There’s no denying which welterweight Jeremiah Wells finished out his 2018 at a far better location than that started it.
After his only career defeat to shut his 20 17, Wells had been able to rebound in 2018 with a three-fight winning streak, capturing the CES welterweight name in the approach.
“I kind of idea they attracted me as a stepping stone (against Gary Balletto Jr. at April in CES 49), but I had been a really slippery stepping stone,” Wells told MMAWeekly.com. “Subsequently they brought me in against Manley, also I beat him, and they then gave me a title shot, that was surprising, and I beat him.
“Last year was pretty ideal for me. I thought I’d get more fights before this year was finished, but it had been hard to get me a competition. I was expecting that I ’d get a telephone from the UFC, but I harbor ’t gotten you yet, therefore I continue working hard. ”
If it comes to his performances in his three wins in 2018, Wells is pleased with how he did, also feels it’SA nod to how he is developing as a fighter.
“I feel as if I did lovely,” said Wells. “I’m-learning each struggle as I go. I am aware I’m-learning new things about myself and everything I’m capable of doing. I understand every struggle is going to get harder and harder.
My training camp and the teachers I’ve got are pushing me along with my team, also I’m getting better and better as each fight comes. I’m-learning about myself. These competitor I’m training to get aren’t even revealing anything which I harbor ’t seen before. ”
On Friday at Hartford, Connecticut,” Wells (6-1-1) can look to procure his first title defense if he faces Vinicius de Jesus (7-2) in the 170-pound championship chief event of CES 55.
“I must say I don’t even realize that much about himpersonally, but I understand he’s ’s black belt (at jiujitsu ) and does boxing,”” Wells said of p Jesus. “He also comes forwards a whole great deal.
“I presume that which I’ve must do would be myself and mix it up. It’therefore definitely going to be a higher amount of strikes or over and down, and see that which he can take and what he can hand out. I understand I can take a volume of punches and I understand I can provide them with. I train five rounds every day. I’m accustomed to going 25 minutes, and I love it, therefore we’ll see whether he can go on it. ”
While Wells would really like to acquire the chance to take his career to the next level, he’therefore definitely going to concentrate on having the very best performances he can, and seeing what’s of these afterwards.
“I’m not going to get my hopes up and state after this battle that the UFC or even ONE or PFL, I’m going to accept it struggle by struggle and give the fans what they need,” said Wells. “I want to go out with a bang. I’m excited to get any particular one night to release the beast in me.
“I’ll keep giving all I got and after this struggle the UFC will see me and say that they need me on the second card. ”
