BFL 76’s Jamie Siraj has the UFC on the horizon after health scare nearly took his life

Interview with Jamie Siraj below

Jamie Siraj (8-2) discusses his lightweight fight against Ryan Rohovich (5-5) at BFL 76 on March 30. Jamie also spoke about his major health issues which nearly took his life, how these last three years have been not competing and how next month’s fight is a steppingstone to a potential UFC contract.

“Right now, I just want to win this fight. Prove to myself that I can be, who I know I’m capable of being. I think after the performance I’ll put on. I don’t see how the Contender Series, UFC or whatever, a big promotion isn’t next. For me right now, I just want activity and show consistency in my career. But I feel like after this, especially with an impressive finish, 100% I’m going to be on the next season of DWCS.”
