Anacondas’ Alex Schoenauer is facing one of the toughest fights in his IFL
career Friday night in Houston where he squares off with Mike Ciesnolevicz of
the Silverbacks. In this href="http://members.mmaweekly.com/InTheCage.asp">exclusive pre-fight video interview with MMAWeekly style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:Arial'>, Alex talks about being a part of
Bas Rutten’s Anacondas and the fight with Mike C., as well as his controversial

interesting parts of the interview is Alex talking about he went from
engineering to being a boat captain and then to fighting.
Schoenauer, Jay Hieron has been a constant on the Anacondas. He is looking to
come back from a disappointing loss to Chris Wilson, a decision that he feels
should have fell in his favor. He faces Rory Markham in Houston. In this style='font-size:10.0pt'> style='font-family:Arial'>exclusive with Shannon Knapp on MMAWeekly style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:Arial'>, Hieron talks about his time in the

faces the toughest challenge of any fighter in Houston. The new guy on the
team, stepping up to fight an experienced fighter like Rothwell will be
difficult, but he’s a big, game fighter that says he’s ready to go.
