Interview with Andre Petroski above
I have been cageside calling Andre Petroski’s fights for the last couple years and he has left nothing but wreckage in his wake. Since turning pro in November of 2018, Petroski has gone 5-0 finishing every one with a stoppage (3 TKOs due to strikes and 2 submissions).
He has been dominant and dangerous. Without this pandemic that we are currently dealing with, he very possibly could be 7-o and looking for a UFC contract or a fight on Dana White’s Contender Series. I stopped up to his newest venture at Underground Wrestling Club in Runnemede, New Jersey to see what he was up to and he tells MyMMANews…
“I have signed with the sports management company, Iridium. They have a lot of big names and many of them are in the UFC. They set me up me up with coach Montoya in Englewood, Colorado. I’m going to be doing my camp there. They recommended for me to stay ready for a short notice fight. Right now there are as many opportunities to get to the UFC as there ever was with some guys having to pullout for injuries, the virus and there are events almost every week it seems.”
You can check out our entire video on the link above. Petroski is getting a great benefit from being in the gym atmosphere full-time while teaching private lessons and doing whatever possible following the restricted guidelines being enforced by the state. Dre’ looks as lean as I’ve ever seen him in between fights and says he is walking around at 195 which is only 10 pounds over his fighting weight. He has a strong wrestling background and has continually improved his jiu-jitsu under the Balance Studios camp which boasts one of the top teams in the region.

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.
