Jared Cannonier fighting career
Jared probably has the most exciting journey among any fighter on the roster. He started as a heavyweight who used to compete at light-heavyweight as well. After a series of losses in 2018, he finally decided to move down to the middleweight, and he’s been raising hell at this division. Jared rose up to the ranking pretty quickly, and he earned himself a number one contender to fight against Robert Whittaker which he unfortunately lost. Jared has not fought anyone since then but he is positive that he will chase his title dream before the end of his career. He is booked to face Kelvin Gastelum next, and he won’t leave anything to the judges in this one.
Cannonier opened about this transition, and he thinks this was the right thing to do, he said “Anybody who knows me knows I should not have been in the UFC heavyweight division. I’m not a heavyweight, I was never a heavyweight. Even at light heavyweight, those guys are f—g huge. I’ve never seen myself as a big guy, I’ve never carried myself as a big guy, I don’t move around like a big guy. I never thought of myself as a big guy. I’ve always thought of myself as a guy who could fight. And I could fight any- and everybody.”
