West Coast Fighting featherweight champion Andre 'The Fury' Fili spent his time on the Verbal Scrap Podcast discussing everything from his coming fight against Chris Saunders at Tachi Palace Fights on November 15th, to training with Team Alpha male, to the best way for women to flirt with him. Many in the industry may know Fili for either his ten professional MMA victories, his West Coast Fighting title, or his five first round finishes. His last bout, against Ricky Wallace, was even discussed on the the popular MMA television show 'Inside MMA' hosted by the legendary Bas Rutten.

A lesser known fact about the mixed martial arts phenom is that he has been involved in the music industry for quite some time now. He is the front man for a new group known as It's Godzilla, and their style would be labelled by Fili as "a math rock, hardcore rock group." But where one band may be too much for another person, Fili has been involved with another group called Boss Biz since he was a young man. He says the group is much more to him than just a musical act, but a band of brothers.
"That's like my family. I grew up with those guys," Fili said on Verbal Scrap (www.srmma.com). "Then we started making hip-hop. We've been doing that since we were probably like eighth grade. I was like thirteen (years old)."

."It's hard sometimes being young and grinding it out through a fight camp," Fili said on VERBAL SCRAP (www.srmma.com). "A lot of people have to do it by themselves. I just feel blessed to have (Avila) as my friend and a training partner. It's just a wild ride you know, we're enjoying it."
To hear and support Boss Biz you can check out the free download of their latest mixtape here and like their facebook. Listen and download It's Godzilla here and like their facebook for more band information. Both bands will be playing an open mic night November 3, so check out their social media for more information. Fili is known for effectively landing hard and devastating strikes in the cage, but it seems that his musical talents lend credence to the musical legend Bob Marley's quote, "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."
