Interview with DeAndre Anderson above
DeAndre Anderson (5-0) discusses his vacant flyweight title fight against Da’Mon Blackshear (10-4) at CFFC 103 on Nov. 19. DeAndre also talks about how he got into MMA, what type of training camp he’s had ahead of the fight and why a win could be a fast track to a UFC contract.
“I think this is the one that gets me (in the UFC). Just with what happened in the last fight (highlight-reel finish), if I’m impressive in this fight. I feel like it gets me in the UFC. I definitely would love to be in the UFC, financially that would be great. I need to do this to help my family out to make a better life for them. I know, if I keep winning the UFC will come. I’m not really too stressed about it because winning carries it all.”
