APEX Profile: Derek Giroux

MMA News On Saturday, January 13th, Derek Giroux (0-0) will be making his MMA debut at APEX: Caged Inferno. The 29 year old lightweight hails from Capreal, Ontario, stands 5’10” and will be representing Yves Charette’s Team Shredder.

A Service Technician who enjoys hunting and fishing in his spare time, Giroux will be taking on Team Inferno’s Rory McDonnell in a lightweight undercard bout. Boasting skills in Sambo and Wrestling, he likes to work the ground and pound while still perfecting his stand up game in training.

Coming into this bout versus McDonnell, Giroux is looking to ‘repeat the 10 sec loss from McDonnell’s last fight’ and take him out early. Listing Georges St.Pierre has his favourite fighter, Giroux is looking to model his fight game after ‘Rush’, and run over his opponents as quickly as possible.
