Fresh off his main event win at the Entrec Centre, local MMA fighter Spencer Jebb has another big victory under his belt.
He earned a unanimous decision against Ultimate Fighter competitor Matt DesRoches at the second World Series of Fighting Canada event at the Edmonton Expo Centre.
Known for his quick finishes, Jebb says he’d been looking forward to a fight going the distance.
“My whole career I was kind of waiting for that one fight that made me go all three rounds and all fifteen minutes and I finally got it. Matt was a really tough guy and it was good to get that test on a big stage and to get that test to know that I can go three rounds of hard fighting too.”
Jebb says they traded punches in the first round, and he was able to get a couple of take downs in the second.
DesRoches was able to hurt him a bit in the third, but the Grande Prairie product always seemed to be a step ahead.
“I think the biggest difference was my cardio, actually. Especially in the third round I could tell that he was probably a lot more tired than he was; he was kind of flat-footed the whole fight, but in the last round I was still moving around and utilizing my footwork a lot better.”
Jebb isn’t sure what’s next for him in his career, but says he’s looking at doing some training in Las Vegas.
He’s expected to be on the next Xcessive Force card in Grande Prairie this fall, after his submission win at the Entrec Centre in April.
