William Knight and Aleksa Camur will meet in a light heavyweight bout on the preliminary card of UFC 253 on Fight Island on September 26th. A fairly even match with an opportunity for both to make a big impact.
Knight is 8-1 and a real surprise in this division. Coming out of Dana White’s Contender Series with a first-round stoppage of Cody Brundage on September 1st, Knight has legitimate knockout power with two third round knockout wins. With a 100% knockout rate, we should expect nothing but power shots from Saudi Arabia Knight since that’s what he does best.
For Camur, this is a real chance to impress the UFC brass. At 6-0, a win over a strong Knight can put him in the spotlight. He uses spinning techniques and unique kicks, and is undefeated in six professional MMA fights. Camur is a new addition in the UFC with only one fight in the promotion, a unanimous decision win over Justin Ledet. With a style that can endear him to the fans and a powerful stand up game, look for this fight to end before a decision.
