On week one of Dana White’s Contender Series the 2020 version, Jerome “The Renegade” Rivera squares of with Luis Rodriguez. The Santa Fe native tells me about his trip to Las Vegas to shoot the Contender Series commercial. “The Renegade” also talks to me about how his preparation for Rodriguez has gone & where his advantages lie. The 25-year-old is ready to show off what he’s been working on the last seven months, including balancing his emotions a bit more. I ask how he maintains his positive outlook and how this martial arts journey got started. Plus the interview ends with some more big news from Jerome.
