Can Young Gun Mein Apprehend the Kansas City Bandit?
On August 26th, Jordan Mein will take a big step up in competition at Rumble in the Cage 40 in Taber, Alberta. According to Lee Mein, Jordan’s father and the head of RITC, Mein (17-6) will take on the ‘Kansas City Bandit’ Jason High.
Jason High (9-3), who trains out of Antonio McKee’s Bodyshop in California, was on quite a roll as a fighter before losing in spectacular fashion to Marius Zaromskis in the 2009 DREAM Welterweight Grand Prix Finals. High then fought once for the UFC this year where he was released after losing to Charlie Brenneman. Now High hopes to rebound against Lethbridge’s young gun.
Mein has been on quite a roll in the last few years. He has gone 9-1 since early 2008 with wins over Ryan Machan, Victor Bachman (pictured), and Andrew Buckland. Last week, Mein defeated George Belanger at Pure FC 5. Could a victory over the tough KC Bandit get Mein to the UFC?
