It’s been a roller coaster six months for Dethrone fighter John Salter (9-3). Since his last MMA fight in April, after defeating Fred Weaver in dominate fashion back home in Alabama, Salter finally returns to the cage Friday Night against Jaime Jara (34-14) at Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, CA.
Being a fighter with the accolades of John Salter sometimes makes life difficult when securing a fight…these past few months have seen a few fighters decline or pull out of fights for unknown reasons.
Salter a recently promoted black belt, was finally able to draw a formidable opponent in veteran Jaime Jara. Jara who brings experience with 48 professional fights with toughness and a balance attack….will look to pull off the upset.
Fighting for only the second time in 16 months, the training was grueling and patience were tested, Salter did what he does best, never complained and always put his faith first.
