Jesse “Body Snatcher” Ronson Plans to Use Score FS 5 to Launch Him into the Limelight


Following only his second career loss in April of last year, lightweight up and comer Jesse “Body Snatcher” Ronson made some changes in his training routine and now is enjoying a five-fight winning streak.

“I had a lot of personal problems before that fight,” said Ronson. “I was definitely mentally not in it. My diet was all wrong and when I cut, I cut too much weight and my recovery was even worse. I just had nothing in the tank.

“After that fight was over, I got myself a new wrestling coach and started taking my jiu-jitsu seriously. When I train now, I train for my strengths. I keep an open mind for (my opponents’) strengths, but I train my strengths and to impose my will on them.”

Ronson told MMAWeekly.com that not only has he noticed a difference in his fights, but his whole attitude when it comes to the sport.

“Now I’m mentally in it and my heart is in it, and it made me realize this is what I want to do with all those changes,” he said. “Now that I’ve got the proper coaching and people in my life, everything’s coming together. Everything has just been increasing; my skill, my speed, my power, my drive; everything’s just right and things are on the up and up.”

Ronson will look to continue his winning ways against Alex Ricci in a co-main event bout at Score Fighting Series 5 on Saturday night in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, in a fight that could produce the night’s biggest fireworks.

“I’ve been looking for a guy who was looking to stand and trade, and Ricci will probably stand and trade, but I know for a fact that he’s been working his wrestling and his jiu-jitsu,” said Ronson. “With that, I know he’s going to try to take me down, so I’ll get to showcase my sprawl ability and hopefully get to showcase my top game if he does do that.

“If (he wants to stand and trade), he’s just going to get knocked out. My speed and power – I can’t even compare it to what it was the last time, because it just gets so much better – I’m crushing pads in training now.”

With his manager, UFC fighter Chris Clements, currently busy with his own career, Ronson is looking to use this fight to open any eyes that can help him get to the next level.

“Chris is open to me looking for new management to get to that next step, so with this fight I’ll be 11-2 and finish it in impressive fashion – which I plan to do – hopefully some big organizations notice me and I can take the step up,” said Ronson.

Win or lose, Ronson feels his fight with Ricci on Aug. 25 will provide the kind of excitement that can’t help but get him noticed.

“People think it’s a candidate for Fight of the Year, but with two strikers like this – if he wants to stand and bang – there’s not a chance with his power and my power that it’s going three rounds,’ he said. “If anything, it’s going to be a candidate for Knockout of the Year because this fight is going to end like that.”
