McCrohan has quickly earned a reputation as one of the top Northeast middleweight prospects, scoring impressive wins in both of his clashes in the ‪#‎CESMMA‬ cage. The ‪#‎Beverly‬ product believes his mindset of not being afraid to lose is the key to his success -- and he certainly won't be changing his approach for his Melikov fight.

“I’m nowhere near closing in on my potential,” stated McCrohan, who was also undefeated as an amateur. “I go out there every fight to get experience, have a little fun -- and put people away as impressively as I can, whether that’s with my hands, feet or on the ground. I don’t feel the pressure not to lose -- I just love to win, and the best way to win is by taking some calculated risks, having some fun and putting your opponent away.”

But Melikov’s reputation as one of ‪#‎Europe‬’s top prospects, with an undefeated streak in his native ‪#‎Russia‬ before resettling in ‪#‎America‬, is intimidating. While he has respect for McCrohan, he intends on ending his unbeaten tear when the cage door locks.

“CES MMA is one of the best promotions out there, and I’m really looking forward to this fight,” said Meilikov. “My plan is to put on an exciting show -- a great fight for the fans -- and then celebrate with the fans, because I’ve heard nothing but great things about CES MMA fans. I can’t wait. Let’s go!”
