In an interview with BloodyElbow.com, middleweight fighter Ryan Janes discusses why he was surprised he got the call from UFC matchmakers, where he was when he got the call and who the first person he told was, his debut fight at UFC on FOX 21 in Vancouver on Aug. 27 against Adam Hunter, fighting in British Columbia (where he trains), his year-long layoff, the Canadian mixed martial arts scene, and much more. You can listen to the full interview above.
UFC on FOX 21 takes place live from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C., Canada on Aug. 27. The event is headlined by a pivotal welterweight matchup between former interim champion Carlos Condit and top grappler Demian Maia. Janes' fight against Hunter will be featured on one of the two preliminary cards, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass and then airs live on FOX.
