Light heavyweight standout Jordan Young started his professional career on an absolute warpath. With 9 of his 11 wins coming via submission, Young was building a solid foundation as a fan favorite that finished fights impressively.
The submission specialist entered PFL in March after becoming a free agent earlier this year. With bright eyes set on PFL’s 2020 tournament/million-dollar prize, Young was eager to have a consistent run of fights for the promotions upcoming season. Unfortunately, with the worldwide pandemic wreaking havoc and causing so much hysteria across the globe, PFL made the difficult decision to cancel it’s 2020 season.
Knowing they have time until their next fight card, the PFL has put their staff to work creating content around some of their star-studded fighters in a new YouTube series, titled “Prep Point.” The promotion’s new YouTube series will air on Thursdays at 10 am starting August 20. In the debut episode, Jordan Young will be the featured athlete. Young joined MyMMANews to give a glimpse of what to expect in the series premiere.
”Whether you’re a fan of MMA or you’re just a fan of sports in general. If you like athletes and their stories, it’s something to check out” Young says. “Not only fighters but the people that are interviewing (us) are dope as well.” Former WWE announcer turned PFL ring announcer, Lilian Garcia is said to host the YouTube series. Chatting with Garcia throughout filming, Young isn’t shy to say Garcia was “super cool.” He goes further into explaining how he “Got to be a little more human” on the show. As well as discussing how the show “will give the fans more insight to me as a person.” Leaving fans hanging with a teaser, Young finishes with, “I think that it’s something that fan should check out and learn about the athletes before the 2021 season kicks off!”
