SFC Exclusive Interview: Jerome "Pistol" Andrews
The SFC has seen plenty of new fighters as of late, which is obviously great for business. We're going to be sitting down with a man who just recently made in debut inside the octagon Jerome Andrews.
The newest SFC Heavyweight is also the newest member of the LCA fight team. We're going to sit down with Mr. Andrews and discuss his debut and family history, among other things.
So relax and enjoy my exclusive interview with "The Pistol".
Q1: Congratulations on winning your debut match against Gage Bodine. How are you feeling?
"It's a moment I'll never forget that's for sure. Bodine is a tremendous fighter and has the heart and passion to be a fighter in this league a long time. With that said, I'm just paving my own path."
Q2: This was a high quality showdown. Is there anything you saw from the tape that you need to improve on?
"Most definitely my ground game. I'm not ashamed to admit it is my weakest part of my game and any real fighter will spot that immediately. Throughout my years of fighting grappling has always been my least favorite due to my hand game always on point."
Q3: Mr. Andrews, you're the younger cousin of Santa Monica Sharks star cornerback Jordan Andrews. Did Jordan give you any advice on how to handle yourself on the big stage?
"Jordan. [Smiles] He's taught me pretty much everything I need to know about the Lights and the Cameras. He just says to bring the Action every night."
Q4: Growing up in the Andrews household, I'm sure was a very competitive atmosphere between you guys. Was there ever a sense of jealousy between any of you?
"Of course. I'd have to say it's what got us all to where we are this day. The "jealousy" you speak of we ain't see as jealousy, it was an inner bond that we had that we would stop at nothing to make the man next to us better. We've all looked out for each other through our come up."
Q5: Shortly after announcing yourself as an official SFC fighter, you joined the fight team known as Lights Camera Action. Why did you decide on joining this team, rather than siding with a group full of champions, like the Apex Predators?
"You see the guys in LCA has close ties with my cousin Jordan and as I grew around them through little get togethers, it really felt like the best fit for me. Not the fact that I was close with the guys on the team even though that had a part in my decision, it's just their energy, their vibe. What I get from them is it's all about winning and with winning comes losing and they've taught me to learn how to handle losing if I'd want to be a winner."
How would you grade Jerome Andrews' debut fight?
Q6: What do you think separates you from other fighters in the Heavyweight division? You obviously want to be the champ someday, so what is it about you that will make that happen?
"This might sound corny but being the only child makes it kinda easy for me to want to be the best. Then meeting my cousins when I moved to the states opened up the competitive side of me I never knew I had. I've always wanted to be recognized for something I've done and to be blessed with my athleticism, I feel holding the championship means more to me than "I've worked my entire life for this." "
Q7: Do you have any final words for the rest of the SFC?
"... Stay tuned."
Thank you for your time, Mr. Andrews. Good luck here in the SFC. And give Jordan a shout for me.
"Thank you for having me and most definitely!"
