Win-seeking soldier Ottawa-based MCpl has sight set on first MMA win


Master Corporal Randy Turner, one of 20 scheduled combatants for WreckMMA’s upcoming Unite for Brian’s Fight mixed martial arts event in Gatineau, has taken vacation time to run the risk of getting his blocked knocked off. Or doing the block knocking.Familiar territory.The well spoken, chisel-jawed 31-year-old who is five-foot-six has spent 13 years in the Canadian military throughout Canada, rising to his current rank and current place in fighting by constantly seeing just how far up his bar of potential could climb.”Even keel has never been good enough for me,” said Turner, who is 0-1 in advance of facing Mikael Pellerin (0-1) of Victoriaville, Que. on the 10-bout card April 16 at the Robert Guertin Arena.

The event is dedicated to raising money for the family of Brian Dyck, an Ottawa police officer and former Canadian soldier diagnosed last fall with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Turner, currently vacationing from his military job for two weeks, mixes disciplines but doesn’t mince words.

“If you never trip and fall you will probably lead a boring life because everything is always going to be perfect and grand and unfold exactly how you see or want it.”

Born and raised in Halifax, Turner starts out five days per week with a five-kilometre run before training three to five hours in brazilian jiu jitsu, muay thai boxing and wrestling at the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts.

“I think if you are going to be successful in this sport, you’ve got to have an inner pit bull, and know how and when to release it,” said Turner, adding his gym contains nobody from the wrong side of the tracks.

“There are only people who have a great admiration for this sport and want to do better,” said Turner, who will fight at 135 pounds. “I don’t see where thugs would fit in to a place like this.”
