After defeating Rémy Bussieres via unanimous decision in the main event at Summum MMA 2, a satisfied Jason Courchesne spoke to me about what gave him the advantage over Bussieres, why he accepts the lack of knees in amateur MMA despite it stopping him from going Wanderlei Silva on his opponents, what it feels like to be in the main event, and what’s next for him before he goes pro. (interview in french) (5:52, in 2 parts)
