I’d like to start this off by thanking you for taking the time to speak to me today, how’s training going?
“Training is going very well, I feel I’m the best I’ve ever been and definitely stronger than I have been in the past.”
The last we saw you in the cage was back in June at CW123 vs Rory Evans 4-3-0, With the amount of time that has passed, I’m sure you’ve watched that fight back religiously since. What was the biggest lesson learned from that war back in June?
“The Rory Evans fight was a disaster, a huge opportunity but the big weight cut and only 5 days notice were just too much. Learned a lot from the experience and dealing with the pressure of fighting on a big show. With a full camp, I’d give a much better account of myself and will definitely be pressing for a rematch after a couple wins.”
Being graceful in defeat in the fight game is something to be commended in this day and age, but the hunger for retribution still burns fiercely in Jimmy, that much is sure. A win over Jack Eglin, a successful Cage Warrior in his own right, could be the first step to the rematch to the “Big Show” at the iconic York Hall indeed. Here’s a look back at the bout between the two back at CW123.
October 9th, the MMA world is treated to what’s sure to be one for the highlight reel, when you take on Jack Eglin 1-0-0 at CWSE26. Being close to the same organisation must make this bout a very interesting one for you. What do you make of Jack?
“I’m very excited about this fight, Jack’s a killer and this is going to be a proper tear up. We’re approaching this the same way we do every fight, study our opponent, work out how we beat them and implement that strategy. It won’t be easy, but I’ve got the tools to beat Jack.”
Cage Warriors Academy South East has brought fight fans some immense battles over the years. Conner Hayes 6-0-0 vs Steve Riformato 0-1-0, Corey McKenna 6-1-0 vs Annette Österberg 0-1-0. Just a few of the many wars to be fought in the South East. What fight stands out for you the most for CWSE?
“Nik Bagley vs Jack Eglin was a great fight and definitely stands out to me, as I’ve been rewatching it a fair amount lately. Two high-level guys from great gyms in a close fight.”
The respect shown to Eglin will be left backstage come October 9th at Chapter Hall in Essex, when these two veterans of the academy collide in the cage, definitely a battle to be put on the calendar.
Last but not least Do you have a message for the fans that will be in attendance on October 9th? And anyone you’d like to give a shout out to?
“To the fans that will be in attendance, October 9th is a stacked card and definitely not one to miss. It’s going to be an all-out war, but it’s only going to end with my hand raised.”
“I’d like to give a shout-out to my sponsors VXS Gym Wear, YRHEALTHUK, Street Kings, Jim Hurden Osteopathy and Dean Kirk Nutrition for getting me down to 135lb.”
