Love him or hate him, one thing is for sure… You are GOING to pay attention every time you hear the name “Jesse Parker!”
Parker is a former V3Fights’ amateur flyweight champion and has been training since 2008. He made his professional debut back in January and won in dominant fashion against a much larger opponent. He splits his time training with Team Havoc MMA in Oakland, TN with Jason Aldridge and Prize Fight MMA/Boxing in Olive Branch, MS with Torian Whitlow.
On April 29 Parker will try to make history when he fights to become V3’s first ever professional flyweight champion. Standing in his way will be his toughest opponent to date when he faces grappling expert, Jeremiah Cullum. However, Parker doesn’t seemed to worried about that.
“I heard that Jeremiah was a two time Grapplers Quest world champion, which doesn’t mean s*!# to me because I’m first and foremost a jiu-jitsu artist. I’ve trained under the best, Chip Baldine. Just know that if it goes to the ground, that is my world!” states Parker.
But if the fight stays on the feet, Parker says he is okay with that too.
“I’ve been working on my standup with Torian Whitlow for about three years now and I don’t have any problem going out there and keeping the fight on the feet and knocking him out. “
This bout has “Fight of the Year” written all over it, and because Jesse Parker is involved, this is one that you cannot miss!!!!!! Get your tickets now!
