Fierce is the heart of a fighter: One Marine vet’s pro fighting success | Marine Corps Times

A rising prodigy in the mixed martial arts world, Kyle Stewart has spent a lifetime pursuing fighting, martial arts and engaging in bloody battles with Taliban fighters in the volatile Helmand province, Afghanistan.

Now, boasting a 10-0 professional MMA record, the Marine veteran says his success is owed to his time in the Corps.

The former 0331 machine gunner served three deployments to Afghanistan and was part of one of the first Marine battalions to take on the Taliban in ­Helmand province — an experience he says helped shape him into a fierce and tenacious MMA fighter.

Without the Corps, he says, “I wouldn’t have the intestinal fortitude to get into the cage today.”
