XFE Cage Wars
Featured fighter: Elder Ramos
Our featured fighter for this newsletter is Pro MMA Fighter Elder Ramos from Virginia. We are pleased to announce that Elder will be making his XFE debut Dcembe 7th at Harrah’s Philadelphia agains New Jersey native Shedrick Goodridge. Elder started his MMA career in 2007 and even with a wife (Kaitlyn) and two young children (Joseph & Hailey) he continues to advance his professional record fghting on a regular basis.XFE: As a Pro MMA fighter from Virgina do you feel you have any obstacles fighting in other states?
Elder: I think anytime I go out of state it is hard because every promotion wants their fighters to sell tickets and I can’t always sell 100+ tickets as I would if it was a local fight. However I do have a very strong following and support in my community, gym, my friends, fans and family. They always bought tickets from me for my fights if they are coming or not, they do it because they love to support me and they know I have what it takes to make it to the top.
XFE: Having started your MMA career in 2007, what do you feel are the differences in the sport since you started?
Elder: I would say the big difference is that I see a lot more mma fighters turning pro’s to fast with very little cage experience. I have seen mma fighters chasing the money and not really looking at the big picture.
XFE: In your opinion what are the three most important things to a successful fight camp?
Elder: Having the support from my family, because if I don’t have them as my back bone I don’t have anything. Having a strong work ethic. Having a good game plan and staying with it in the cage. Having a strong team to break you down and build you back up during camp
XFE: To date, what fight has left the biggest impact on you as a Pro fighter?
Elder: I would say my fight vs Dave Daniecki at Shogun fights. After that fight I told myself I need to work on my bjj and drop to 170lbs because bigger guys like him will only hold me down during the fight and win by just doing so, like he did.
XFE: You are currently on a 4 fight winning streak, what is your fight prediction for your fight Dec 7th at XFE 31?
Elder: I have worked very hard, I’m a man on a mission. Right now all I want to do is get in there and follow my game plan and get another win. I believe that as long as I put the time in the gym I will win. I see myself winning the fight in the first rd by tko or k.o.
XFE: Where do you see your MMA career in 4 years?
Elder: I see myself fighting for Bellator or UFC.
XFE: Anything else you would like your fans to know about you?
Elder: I will deliver a great show for every fan who will come out and watch this event. Once again I have worked very hard and I have the skills, heart and power to finish my fight from standing or on the ground. I grew up in the worse city of Cali Colombia South America and I have worked since I was 8 years old, so hard work is nothing new to me. I work hard in and out the cage to make sure I bring my best into every fight. NO MAN FEARS TO DO WHAT HE KNOWS HOW TO DO.
Elder along with a full card of talented amatuer and professional fighters will be represented at XF 31December 7th at Harrah’s Philadelphia. For tickets contact Elder or visit our website at www.xfemma.com.
