Get Nikita Krylov back in the UFC right now. Mick Maynard and Sean Shelby, stop reading MiddleEasy for a little bit or watching our new Rizn-cast and hit up Krylov somewhere in the Russian mist.
Krylov went 6-3 in the UFC’s lightweight division then was unceremoniously dropped from his contract. Why?
Today in Russian at Fight Nights Global, Nikita Krylov bodied former Bellator champion Emanuel Newton in under a minute. Violent knees, killer instinct from a six foot three 25 year old 205 pound dude.
Doesn’t that sound and look like someone the UFC should still have on their roster of like 1,000 or so fighetrs?
