MMA Junkie Reports:
– 13-3-0 MMA/ Strikeforce Debut
– 4 Fight Win Streak
– Notable Wins: Hayato “Mach” Sakurai, Yuya Shirai, Andre Galvao
UFC and DREAM veteran Jason High signs a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce, and is expected to make his debut with the promotion in the coming months.
Jason High is currently holding a four-fight win streak, including wins over Rudy Bears and Japanese MMA legend, Hayato ‘Mach’ Sakurai at DREAM Dynamite!! 2o1o.
High made it to the 2009 DREAM welterweight tournament finals after beating current DEEP champion, Yuri Shirai and Andre Galvao in the quarterfinals and semifinals. Unfortunately, he was on the wrong end of high kick thrown by Mariusz Zaromiskis, knocking him out cold shortly after the two minute mark in the opening round.
High then was signed by the UFC and met Charlie Brenneman at UFC Fight Night 21. Brenneman out-wrestled High for three rounds, earning the unanimous decision victory. He was surprisingly released from the promotion following the loss. High has since won all four fights since his release.
