Welcome to the Sports Warriors Jeremy “Bear” Redfern

 

The Sports Warriors:

Your Native American as are we what’s your tribe, and for people that don’t know the “Bear” tell the fans who you are.

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

I am from a tribe in Cali called Pala also known as Pala Band of Mission Indians

The Sports Warriors:

Your Native American as are we and we put our family on our back do you feel the same as a native fighter since we don’t have too many in the mma world that you have that weight?

 

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

I am a native fighter with the heart of a warrior and determination and mind of a champion. I am a father of 4 and a very hard worker. At first I really did feel that there was a certain amount of pressure to win and represent for us as native people but as time went on I realized that I wasn’t carrying the weight of winning for our native people I realized that they are actually carrying me… To work harder to do the best I can in anything I do and to be proud of what I have done so far. They carry me by motivating me to want to win and want to be proud of who I am and where I come from and who my people are.

 

The Sports Warriors:

You’ve asked on your facebook about Native American companies or anything to support you because you want to help out, why make a plea like that?

 

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

the reason I asked that is because I would like to help out others in repping their gear,logo or company whatever the case may be because in my opinion if you don’t give back when success is in your life failure will soon follow.

 

The Sports Warriors:

You have a fight coming up Nov. 6, in San Diego for Epic Fighting finally stepping outside of the barn. What intrigued you about this match up?

 

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

The only thing that intrigued me about this fight is simply that my opponent doesn’t look to be hit nor does he like to keep it standing. I don’t really over think or analyze fights or fighters I just see it as another man in there to hurt me and I will not let that happen.

 

The Sports Warriors:

As a fighter at this stage where you have held title from XFC what would this win mean for you and your career?

 

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

If I earn this win it would mean a lot to me, my family and my native people letting them all know anything is possible if you put your heart and mind to it. As for my career it would bring me one step closer to my next goal of going pro as an MMA fighter and it would let the 205lb class know that I mean business.

 

The Sports Warriors:

What is the expectations of the “Bear” Friday night Nov.6th at Epic Fighting 29 against a very tough BJJ guy in Elijah Harris from 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu

 

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

You can expect to see me looking for the finish weather its standing or on the ground I feel comfortable and will be looking to land them elbows as always. As for my opponents jiu jitsu I’m not worried about it.  I am no slouch on the ground and I also have submission victories as well so it’s not an issue to me.

 

The Sports Warriors:

Thank you Jeremy for taking the time to sit down with us. Appreciate it and see you at Epic Fighting 29 Nov.6th at Four Points Sheraton in San Diego.

 

Jeremy “Bear” Redfern:

Big thanks to all of you for your time and for the questions it was an homer and very humbling  I hope I answered them ok I will not let you or the fans down this November 6th
