GLENDALE, Calif. – UFC on FX 1 bantamweight Jared Papazian got a call from the UFC and was asked to fight. His reaction was classic, but nearly scared the life out of his mother because it was so loud and dramatic. “Mom, they called!” he yelled once he got the call to fight at UFC on FX 1.
Mom can breathe a sigh of relief now. Papazian signed a four-fight deal with Zuffa, the parent company of the UFC, and readies to face Mike Easton in Nashville on Jan. 20.
In this exclusive interview, Papazian tells MMAWeekly.com about getting the call up to the big leagues and what he’s doing to prepare for what will be his UFC debut.
