On Saturday, January 14, 2012, Charlie Cosens successfully defended his middleweight title for the Impact Fight League at the Place of Auburn Hills. Cosens
was going up against a 7-2 fighter named Cody Wall fighting out of the American Muscle Gym in Grand Rapids, MI. There was a crowd of 2,000 to 3,000 people at the Palace. As the fighters walked to the cage they walked down a 300ft catwalk with flames shooting up 10 to 15ft in the air. The atmosphere was electric with the music booming and the fans cheering.
The main difference between an average fighter and a true mixed martial artist is the time, dedication, and sacrifice that is put into training. Cosens is a veteran of mixed martial arts that truly understands what it takes to get it done in the cage. He attributes a huge amount of his success to the incredible amount of support he gets from his students at Cosens MMA.
