Jeremy Skinner came away from Polaris 12 with a solid performance in getting the finish over Eoghan O’Flanagan. He explained that his preparation for this fight felt better than his previous match and that he’s feeling great now that he’s injury-free.
He had an interesting choice of callout after the match though, ADCC veteran Ross Nicholls. Nicholls is highly accomplished and is a regular in many fighters’ post-match demands but the reason behind Skinner’s choice of opponent was what made the prospect of this fight so intriguing.
Skinner pointed out the his coach, Lachlan Giles, had recently beaten Nicholls in a tough decision. He feels as though he’s able to submit the Englishman instead. Regardless of the reason, Jeremy Skinner v Ross Nicholls is a match we’d all love to see.
