Canadian MMA fighter Kelton Sneve is making his pro debut on May 20th in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota against Canon Swanson. Sneve is a former Ignite Featherweight and Lightweight Champion as an amateur, with a record of 6-1. He trains at Thunder Valley Martial Arts and Leading Edge MMA, and considers himself a freestyle fighter who is complete on all sides, like a Rubix cube.
Sneve started as a fan of MMA, and his first fight that he watched was Dillashaw vs. Cruz, which hooked him. He loves the whole aspect of MMA, as it is a fight with almost no rules and is the closest thing to a “real fight.” To Sneve, martial arts is a lifestyle that embodies the ability to adapt and overcome and mental toughness.
For Sneve, his next fight is what he dreams about, and he wants to take on all comers and beat the best of the best. His last fight was a big one, as he came in off his first loss, fighting up a weight for another title against a very game fighter, Trey Lawson. Sneve is known as “The Konqueror,” and he wants something that is actually true, which is very true in his case.
Sneve is grateful for the support of his loved ones, teammates, coaches, sponsors, family, and friends, who are the reason he is here. He loves hanging out with loved ones, and after the success, most have hopped on the Sneve train. He believes in staying healthy, fighting, rinsing, and repeating. Sneve is also a huge sports fan and watches most sports, except soccer.
To Sneve, calm, cool, collected time is essential to executing the mission. Brutal honesty with oneself gives all the answers needed. Pre-fight composure and mental focus are crucial, and breathing control regulates a lot of the body’s stress levels. Affirmations and silencing doubt are also essential, as doubt can be hard to silence, but knowing that you put in the work beforehand is the best way to stay loose.
Sneve’s sole loss was a tough moment, but it was very necessary for growth. He believes that your life can change once that door is closed, and knowing that breeds a different mentality in itself. Sneve does a little bit of everything, but MMA consumes his life. He believes that being calm and confident is essential, even though mental toughness is important.
