Only five months into 2011 and Jared Rosholt (4-0) had already earned four victories in the year. Three of them occurred within two weeks, and then Rosholt disappeared from the MMA circuit for 14 months.
“I’ve been working on everything just trying to get better,” said Rosholt. “I did three fights in three weekends. It was great, but I didn’t get much experience as some of them went quick.”
While training, Rosholt tweaked his knee over the fall and decided to have it cleaned. While away, he has also made the offense of his hands a focus in training.
“We got a striking coach in and we wanted to work on my hands,” said Rosholt. “Naturally, as a wrestler, my hands aren’t my strong point and striking was what we needed to work on.”
Rosholt returns to take on Derrick Lewis (7-2 -1 NC), who in has won three of his last four fights.
Rosholt vs. Lewis takes place at LFC 13 on August 17.
