As one of North Carolina’s top lightweights, Jordan has been featured many times here at Pro MMA Now as part of “The Jordan Rinaldi Experiment” which detailed a portion of his career leading up this the opportunity he currently has with the UFC.
So I have been selected to participate in the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter Live. I have to fight March 9th live on FX to win a spot in the house. I am hoping that the people of Charlotte, and of North Carolina will be hoping and praying for me to fight well and bring home a win in that pivotal fight.�
To say the least, I am nervous. Among many other emotions, the most potent right now is nervousness. I am very excited for this incredible opportunity that I have been blessed with, God has given me more than I could have ever imagined. As most people know, this is a huge opportunity, and the show has produced many top contenders as well as many champions in its time. I look forward to taking full advantage of this opportunity, and I have been training harder than I ever knew that I could. Though I am very nervous, I am also very motivated. I am motivated by the naysayers that count out anyone that isn’t from a big gym like Jackson’s or AKA. I want to prove to the world that Charlotte can produce top tier talent, and it has!
Looking at the lineup of competition, I know that this season will be great. I am excited for the fact that it is a good group of fighters and when I prevail, it will look that much better for me.�
I thank everyone in the Charlotte and North Carolina area that have supported me in the past; the encouragement is greatly appreciated. I especially would like to thank Team ROC and all my teachers and training partners that have pushed me to my limits.
