URCC Featherweight Shaqueme Rock ®️ Facebook Page

[랭크5=고현 기자] Shaqueme "Shem' Rock has established himself as one of the most promising fighters in the South East Asian scene.

Starting off his career with four straight submission victories while keeping his undefeated record intact, the Liverpool native now living and fighting out of Monarchy MMA in Malaysia has grabbed the attention of many around the region.

In his last fight at WOTD 3 in Taipei, Rock faced off with UFC veteran Rocky Lee. Considered to be the biggest test of his young career, he choked out the Taiwanese MMA legend at the end of the first round without much resistance leading up to the finish.

"Shem” will now move on to his next challenge which will take place in Manila against Danilo Sarmiento Jr at URCC 77: Raw Fury on April 27.

In this interview, Rock spoke with John Hyon Ko of Kumite TV about his upcoming promotional debut for URCC, getting signed to MTK Global management, eyeing Mark Striegl, adding many aspects to his training camp, beef with Victor Goergsen and more.

Notable excerpts from the interview:


John Hyon Ko: "[Mark Striegl] is an interesting fight. He is a big name and you are looking to take big names so it's a good fight."

Shaqueme Rock: "Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he's shit. But you look at his record and he hasn't fought the best guys and when he has, they put him in tough positions and some of them submitted him and ended up beating him."

John Hyon Ko: "You got Danilo Sarimento [at URCC 77]. He is undefeated just like you. What are your thoughts on the challenges he poses for you?"

Shaqueme Rock: "I'm definitely not looking past him. I've watched his fights. I think everyone believes that this is an easy fight for me and I'm just going to run through him. But I think he possesses more of a threat than people think."

John Hyon Ko: "What type of performance are you expecting out of yourself at URCC 77?"

Shaqueme Rock: "Honestly, I have a game plan and I try to stick to it but at the same time I'm ready to go five rounds even though we're only fighting for three. I'm ready to throw the game plan out the window and stand and bang if I have to."
