    He just submitted one of the best featherweight grapplers ( yeah, this one who outgrappled Rani Yahya) after rocking him on the feet. He showed some great takedown defence, he escaped every single Niiinimaki's attempt of doing damage or subs.
    Can't wait for this guy to fight again!

    He's a very promising up and comer and had a great performance after stepping up with only a couple of weeks notice.

    Getting awarded a Plat account for posting nudes.
    He definitely earned himself a spot on the Jones/Gus II card.

    A star in the making no doubt. Like he said at the press conference: "I've always thought Niinimaki is a great fighter who is going to be in the top 10. It's just a shame he had to fight me" Kid just radiates confidence.

    Really exciting prospect. I thought Niinimaki would be too much for him at this stage of his career. Hilarious post fight interview as well.
