Humanizing Athletes: MMA Fighter Aaron Jeffery’s Favorite Things

MMA Fighter Aaron Jeffery (9-2)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on planet earth, and — as human beings — have an extraordinarily wide-ranging set of interests. Who are they as people? What makes them tick? What does each athlete have in common with the fans that cheer them on? This series fills in those blanks and gets to the heart of the matter while exploring what makes your favorite fighters who they are.

Aaron Jeffery is one of the best prospects out of Canada, if not the best. He has fought for promotions such as LFA, CFFC, KOTC, SFT, and of course Dana White’s Contender Series.

In his nine wins, he has eight finishes – six via TKO and two via submission. The only two losses on his resume are Brendan Allen and Sean Brady, both of whom are in the UFC. Both of those losses fueled a fire as Jeffery went on multiple fight winning streaks afterward.

Jeffery is currently on a three-fight winning streak with three finishes. His most recent win came at LFA 93 last October. He finished Andre Petroski in the second round with a nasty knee, followed by punches.

Jeffery returns to action at CFFC 93, where he fights Colin Huckbody in the main event for the middleweight title. A win over Huckbody could definitely get him a UFC contract, something he wants and honestly…. deserves.

When asked what we should expect from his fight, Jeffery said, “Another win.”
