PRO MMA exclusive interview: Efrain Escudero

Efrain Escudero is the 155 lbs. winner of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter season 8 reality TV show. He defeated Phillipe Nover in the TUF 8 Finale last December to win a coveted six-figure contract with the UFC.

Escudero was originally scheduled to fight Jeremy Stephens back in April but had to pull out due to a rib injury. Now healed up, Escudero is ready to make his second Octagon appearance on Sept. 19, 2009 against the very technical Cole Miller who has finished his last two opponents.

PRO MMA (promma.info) spoke with the 23-year-old undefeated 11-0 Mexican lightweight on Tuesday about his upcoming bout with Miller, how he thinks he matches up with Magrino, and how he’s feeling after the rib injury. He also told us “his hips don’t lie” but we weren’t sure what that meant.

Ultimate Fighters duke it out with Shane Primm defeating Mike Dolce at Music City MMA

Music City MMA held their “Rock & Havoc” show Saturday night, July 18, in Nashville, Tenn. at the Municipal Auditorium. Headlining the event was The Ultimate Fighter season 8 contestant and local fighter made big Shane Primm taking on The Ultimate Fighter season 7 veteran Mike Dolce.

Primm in only his fourth pro fight and his first bout at middleweight took out the much more experienced Dolce with a first round TKO. PRO MMA(promma.info) spoke to Shane after the bout to get his thoughts on how things went down.

“The fight actually went a little different than I expected. I thought Dolce was going to come out early and press me, cut down the distance, and try to brawl given his reach disadvantage,” said Primm. “He instead played on the outside which fit well into my game and my natural advantages.”
