Jordan Heiderman Recounts Final Sequence That Scored 6-Point Win Over Brady

Atlanta, GA – PFL heavyweight Jordan Heiderman made his promotional debut at PFL 5 against Patrick Brady where he literally kicked his opponent into a verbal submission on Friday night.

“I wanted to come out starting a little faster than what I did, but he came out hard and I knew he was going to, but took a good blow to the leg and put him out,” Heiderman told reporters including Cageside Press at his post-fight scrum.

Heiderman (7-0) had planned to work his own leg kicks in the fight, but Brady fired them off as well catching Heiderman off-guard.

“He came out hard throwing some hard low leg kicks, and he called it in the right. He’s like ‘you can’t take too many more of those’ and he was right,” Heiderman told Cageside Press.

“So I knew I had to do something. My game plan was to kick as well, but he beat me out the gate. I’m a guy that kind of starts slow, and finishes strong. That’s where I shine and that’s what I did.”

Even when Brady went down, verbally submitting on the way to the canvas, Heiderman wasn’t completely sure that the fight would be stopped.

“I didn’t know he was going to tap like that. I was definitely ready to cover and start ground and pound or work for a submission,” he said.

Following the fight the respect for Brady was still there.

“I knew he was just a brute of a guy. I knew it was going to be a dogfight of a fight,” he said.

“I just got to sometimes bite down on my mouthpiece and go get the win.”
