Gary Grant Jr’s USKA Fight Sports is set to close out their schedule for the 2021 season on December 11th in Allentown, Pennsylvania at the Parkview Inn. USKA Pro/Am looks to be loaded with action as usual as Gary told me that this may be the biggest card he has done thus far.
In the main event, the much-anticipated rematch between JJ Veramendi and Richard Cooke is going to be a scorcher. In their first fight, Veramendi connected flush to the face immediately after Cooke lost his head gear and the referee declared the fight a no-contest.
MyMMANews will be ringside handling post-fight interviews and we will also bring you highlights and full results from the event. Leading up to fight night, we caught up with a few members of the card to get a little preview. Jared Jones joined us to tell us a little about his path into combat sports. He says…
“I started martial arts when I was 7 years old. I began training tae kwon with my Grand master Torres at Team Torres Martial Arts in Edgewater Park, NJ. I’ve been a practitioner of martial arts for a little over 10 years now and I started kickboxing at 19 years old and that year I took my first fight and here I am now getting ready for my fourth.”
Please check out our full interview on the link above. To prepare for his opponent, Justin Carter (4-1 MMA), Jones has been doing some training at MPR Endurance MMA in Bucks County, PA and says that getting into a cage for fighting is definitely in his future. Jones sounds like he has a very solid base and plan and is not rushing into anything. His future looks bright, and we would also like to give a shout out to Jared Jones for being a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces.

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.
