Hopefully Third Time’s The Charm For Janes
Hopefully third time’s the charm for Ryan Janes as he is set to meet Keith “Sha Bang Bang” Berish at
UFC Fight Night 102.
Janes a Zugec Ultimate Martial Arts product and former BFL Middleweight champion has had a rough road since signing with the UFC in mid 2016. His first bout at UFC Vancouver was scrapped when his opponent Adam Hunter was flagged by USADA. He was then lined up to meet Dongi Yang and UFC Manila but that feel through when the whole card was cancelled a couple weeks out before fight time. Currently on a 7 fight winning streak with 7 submissions out of his 8 wins Janes is on track to make a big splash in UFC’s Middleweight division.
Berish, undefeated at 5-0 is a proven finishers like his opponent Janes finishing 4 of his tussles between the bells including a submission win over TUF/UFC veteran Pat Walsh. Berish made his Octagon debut all the way in 2014 at the TUF 19 finale against Robert Drysdale but the bout was ruled a No Contest when Drysdale failed a post fight drug test. He was scheduled to return in May 2016 against Jake Collier but pulled out due to injury. Now after 2 years on the shelf he is set to make a triumphant return against Ryan Janes.
UFC Fight Night 102 goes down December 9th from the Times Union Center in Albany, New York. The card in headlined by a Heavyweight fight between Derrick Lewis and Shamil Abdurahimov.
