Jared Rosholt, UFC vet Jake Rosholt’s brother, makes pro MMA debut on Feb. 26

Jared Rosholt is set to follow in his brother’s footsteps.

The younger sibling of ex-UFC middleweight Jake Rosholt makes his professional debut next Saturday, Feb. 26, against fellow headliner Dee Burchfield at “Cage Fight Champions presents: Art of War Cage Fights.”

The event takes place at Hutchins Memorial Auditorium in Ponca, Okla., a short drive from the brothers’ alma mater, Oklahoma State University.

A runner-up in the 2010 NCAA Championships, Jared Rosholt was signed this past July by Team Takedown boss Ted Ehrhardt, who helped his older brother make the transition from standout amateur wrestler to professional fighter.

Jared, though, has quite a bit of size on his older brother.

“He’s a pretty good-sized heavyweight,” Ehrhardt told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). “He’s around 265 (pounds) when he’s walking. He’ll end up probably around 280, 285 pounds, and he’s real fast. He runs like a 4.7 (40-yeard-dash). I don’t know, but I’ve heard he’s bench-pressing around 700 pounds. He’s big, he’s strong, and he’s fast.”
