Back to basics
A rounded fighter destined for a bright future at heavyweight, Damien Losco Remy has chosen to drop down to -93 kg for his next outing in the cage on January 22, 2023 at HEXAGONE MMA 6. Feeling confident and strong for the transformation, he is looking forward to this new beginning.
“You’ll see, at the weigh-in, I’m not the same guy.” Damien Losco Remy has a reputation for heightening the tension, but more than that for a deep confidence in his preparation.
Once announced as a real prospect in the heavyweight division, the Parisian fighter makes his transition to the – 93 kg division for HEXAGONE MMA 6. Victim of a torn on the anterior cruciate ligaments of the left knee during his last appearance in the cage last year, the 34-year-old has chosen to start again on a solid basis. “I am not a heavyweight on a daily basis,” he explained. “I happened to be propelled into a title bout in 2019, and after that, most of the organizations identified me as a heavyweight. So this is a returning step. By the way, when I was world champion of Thai boxing in 2018, it was in the -86kg!”
“I’ve always moved between disciplines”
Moreover, the representative of Phoenix Cross Fight (where he also teaches) has a very varied martial arts background. In addition to his bare-knuckle boxing experience, he has a first degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and most recently attained a brown belt in “Lucha Libre”. “In my career, I have always moved between disciplines, between English style, Muay Thai, ground… Originally, I was more of a boxer, but I have largely filled the gaps. Now I don’t have a specific strong point. I feel very complete in all areas.”
Damien Losco Remy also benefits from a deep knowledge of his body developed through his professional practice as a naturopath in conjunction with his time on the mats. “It includes massages and the use of plants or essential oils. My specialty is joint pain. I know how to treat it, and it has a direct impact on my performance. The head affects the body, and the body affects performance.”
