KENT, Wash. – Jason High has found a new home in Strikeforce, but “The Kansas City Bandit’s” focus remains the same: to keep winning fights impressively in order to move up the ranks.
On Friday night, High (14-3 MMA, 1-0 SF) made his promotional debut at Strikeforce Challengers 16 with a dominant three-round decision victory over King of the Cage champion Quinn Mulhern (15-2 MMA, 0-1 SF) at Kent, Wash.’s ShoWare Center.
Although the wrestling-heavy fight drew the ire of some in the arena, High was largely satisfied with his Showtime-televised performance and knew he fought to his strengths.
“Now that some time has gone by, I realize that I fought a smart fight and did what I came to do, but when I was in there, I was kind of disappointed,” High told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following his victory. “I wanted to stand with him a bit, but kind of subconsciously after the first round, I took him down a few times, and he wasn’t threatening with submissions.”
