Jesse Ronson Says He’s Shooting for a UFC Contract

November 26, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Jesse Ronson spoke with MMAjunkie following his win over Ryan Healy at Score Fighting Series 7 on Friday about his UFC chances and more. Check out the highlights:

On his hopes that the win put him on the UFC’s radar: “I would like for this fight to put me on the next level, but we’ll see how it goes.”

On his training partners supporting his bid for the UFC: “They’re pulling for me. We’ll see if I get that call.”

On not finishing Healy: “I was just upset because I think I landed six or seven clean ones with my power leg and two or three with my lead leg, and I was like, ‘This guy has to go down from one of these.’ So I threw the one and he wobbled, so I’m like, ‘One more and he’s going down.’ I hit him with the second one, and he didn’t go down. The more he didn’t go down, the more I wanted to hurt him and try to knock him out.”

On being willing to take a fight whenever the UFC calls: “If they call me and say, ‘Do you want to fight this guy,’ I’m not going to say no,”
