Yager vs. Parks Wiki Update Wiki

The third bout to air on the pay per view portion of MMA Fight Pit: Genesis featured Jamie "The Chosyn 1" Yager taking on "Slick" Willie Parks. Yager, a former Ultimate Fighter reality show contestant, entered the bout with a 3-2 record and a 1-fight win streak. Parks came into the bout undefeated at 4-0.

Parks came out recklessly throwing huge bombs, connecting on Yager yet also leaving himself wide open to counters. Yager was able to threaten Parks enough to force the Jackson's product to clinch up and go for a takedown, slamming the taller Yager to the ground. Parks unloaded with some big ground and pound, though Yager defended effectively and began pushing off the wall to improve his position. Parks maintained top position and slowly positioned himself to go for an arm triangle submission. Yager was never in trouble and the round ended in favor of "Slick" Willie.

Round two saw Parks dive in for a quick takedown yet left his neck exposed to a Yager guillotine choke. Yager tightened the hold as the pair were pressed against the fence on the ground. Parks hesitated for a moment until realizing he was stuck, tapping out to give the upset victory to Yager.

The official end came at 0:21 into the second round due to a guillotine choke. Speaking to Karyn Bryant in the post-fight interview, Yager commented, "This dudes going to come in, shoot in, the heads going to be right there, snatch that sh*t up... he came in with a right hand, a fast right hand, that woke me up... I'm not slouch off my back... I was able to find a couple elbows, I knew I hurt him and could feel him breathing hard... If you look at the review online, everyone says that Yager is a 100% striker, but I'm out here to tell you that I'm well-rounded, that's two submissions in a row... this is probably my last fight at 185, 170 here we come."
