Damon Jackson sat down with All Access MMA’s James Lynch to discuss his recent win at UFC Vegas 39, his vacation in Mexico, and going to a Justin Bieber concert.
Damon Jackson (19-4-1) recaps his unanimous decision victory over Charles Rosa (14-6) at UFC Fight Night on Oct. 9. The event took place in Las Vegas and was headlined by a strawweight matchup between Marina Rodriguez and Mackenzie Dern.
The win over Rosa was the second for Jackson in his last three outings in the UFC. He is moving up in the featherweight division.
“I honestly thought my wrestling was gonna trump his jiu-jitsu off of his back and his grappling,” Jackson said. “His style is usually heavy grappling off his back game so he doesn’t really wrestle a whole lot. I thought that I would defiantly get him to the ground and I could control him.”
He is on vacation right now for a week in Mexico, but he has already announced to his manager that when he gets back he wants to line up his next fight right away.
