LAS VEGAS – Despite earning a hard-fought win on Dana White’s Contender Series 44, Jonny Parsons expected to walk away with a UFC contract. In the featured bout Tuesday night, Parsons (8-2) defeated Solomon Renfro by split decision in a fight in which he overcame an early barrage to get his hand raised. It’s been a long journey for the 30-year-old, who knew his performance was enough to impress Dana White. “Honestly, I’m not surprised,” Parsons said during the DWCS 44 post-fight news conference. “This is where I belong.” He continued, “I thought I put on an exciting fight, the kind of fight that Dana wants to see, and I feel like I got the good reaction out of him and the things he said when he told me I earned a contract, I knew I gave him what he was looking for.” Although Parsons thought all three judges should have awarded him the win, the split decision call somehow assured him that he was the victor.
