Windsor's TJ Laramie is training and getting ready to fight his way into the win column later this year. The 22-year old will square up against 32-year old Damon Jackson of Oklahoma at UFC Fight Night 191.
The match is set for May 1st date at a yet disclosed location. "Having a date this far out and Tj already having his weight down as we were expecting an earlier date and entering without any nagging injuries is a step in the right direction". said Rino Belcastro, Laramie's coach.
Jackson is 18-4-1 and coming off a loss to Ilia Topuria last December. Belcastro knows Laramie's opponent is game "but we really are just in the process of enjoying the training sessions and working specifically on Tj himself".
Laramie is looking to rebound from a tough loss to Darrick Minner in his UFC debut last September. "We’ll think more specifically on the opponent closer to. Being this far out and in this sport so much can change from now till then so it’s all about bringing out the best version of Tj Laramie May 1st and putting it all together on Fight night". said Belcastro.
