Glory including Mike Lemaire, Dustin Jacoby and Francois Ambang. Greene states that he works toward becoming a well rounded fighter and with experience in MMA, he counts his ability to stand and bang as an asset.
This Friday, October 21st, Greene is prepared to do whatever it takes as he faces Glory newcomer Thongchai Sitsonpeenong at Glory 34 in Denver. While his opponent has a record of more than 100 fights a fact like that doesn't phase Greene as he is willing to take on all comers as he continues to climb the ranks in his division.
So if you haven't heard the name before, remember it, you'll be hearing it again and again.
