Chase Sherman dissects Josh Parisian, plans to ‘crash’ him at UFC Fight Night 214

0

LAS VEGAS — While UFC heavyweight Chase Sherman has a lot of respect for his next opponent, he thinks there will be a point of no return.

Sherman (16-10 MMA, 4-9 UFC) will look to pick up back-to-back wins when he takes on Josh Parisian at UFC Fight Night 214. The event takes place at the UFC Apex and streams on ESPN+.

After diligent cinematic study, Sherman thinks he’s figured out Parisien (15-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC). While acknowledging that his opponent has what it takes internally, “The Vanilla Gorilla” believes that the Parisian does not have the skill to hang on with him in the octagon.

“When I go to watch a movie about fighters, I usually try to take two key types of things and break them down,” Sherman told reporters, including MMA Junkie, during Wednesday’s media day. “What can we learn from this person? Will it be their body that will break first or will it be their will? And I think when you look at Josh Parisian and his fights, the cat, I don’t think he particularly came to the UFC with any skill. I think he came to the UFC because he has a lot of heart and he’s very tough.

“So looking at this, looking at the fight footage, I know his willpower is going to exceed what his body can handle. So I’m going to go out there and systematically take my time and separate this guy, and inflict as much damage as possible where it has no choice but to crumble, you know what I mean? It doesn’t matter how hard you want it if your body can only take so much.
