Julian Erosa Interview (1:52)

To kick off this week’s episode, we’re talking with UFC Vegas 47’s Julian Erosa. Erosa discusses his tendency to turn up the pressure and break fighters. During his recent run in the UFC, where he’s gone 3-1, he’s beaten multiple opponents, by putting them on their back foot and tiring them out. He also shares whether he thinks that’s a viable strategy when it comes to this weekend. Plus, Erosa talks about why this run in the UFC has been so successful when his previous go-rounds were less so. And of course, he’s breaking down his fight this weekend.
