After the IFL ceased operations, however, Jay has had a rocky road finding fights, despite being the reigning IFL champion when it folded and not having lost a fight since winning that title in December 2007.
Now he has signed with Strikeforce, and after a successful debut with that company in August, his next fight is likely to be on their January 30 card in Sunrise, Florida, near Miami.
In a lengthy interview, we spoke with Jay Hieron about all this and what is next for him. We discussed his views on why a fight between him and Nick Diaz fell through, and when he believes they may finally meet. We spoke about how he has managed to persevere in the face of so many challenges in his career, including mistakes he made early on. We discussed his development from being a wrestler in mixed martial arts to becoming a complete fighter, and much more.
Jay Hieron believes that 2010 will be his year, and you can hear just why on this edition of No Holds Barred.
