There aren't many fighters in New England that have the experience that Jesse "The Viking" Erickson (11-8) has within the locked cage doors of New England MMA. Erickson has logged 19 professional fights and 6 amateur fights over the past 10+ years (all but 2 of those fights have occurred under the New England Fights banner). He recently captured another first round finish (all 11 of his victories have been 1st round stoppages) over former student Matt Denning at NEF 47: The Battle of L/A and is currently on a 2 fight win-streak. "The Viking" now steps up on 2 weeks notice to take on Jay Bakanowski (4-3) at Combat FC 1 in Wilmington, Mass on June 17th.
Erickson stopped by The Room to talk with us about his recent victory and his upcoming short-notice fight against Bakanowski. Check out the full interview below.
