Chris Rojas said there have been some harsh words between him and Ray “Ace” Ostrander. There is a clear understanding between them, and Rojas says he has a set game plan. “When is comes to January 26th, he’s gonna know I am the better striker, grappler, and wrestler. I’m just going to be better everywhere.”
Rojas is training at elevation and Ostrander is training at sea level. Could the title bout come down to breathing capabilities?
Cole Griego knew there was an opening for the featherweight title and asked Rojas if he wanted to take the fight. After watching a few of Ostrander’s fights, Rojas said, “Ya, I’ll fight that little b*tch.” Rojas said he was just fooling around, but his comment got back to Ostrander, who responded, “I am gonna make it the fight of his life and make him work for every inch he wants to earn, which will not be much.”
Rojas says he will not take the rivalry into the ring. Emotional fighting is not smart. He is expecting Ostrander to bring his emotions into the hexagon giving Rojas the upper hand. Rojas said that even if Ostrander is calm and composed, he will have a bad night. Then, it will all be left in the hexagon.
These two fighters are putting it all on the line for the Featherweight Title at Real MMA XVI, on Jan. 26, 2017.
