Following a loss in his very first battle of 2021 to Sergey Spivak at UFC Fight Night in February, heavyweight Jared Vanderaa was aiming to rebound when he handled Justin Tafa at UFC Fight Night in May.
Following 3 rounds, Vanderaa had the ability to get the consentaneous choice success, and get his very first win correct in the UFC.
” I seemed like that battle went not according to strategy,” Vanderaa informed MMAWeekly.com. “The strategy was to take him down and beat him up on the ground, and you saw how that went.
” It was an excellent battle at the end of the day since I got Fight of the Night. I understand my corner resembled I was going to get Fight of the Night, and I understood I could, however my focus was simply on winning.”
Having had actually blended outcomes when a battle goes the range, Vanderaa was hoping his battle would not boil down to a choice, however a win’s a win in his book.
” I didn’t care how I won aside from I didn’t wish to go to the judges,” stated Vanderaa. “The judges do not like me. Because case it exercised in my favor and I got a bonus offer also.”
This Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada, Vanderaa (12 -5) will seek to construct a winning streak for himself when he handles Alexander Romanov (14 -0) in an initial heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night: Dern vs. Rodriguez.
” I need to endure him attempting to consume me for 3 rounds,” Vanderaa stated of Romanov. “That’s the huge one. After that if I run in a circle enough I do not believe he has the cardio to maintain. I’m going to tire him out and beat him by fatigue.
” I certainly believe his fumbling is something powerful, however I feel I have the edge in the striking department, the cardio, and I believe he is available in heavy which might be a hinderance to his strategy.”
For Vanderaa continuing to win and remain in the UFC is the greatest thing today, as he does not wish to be a fighter that continuously cycles in and out of the promo.
” That’s the primary objective is to continue winning and keeping that agreement,” stated Vanderaa.
” My objective was to eliminate in the UFC and retire in the UFC. I’m there now and I’ve seen a few of those people who do a little stint in the UFC and get tossed out then take a couple of battles and return and do all right, however I wish to remain in the UFC (and not need to leave and return).”
