Getting To Know... Jay Furness


Recommended Posts

YourMMA.tv editor, dessert lover and 6-2 professional mixed martial artist, Jay Furness, is featured in this week's 'Getting To Know...' article.


A few of his answers:


What car do you drive: A Peugeot 206 that people keep thinking is a some sort of target practice for moron drivers. Not really a petrol head, it serves my purpose.

Day job as well as MMA: Writer and editor of the mighty fine YourMMA.tv. I do a bit of commentary for some great shows too. Part-time webcam stripper.

Which football team do you support: Leeds United.

Sports you enjoy apart from MMA:*I'm pretty sport mad to be fair, but I don't have time to indulge in others as much as I'd like to. I played a lot of rugby growing up, so that's the one I'd be with if I wasn't fighting. Well, I probably would still be fighting but just getting mauled by a massive blind-side flanker for standing on his toes and raking him.

Next fight: Taking on 5-2 Serbian kickboxing champion Dragan Pesic at UCFC 4 in Batley, inside the famous Batley Variety Club a.k.a. ‘The Frontier.’

How will you win: Ground and pound, probably.

Person you'd most like to meet: I'm no sycophant; I don't yearn to meet anyone really. There are some people out there I think I could have great conversations with - probably a four-way conversation with Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Karl Pilkington and myself because that would be hilarious, or someone who'd have amazing stories like a soldier from the Vietnam war, real heroes, great thinkers and high achievers.
