    Etim, Sass, Paul Kelly, Paddy Pimblett and a few more probably that I can't think of. Not great on the whole.

    Kevin Lee was raised in Detroit
    Daron Cruickshank, not from Detroit, but claims it as well
    Myles Jury, Hazel Park, close enough

    Others from the state of MI, just not my city.

    I don't feel any sense of pride because someone from my zipcode achieved something.

    That's lowbrow mouth-breather mentality.

    Lee Murray is from the part of SE London where I live but he's maybe not as well known for his fights in the cage as for his fight outside oh and being part of a huge robbery.

    He lives about 10 mins from my house and although retired I know Paddy Holohan really well, hes been in my house many times. (Just for the record I don't know Conor personally altough I have met him a few times, hes a good guy when the cameras are off)
