Brandon Pfannensteil is looking to keep his streak alive at VFC 37
When Brandon Pfannenstiel steps into the VFC cage on April 13th, he will be walking in and udefeated professional fighter, and he plans on walking out that way too. In his way of that goal is the hard charging Jordan Eggli.
On paper this fight is pretty hard to call. On one hand Brandon is undefeated as a professional but Jordan has more fights on his pro resume. Brandon will be the first one to admit that experience helps in a fight, but he thinks they each have a different type of experience, and in the end, his experience gives him an edge.
"Experience is key, and he's fought some f-----g tough guys. He definitely has more experience than me. He's a game opponent, every time I see him he goes out there and he's looking to fight."
Although Brandon readily admits Jordan has had more professional fights than he's had, he believes it's his VFC experience that makes up for that an ends up giving him an edge in that department, giving him home field advantage.
"VFC is my house. He's the one who hasn't been under the bright lights and if front of a big crowd like I have here."
And while he believes his VFC experience weighs a little heavier than the amount of fights, he's under no illusion it will be a walk in the park. He's expecting a tough fight, but he thinks his overall game will give him the advantage when he locks up with the former wrestler.
"I'm a more well-rounded fighter in every aspect. I don't see him being better than me in anything."
It's obvious that Brandon is confident that this will be a tough fight, but in the end, he feels he's the one walking out the victor. He's also excited about how they match up. Often, when two fighters who tend to end their fights on the ground match up, it cancels out and it turns into a stand up war. This would suit him fine, but he doesn't think it will happen.
"This fight could go to a decision, but I think I have some dynamite in my hands. I'm willing to stand and bang and trade shots and he's gonna be trying to grapple me the whole time."
It's clear that Brandon plans on walking out of the fight the same way he walked in, undefeated. If he leaves the VFC cage undefeated that will put him at 4-0. At that point a lot of fighters start talking about getting a number one contender fight or maybe even a title shot. When asked what he would like to see in his future if he makes it past Jordan, he was very specific.
"I want to fight Anthony Guterriez. I want that fight!"
There a lot of people out there who talk a lot but don't say much. It's clear that Brandon Pfannensteil isn't that type of person. When asked a question, he will give you a direct and concise answer. It's clear that he plans on winning April 13th, and it's clear that he plans on calling out Anthony Guterriez. We'll have to come out to VFC 37 to see if he gets the chance.
