Stéphane Pelletier Rising Star 2 post-fight interview

With a shot at Ringside‘s vacant Bantamweight (135 lbs) title on the line, Stéphane Pelletier (4-1) stepped up Saturday night at Rising Star 2 with a 1st round arm-bar victory. I spoke to him backstage after the fight, where we discussed how he locked in the hold, what the title shot means for his future, the role his family plays in his career, and how his tryouts for the Ultimate Fighter went last Monday.
