Khaos Williams thinks he place the welterweight division on notice.
In the co-primary party of UFC Vegas 14, Williams was getting on Abdul Razak Alhassan in a battle quite a few assumed would arrive down to who would land first. Nicely, it was Williams who got the knockout just 30 seconds into the struggle and pulled off the upset win once more.
For Williams, he is not surprised he was the underdog all over again as he has often been neglected in his career.
“They just did not know. I’m just receiving in the UFC, I have been executing this, I received Michigan powering me, seriously the overall mid-west. They noticed me arrive up, they know. That is why I explained the people’s champ for the reason that I got the persons behind me, for true,” Williams reported to MMANews. “I’m any person men and women like, they know that simply because this is the serious me I come from nothing at all, I acquired out of the mud. I have been at the bottom. There is a good deal of men and women who have been at the base who can relate to me. They just didn’t know that it is, now I’m really guaranteed they know.”
Now, because the acquire, regardless of Khaos Williams remaining 2- in the UFC with two knockouts in under 30 seconds, men and women are however doubting him. He has heard all the communicate of wait until finally he fights a wrestler or grappler, which Williams just cannot wait for.
The 26-calendar year-aged disclosed he in fact trains wrestling and jiu-jitsu much more than striking. Williams knows if has enough skill to stuff the takedown or scramble back to his toes, it will be a very good evening for him.
“Some people have been like ‘oh that was sloppy and blah blah’ and how I would do towards a excellent striker. Alright, y’all just saw what I did towards a fantastic striker, a knockout artist,” Williams spelled out. “Now, I am finding, ‘oh let us see him from a wrestler.’ I have been in there with D-1 wrestlers. We have D-1 wrestlers in the health and fitness center. I continue to get superior. If you can get me to the ground you will see some thing. I grapple a lot more than I strike since I know they are afraid of my hands and will consider to take me down. But, what occurs when that does not do the job?”
The hope for Khaos Williams is to get again in the Octagon quicker fairly than later on. He ideas on remaining in form in situation a single of the upcoming welterweight fights drop off.
“I’m always ready, this is God’s timing. If they contact me and it is hunting appropriate, then let us make a little something materialize,” Williams concluded. “I’m not heading out there at my greatest, I’m not marketing myself limited since I know my value. I know what I can do when I am at my very best.”
