Eryk Anders is still undefeated.
The Team Guardian powerhouse advanced to 2-0 with a dominant three-round win Saturday night for Southern Fight Championship in Montgomery, Ala.
“The goal is always to finish, but I train to fight three five-minute rounds, five five-minute rounds — whatever we’ve got to do to get the win. I train for that, but my opponent was very tough, he just kept coming, and I couldn’t get the finish,” says Anders, who notched a 40-second TKO win in his highly anticipated August pro debut.
Still, Anders is satisfied with his win — and 2-0 feels excellent.
“The goal is always to get the finish, but sometimes it’s just not possible,” Anders says. “I feel great. I’ve got two fights and two wins — that’s all I can ask for at the moment. I just can’t wait to get back in there.”
Anders would like to return to the cage at least once before the end of the year. But first up is the World Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi IBJJF Championship in Long Beach, Calif., in November.
“I just want to train and compete as much as possible,” Anders says with a smile.
