The last time Nick Roehrick stepped in the cage was almost two years ago. However, it was a UFC cage and on Saturday night he makes his MMA return in Tunica, MS for V3Fights.
Roehrick currently has a record of 7-1 and fights out of the prestigious gym, Ludwig Martial Arts/Evolution Fight Team in Denver, Colorado with some of the best fighters in the world. However, for this fight, he did his camp with Cobra Kai in the High Desert California.
He got started in MMA by helping his friend and NASCAR racer, Jeffrey Earnhardt with his amateur debut. They were friends, and Roehrick had wrestled in college, so he took him to the gym to help him out and the more he got around the sport, the more he thought “I can do this.”
Roehrick has already fought in the UFC and is looking to get back there and a win on Saturday could be the beginning of his comeback.
“My experience with the UFC was good! Competing at that level was the best part. As long as I stay ready, I know other opportunities will present themselves,” states Roehrick.
When asked about his fight and opponent on Saturday night, here is what he had to say:
“I’m not really thinking about my opponent right now. Opponents change all the time and the only thing I can control is myself. I’m very confident wherever the fight goes. This fight is more about getting me in there and shaking off the rust. It’s been a while since I’ve competed, but I have been in the gym, so I’m excited to see what’s created once we are in there. I want to thank V3 for all their work and looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night!”
