Clip from interview with Jason Witt above
Getting ready for his third bout in the UFC, Jason Witt is eagerly looking to get his momentum rolling inside the Octagon. Having 24 professional bouts under his belt, Witt has seen the bright lights of the world’s most elite promotions.
After a rough promotional debut last June, “The Vanilla Gorilla” Witt bounced back with an impressive 2nd round submission victory where he “buzz sawed through Cole Williams,” as he puts it. Now, Witt is currently sharpening the iron as he prepares for Matt “SemiTheJedi” Semelsberger.
Witt fully believes “my experience will definitely play a factor in this,” he emphasizes. Continuing with, “I’ve seen things he hasn’t seen, I’ve been through things he hasn’t been through,”
Discussing his keys to victory, Witt confesses, “putting pressure on him.” Continuing, “keeping him against the cage and just grinding him out. I know that I’ll be able to hold him down and just keep grinding him down.”
Knowing things don’t always go directly to plan on any given fight night, Witt’s confident in his Plan B; “beat him physically so no matter what happens, I’m going to beat him!”
Confident in his prediction, Witt boldly claims on fight night, “It’ll be first-round grind him out, second round I’m going to hurt him.”
