Nate Jennerman and Damon Jackson spoke with AXS TV (per MMAjunkie) ahead of their fight at LFA 47 on Friday. Highlights are below:

Jennerman on how the fight will end: “Damon comes in with 14 finishes. I come in with 10 finishes. Somebody’s getting finished tonight, and it’s not going to be me…I see it happening in the standup, this time. I think it’s going to be my first pro knockout. It’s been a long time coming, but I think it’s coming.”

Jackson on being willing to go to the ground: “I’m not scared to go to the ground with anyone. If he wants to take the fight there, all power to him, I’ll be ready to go. I feel like he backs up a lot, so I’m going to be in his face and we’ll see how he handles that pressure.”

Jackson on possible facing Kevin Aguilar next: “If I had to fight (Aguilar) again, I would take the fight all day. It’s just really frustrating to lose and to be finished in the fight. So I definitely would want that back. But I’m looking at just trying to mature and go on to the next step and keep going up. If it means fighting him, if I have to have one more fight to go to the UFC before, then I’m going to take the fight all day. If I get the call, then I get the call and I’ll be ready to go.”
