Now that 2020 is at last at the rear of us, we can begin seeking forward to 2021 and all the wonderful fights that are getting established up for the initial quarter of the year.
Incorporating to that list is Australian light heavyweight prospect Jimmy Crute vs. wildstyle practitioner Johnny Walker. According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, the two will deal with off on March 27th at a UFC Battle Night in a locale to be established.
Crute is 12-1 (4-1 UFC) with all his UFC wins coming by means of knockout or submission. He went a fantastic 2- in 2020 and was bundled in the UFC’s Greatest of 2020 Recap show as a person of the promotion’s Increasing Stars of the 12 months (for fighters below 25 many years aged). With Robert Whittaker receiving up there in age, we hope the UFC is likely to devote the 12 months pushing Crute as the following good Australian hope and we’re here for it 100%.
Two yrs ago, Johnny Walker was in a related placement to where Crute is now: young, remarkable, tons of potential, a bunch of fantastic wins. But again to back again losses in 2019 and 2020 in addition a ongoing tendency to put his experience in the way of opponent’s strikes have a lot of people today wanting to know no matter whether he has the willpower and tactical intelligence to continue to be in the UFC top rated 10 rankings for extended.
He did pull off a first rate knockout around Ryan Spann in his previous struggle, nevertheless.
This a person has #12 Crute seeking to trade spaces with #9 Walker and is quite substantially assured to be entertaining.
