[Prospect of the Day] The brightest inside-the-distance victories in the career of the British lightweight Jai Herbert
The editorial team of the 'Harcord' project is launching a new heading, “The Prospect of the Day”, dedicated to prospective fighters who are currently performing outside the world’s largest leagues, the UFC and Bellator, but already have the opportunity to join the ranks of these giants.
We make our debut with a small treatise about the career of the promising 30-year-old British lightweight Jai Herbert, who is a rather well-known fighter in his homeland and has already managed to gain considerable popularity thanks to his spectacular fight style. The Briton prefers stand-up fighting, using the precise skills of Muay Thai and Boxing. The fighter confidently feels himself both in close and long distance.
Like many British fighters, Herbert began his career from an amateur career, during which, despite an unsuccessful debut, he managed to score five victories with suffering only one defeat. The transition to the pro took place in 2015, and since then the athlete had nine fights, scoring confident victories in eight of them. The only defeat that dimmed his impressive record was a crushing knockout loss in December 2016, which is most likely the reason why the fighter still performs at home.
It is worth to note that since that moment, Erbert managed to rebound and win four confident victories in a row, only one of which reached the decision of the judges. He is currently performing under the auspices of the prestigious British promotion of ‘Cage Warriors’. It was this promotion where the popular Conor McGregor managed to capture the belt in two weight classes, after which he signed with the UFC. As part of the organization, the fighter leads a series of three victories in a row, which will allow him to soon to fight for the title.
We would like to bring to your attention the highlight video of the best inside-the-distance victories performed by the British striker, which will allow you to rightfully assess his potential.
