Training Style wrestling Master/Instructor David Robins
Billy started MMA because one day, while coaching wrestling, his first coach Jeremiah Gurley approached him and asked him to come check Gurley's gym.
Swanson fell in love with the atmosphere, and the training, just like he did with wrestling. It was a new challenge.
Billy went and helped corner for some guys from MMAI, and watched an amateur heavyweight fight that was on the card. As the action was going on in the cage, he saw gaps in skill, weaknesses in their training and technique, and thought he could beat those guys.
So, he started training hard, and had a great support group from all the kids he coached, and even his own family.
Billy is the third youngest of nine kids: 3 brothers, 3 sisters, and 2 step sisters.
His goals are sky high! He plans to the best in the world and go on a reign unlike any other heavyweight has done before! UFC, WATCH OUT... HERE HE COMES!
Billy loves the outdoors pertaining to fishing, camping, hiking, sports, etc
He loves cars, all styles of the fighting arts, anything country, music, going mudding, etc. He's a small town country boy at heart, with an ability to achieve his goals.
