Interview with Jesse Arnett above
Jesse Arnett (18-7) discusses his bantamweight title fight against champion Denis Lavrentyev (11-2) on Nov. 6 at Parus Fight Championship 6. Jesse also talks about how he ended up training at Sanford MMA, having UFC veteran Nate Marquardt in his corner and the impact “Nate The Great” has had on him this camp.
“Nate ‘The Great’ Marquardt is a good guy. Nate’s a real mentor, he’s actually the first guy I met when I was there (at Sanford MMA) He’s literally an encyclopedia of MMA. He helped me set up a few of my techniques and two main weapons I’m using right now. He helped me tweak it. Without a doubt, I’m going to hit these on the Russian. Nate will also be in my corner for this fight.”
