Former NFC champion and dr. Ludidi athlete Jarno Errens (Netherlands) has been called on short notice, to fight on the UFC Paris fight card on September 3rd. The former NFC featherweight champ took his last impressive victory over the Tajikistani Abdullaev (Brave/ NFC MMA), which put him in the spotlight, and didn’t stay unnoticed by the UFC Europe organisation.
Since we got him fit in and out of his previous fight, the team's convinced that Jarno is ready to take it up against the Frenchman on very short notice. - dr. Ludidi
Dr. Ludidi: "The team started preparing early for his previous fight to not only improve his fight game but also work on his overall health. Going through a fight camp puts a toll on the body and mind, especially in the last phase, during the intense weight cuts. It is not uncommon for athletes who compete in weight classes to drop about 10% of their body weight in 24 hours, Since we got him fit in and out of the fight, the team's convinced that Jarno is ready to take it up against the Frenchman, on very short notice, September the 3rd"
Jarno Errens: “Entering the UFC has been a dream of mine ever since I started my MMA career. As the first and only Dutch featherweight contender, and with Overeem leaving the UFC just last year, I want to take over the baton and put the Netherlands back on the map on this biggest MMA stage in the world.
Having said that, I’ve always got so much support from the German and Belgian supporters as well. My high skill level is mainly the result of all the matches that I fought on German soil. I’m thankful for that because that playground formed me as a fighter and I want to give something back to all those who contributed to that and my growth as an athlete, especially the fans.
I want to take over the baton and put the Netherlands back on the map on this biggest MMA stage in the world. - Jarno Errens
Don’t be misled though. My journey has only just begun. Entering the UFC means that an entirely new journey will start for me. I’ll eventually aim for becoming a top-ten and perhaps a top-five contender and who knows what more. But one step at a time. My first fight against the French Wiliam Gomis (10-2) will take place in a couple of days and that’s my main focus for now.”
Jarno Errens (65.8kg; 13-3-1) is fighting out of Heerlen, representing team Thriving and is currently signed under the international MMA promotion UFC.
