We reached out to Jerome and asked him what winning this fight means to him:

MGetting the win on February 23rd is very important for me. I’m coming off two losses right now and I feel like in both of my losses I wasn’t necessarily beaten. I made mistakes in both fights which lead to losing. I learned so much as a martial artist suffering those two losses in the fashion that I did and I a ready to go show everybody the best version of myself yet. I like Gene a lot he is a very respectful guy, I look forward to stepping in the cage with him and putting on a show for Santa Fe.

We also talked to Gene and he gave us his thoughts about his last loss and his fight with Jerome:

This fight is real important keeps the fire burning in me. I’m bouncing back from my loss, they say they want to stand but we already know what they have in mind and what they’re expecting. I’ve made my adjustments and hope he’s ready for a war.
