    (Q&A now over)

    *****This is a Q&A for LFA Heavyweight, Jared Vanderaa! He will answer your questions LIVE on THURSDAY the 22nd of June at 7:00 PM EST. This thread will open when it is time. Remember to keep it clean & respectful otherwise dubs or bans will be handed out.*****



    Jared Vanderaa is one of the top Heavyweight prospects outside of the major organizations. He will next be competing for the vacant LFA Heavyweight title in the main event at LFA 15 on June 30th against Richard Odoms.​

    [​IMG]
    Jared holds a 5-0 pro MMA record with a 4-3 amateur record. In all of Jared's 12 total fights, only 2 have gone to the judges scorecards. His pro victories have all come by finish(3 KO/TKOs & 2 Submissions). "The Mountain" is quite a fitting nickname for Jared, as he stands at 6'4" tall & has a very long reach of 83". Training alongside Dan Henderson, Sam Alvey, Tom Gallicchio & others at the famed Team Quest, Jared is hopeful he'll be able to catapult himself to the UFC with a big victory over Odoms.

    Best of luck next week! Do you think a highlight reel KO could get you to the UFC after this next fight?

    I do like watching other heavyweight fights to see where I stack up against them . And for my favorite fight I can't really say I have one.

    Do you have a preference on how you like to win? Any specific submissions or strikes for the KO? You can obviously do either as your record shows! :D

    Hello The Mountain,

    Is crushing your opponent's head between your hands like a watermelon illegal under the unified rules?

    And if not, is this how you plan to win? Thanks!

    Does being a 6'4" heavyweight fighter make you a shoe in for getting the ladies?
