Mixed Martial Arts fighter Travis McCullough was skinny with a big mouth when he was a kid, so he got beat up regularly. Finally, he learned to defend himself and at 23 he turned his fighting skills into a profession as a mixed martial arts fighter.
On Saturday, McCullough fought at a Valley City event but was defeated but only after putting up a good fight.
McCullough, who lives in Tower City, is now 31 and fights because he likes it, he said. He enjoys the travel and meeting people along the way.
