A Brief History on Anthony Lemon
Anthony started organized wrestling at the age of 8 in Hillsboro, North Dakota. He went back to his birthplace of Frazee, where he wrestled for the Frazee Hornets. After moving to Tullahoma at the age of 11, he continued his wrestling all through school and started USA Golden Glove Boxing with Ed Nutt and Chuck Glover. He was described as a natural. During his junior year of high school, Anthony began to train with Team KO out of Manchester, Tenn., anchored by team captain and current professional MMA fighter Wesley "Superman" Sullivan. There, he started learning the basics of BJJ and forming his own fight style and passion for the sport of MMA.
For his 18th birthday, Anthony enjoyed his first amateur full-contact MMA fight against John Hall in Nashville. After having his hand raised in victory via ground and pound, he was hooked for life. Anthony's amateur career was designed for him to fight the toughest opponents available, from professional boxers to active NCAA Division I wrestlers. Knowning he was planning for a pro career, he only wanted to face the best. Such drive put him on the cards of top amateur promotions such as V3, the XFL, Gameness MMA, Bang Championship, the RFC and the Heavy Hitters Fight Series. Along the way, he learned what it was going to take to be successful in this sport.
Anthony also caught the notice of matchmaker Mike Camp. He offered Anthony the chance to make his pro debut for King of the Cage in Walker, Minn., Lemon's home state, in March of 2012. Lemon walked out of Walker with a strong win, then earned what Anthony calls his toughest fight yet in May at Cage Brawl IX against 4-0 pro Tyler Minton. Once again, Anthony walked out with an impressive win. His last opponent, Pro Elite veteran Paul Gardner, fared no better losing via rear naked choke. Now 3-0 as a pro, Anthony is preparing for his XFC debut in September at XFC 20 in Knoxville against Drew Kennedy.
What advice does Anthony have for the up-and-coming amateur fighters in MMA?
"Don't worry about your record. It means nothing as an amateur. It's your opponents that will make you the fighter of the future. I'm tired of seeing guys with perfect amateur records. That only means they're not fighting tough opponents. When you go pro, you go back to 0-0. Have fun with this sport. That's when it all changed for me. I will always be in learning mode. And I will always have respect for this sport and its participants. That's what makes me Beast Mode."
