The saying goes that “good things come to those who wait.”
For Jeff Taylor, he has had no choice especially recently with the Covid-19 restrictions halting the regional mixed martial arts promotions from hosting fight cards. Jeff has been waiting patiently to make his amateur debut and at the end of the month will finally have his opportunity to carry everything he is learning into the cage for real. Taylor will face Nick Caracappa who has much in common with his opponent including making the walk out for the very first time.
These two warriors will clash in Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena on October 29th for CFFC. Following Jeff on social media, it is not hard to see how hard he works and how much time he dedicates to learning the craft. We caught up with Taylor to see how he was feeling about his upcoming bout and his camp. He tells MyMMANews…
“I wrestled throughout school and then I went on to play football and eventually found my way to MMA. I started training at a school in Philly but then I found 302 BJJ in Delaware and I love it here. I have so many great, knowledgeable training partners and coaches. Devon Estes, Steve McCabe, Earl “Trouble” Small, Larry Edwards, Don Mabrey, and many others who have helped me. They keep me humble and I ask questions all of the time because in my future I want to get to that level and beyond.”
Please check out our full interview on the link above. Jeff is a wonderful young man and is looking to not just make himself better, but the world around him as well. I really enjoyed our conversation and I think you will too.
MyMMANews will have live results from the back to back events from CFFC on October 29th and 30th and the professional fights on the cards will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass.

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
