I had a brief chance to catch up with Jordan Watson before his fight the other night. As you can see his teeth are still very much in place.
Saturday was the second time I had seen him fight. I’m impressed, it’s a shame we’re not going to see him in the Contender, I think he would have surprised a lot of people.
One of the things I often forget is how young he is… he’s got a lot more time to develop (physically and technically) which is scary. He’s got an amazing opportunity ahead, albeit challenging. Which Buakaw is going to show up to the fight is anyone’s guess, but Buakaw is still Buakaw.
Hopefully I can get a few minutes with the White Lotus, but I understand his manager is particularly protective of him. We’ll see what we can do.They’re going to be putting up tickets in the next week or so. I’ll be sure to let you know when I can find out anything.
