    Rhys McKee whom Dana White called a top UK prospect got his ass whipped by someone not even in the top 30. John "The White Mike Tyson" Philips was 1-5 in the UFC and was recently released.

    Context is important. Don’t be a dick. Don’t be a detractor.

    John Philips is tailor made for BKFC where I expect to see him soon

    I wouldn't watch John Philips in a bar fight much less a BKFC bout

    They released him after Khamzat and Morono losses?!

    Terrible management, should have never signed him in the first place if they were just gonna throw him to the wolves. I hope he comes back one day just to say fuck you Dana.

    Any source on releases ?

    He would’ve fought better guys, if it wasn’t because the entire top 20 was ducking him.

    Fucking baddy Khamzat fought Rhys Mckee, destroyed him and didn't even let the guy throw 1 strike before finishing him.

    He should have performed better.

    He's fought absolutely nobody at WW, but just look how far hype can get you.

    He's fought nobody in the top 30 lol, but he's gonna get a crack at a top 3?

    clown show

    Phillips is fine for a WW fighter making his debut. McKee/Chimaev was a fight made in like less than 2 weeks. He destroyed both guys in less than 2 weeks and only took 1 strike.

    The way he destroyed Meerschaert sealed the deal for me. Anyone doubting Khamzat's legitimacy at this point is a bitter goof. Is he good enough for top 5? We'll see soon. I don't know why people are complaining about new prospects.

    Is it really a duck? what was Khamzat ranked? What’s in it for them to take him on?

    MW fighter making his debut.*

    McKee was put together quickly, cuz he's basically a career lightweight, so it's another debut level opponent. Point us, he hasn't cut his teeth on the large bubble of mid range talent like everyone does
