Pro MMA Now exclusive interview with Jeremy Pender

Jeremy Pender will be facing BJ Ferguson in the main event of this weekend's Hardrock MMA event.

As I stated in an interview with BJ Ferguson that I just posted, MMA fans in an around the Shepherdsville, Ky area have more to choose from this weekend than just the UFC. Hardrock MMA is putting on a massive fight card with eighteen fights capped off by a 135 pound matchup between area standouts Jeremy Pender and BJ Ferguson. I had the opportunity to correspond with both Pender and Ferguson before their fights. Just like I said in my interview with BJ, take some time to learn a little bit more about both these guys, and if you’re in the area make sure to catch the fight. It’s going to be a banger.

Saturday night PROMMA.INFO’s Brian Furby attended “Hardrock MMA 14” in Danville, Ky. at the Danville National Guard Armory. I kept up with the action throughout the event. Featuring thirteen fights (11 amateur and two pro), Hardrock delivered some exciting finishes and a lot of action, with only two fights making it out of the first round.

Here is my play-by-play and event commentary.

Pro fighter Rob Mooney is serving as tonight’s referee. As I mentioned at the Wicktagon show last month, Mooney has the distinction of being one of the most experienced referees in the country, with the number of bouts he has refereed in the thousands.

PRO MMA’s Southeastern Amateur Spotlight: Lorenz Larkin

On May 2nd Lorenz Larkin stepped in the cage at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee to take on Wendall Mitchell at “Gameness Fighting Championship 3.”  Quickly, Larkin started landing leg kicks and right hands to his opponent and it wasn’t long before he landed a big right hand that put Mitchell flat out on the canvas.  This was an all too familiar sight for Larkin who has finished 8 out of his 9 opponents via (T)KO. 

PRO MMA (promma.info) recently spoke with Larkin, the Ring of Rage Heavyweight Champion, to get his thoughts on several topics including the fight at “GFC 3,” his striking background, his upcoming fight on May 23rd for Hardrock MMA, and when he plans to turn professional.
