The first of our co-presentations with Whoa! TV is “UFC 131: Ballistic,” an exclusive behind the scenes look at one of the U.K.’s most talented prospects, Jason “Shotgun” Young.

Young fought his way up the featherweight ranks in the U.K., running his record to 8-3. He steps into the Octagon at UFC 131 coming off back-to-back victories. Young wasn’t originally slated for the card, but caught his big break when Rani Yahya had to back out of his fight with No. 7 ranked Dustin Poirier.

Young has been working hard to prepare for the opportunity, and allowed Whoa! TV to take an extensive look at just how he got ready for the fight of his life.
