Correction: Jay will be fighting Donnie Liles, not Gideon Ray.

Jay Hieron is gearing up for the IFL Grand Prix next Saturday. He’s ready to fight. Period. Three times his opponent has changed. Now Jay is set to take on Donnie Liles. Jay’s been training like an absolute maniac. Sparring with fellow 170lb stud Mike Pyle, Anacondas teammate Chris Horodecki (who also fights in the Grand Prix), Karo Parisyan, and Josh Haynes.

After worries that a contractual situation would complicate Jay’s participation in the Grand Prix and numerous opponents dropping out, now we’re 6 days from fight time. Jay is looking great. He tells us he’s ready to scrap in Chicago.
The Grand Prix marks a departure from the IFL’s team format and will allow the fighters to exhibit themselves as individuals rather than part of a team. You’ll get to see Jay’s dynamic personality on display in his choice of shorts and mouthpiece.
