    (Q&A now over)

    *****This is a Q&A for UFC Featherweight, Jason Knight! He will answer your questions LIVE on MONDAY the 3rd of July at 3:00 PM EST. This thread will open when it is time. Remember to keep it clean & respectful otherwise dubs or bans will be handed out.*****



    Jason Knight is one of the top prospects in the UFC Featherweight division. Jason last fought at UFC 211 where he became the first man to finish Chas Skelly with strikes. He will next be competing at the stacked UFC 214 event in Anaheim, California on July 29th as he takes on the #3 ranked contender & former title challenger, Ricardo Lamas.​

    Jason holds a 20-2 pro MMA record. Of his 20 victories, only 4 have come by way of decision. It took 13 victories until he finally got one that went the distance. His finishes consist of 13 submissions & 3 KO/TKOs. Currently riding a 4 fight win streak, Jason next looks to earn the biggest victory of his career over Lamas thus catapulting him right into title contention. His notable wins include the likes of Chas Skelly, Dan Hooker, Alex Caceres, Jim Alers, Thiago Moises & Musa Khamanaev.

    are you nervous for this big step up in competition after fighting an unranked opponent last time out?

    Thanks for taking the time out Jason! How's this camp been for you given it's a bit short notice and how does it feel to get the chance at a top 5 guy so early in your UFC career?

    What are some flaws in Lamas' game that you plan on exploiting?

    Hi @Jason Knight ,

    What choons do you play in a fight camp?

    I have a fight coming up (I'm an amateur fighter from England, 7-0 record, near 6ft and 200lbs) and I'm hating training because all my choons are shit. Nothing is getting me going, ya get me?

    Good luck in your fight. I'll be rooting for you

    Does being on a stacked card like 214 just add extra motivation to put on a good show?

    Does being on a stacked card piss you off as its harder to get a bonus?
