After over two years in the Apex or Abu Dhabi, the UFC have finally returned to full capacity crowds for non-Pay-Per-View events. They kick off things with the always enthusiastic London, we have already seen some prospects shine and many more to come but one big standout story from the prelims came in the form of a comeback submission victory from Scotland’s own Paul Craig.
“BearJew’s” Stunning Submission
UFC London is currently underway and we have already seen performances from the likes of Mohamed Mokaev and Jack Shore, Paul Craig was up to continue the prelims against a strong veteran in Nikita Krylov. Craig came out with instant pressure, secured an ankle pick, and ended up on his back, after about a minute of being in control, Krylov tried a get up where he stacked “BearJew” and landed some big shots, amidst these shots fans were roaring in fear as it looked as though Craig’s consciousness was exiting the Scotsman’s body.
After a bit of bouncing in and out of Craig’s guard, Krylov paused in motion and “BearJew” whipped his legs up and secured a terrifyingly tight triangle in what has become trademark fashion for Craig. Krylov tapped shortly there-after. Craig has opened up many options for himself in the ever-exciting Light-Heavyweight division and topped off his performance with a callout of number five ranked Anthony Smith. “BearJew” has proved that despite the controversy he is always dangerous and if eyes were not on him before they are definitely on him now.
