UFC lightweight fighter and former Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting (WXC) Lightweight champion Justin Jaynes (16-7) is so full of confidence ahead of his UFC Vegas 30 clash against Charles Rosa (13-5), that he is willing to bet his entire $25K fight purse on himself.

Jaynes and Rosa are slated to face each other on the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs Volkov. scheduled on 26th June at the UFC Apex facility in Enterprise, Nevada.

While Rosa is a regular in the UFC since October 2014, Jaynes made his debut inside the Octagon in June last year at UFC Vegas 3, marking a first round win via technical knockout.

However since then, the “Guitar Hero” has been on a rough patch in the UFC, losing three back to back fights, against Gavin Tucker and Gabriel Benítez at UFC Vegas 6 and UFC Vegas 16 respectively, as well as in his latest appearance in the cage against Devonte Smith at UFC Vegas 18.

“As soon as the betting line comes out between Justin Jaynes and Charles Rosa, I’m putting my entire fight contract on myself, and my coaches are doing that as well. I’m betting close to 25K that I’m winning my fight because that’s how much I believe in myself,” Jaynes said in the interview.

“This is all in for me, and if I lose this fight, I do not get paid and my coaches do not get paid either. And that won’t be as bad as losing my job of being in the UFC,” the 31-year-old added.

Other than his high confidence ahead of the fight, it’s a must-win situation for Jaynes this Saturday so he can secure his future career in the UFC, and when asked about it, the American did not shy away from admitting it.

 My career is on the line in this fight,” he went on, “Charles’s career is on the line in this fight; he’s coming off of a loss as well. I’ve been an underdog four times in a row, and if Charles thinks I’m just going to roll over, then he will be sadly mistaken because I’m bringing the heat.”

I’m going to be on weight, I’m going to be in shape, and I’m going to smash Charles Rosa come June 26th,” Jaynes acknowledged.
