Chase Sherman: 'I'm Fighting For My F**king Job' | Ep. 39 — Ragin' MMA Podcast

Show Notes Below:

Chase Sherman: “I’m really working on a few things outside of fighting to bring in some secondary income in between fights. You never really know when you’re going to get to fight again. Last year I fought four times and this year I’ve only fought once. It’s not because we haven’t been asking either.”

Kajan Johnson: “I’ve never experienced that. Every time I’ve asked for a fight, I’ve gotten it.”

Chase Sherman: “I’ve gotten unfavourable match-ups the last couple fights and we were hoping to get a bounce-back fight.”

Chase Sherman: “I need to get some momentum back. I was fighting for a top 15 spot and now I’m fighting for my f–king job. It’s funny how quickly that can change.” 

Chase Sherman: “I just try to be myself. If you like me, you like me. If you don’t, you don’t. I’m a clown and I like to f–k around and not take things too seriously. That is my whole philosophy to be authentic because people can pick up on that.” 

Chase Sherman: “I posted some sort of wrestling video about how fake that stuff is and [Colby Covington] commented on how I got knocked out. I said some s–t about him and it just went back-and-forth. It is what it is. I don’t really care.”

Chase Sherman: “Colby Covington just does it because it gets people talking. He is actually a pretty decent guy.”

Kajan Johnson: “I don’t know how decent he can be saying some of the things he says. If you’re saying it and you don’t believe it, it almost makes you a worse person because you’re saying it just to get ahead. It makes you slimier.”
