Back from the dead, Jesse “The Ghost” Gross, came out of a year long hiatus from his professional MMA career, and won a decisive fight at the Score Fighting Series 6 in Sarnia Friday night.
Facing a tough competitor in Seiji Sugiman-Marangos, who entered the fight with a 5-1 professional record, Gross controlled the fight from start to finish knocking Sugiman-Marango to the ground three times.
The fight was stopped with only one second remaining in the second round, with Gross throwing furious elbows and punches at Sugiman-Marango who Gross had under complete control on the ground.
After losing his last two bouts in controversial referee stoppages, Gross devoted himself to dropping a weight class to 145 lbs, a move he said was important.
“I’m fighting at 145 now. This is probably where I should have been the whole time,” Gross said following his Score Fighting Series win.
The win, which lifts Gross to 7-4 professionally, looks as though it could be a new beginning for Gross, something he is aware of, “Welcome to The Ghost 2.0,” Gross exclaimed in his post fight interview.
