Though coming off a loss, Khama Worthy has emerged as one of the faces to watch closely in the UFC’s overcrowded lightweight division.
Worthy has fought some great competition in his pro MMA career and his third pro fight was actually against Paul Felder. Worthy has scary power that sometimes looks wild, because he goes for the finish whenever it presents itself, but is super effective. Khama is a very exciting fighter that is always in the fight as only three of his finishes are actually in the first round.
Khama’s two wins in the UFC are against great opponents and his finish of Devonte Smith in the first round of his UFC debut is just the perfect showcase of that ‘scary power’ that I was talking about. But worthy has also showed off how well rounded he is with his 3rd round submission of grappling ace, Luis Pena.
Worthy matches up well against his UFC 260 opponent Jamie Mullarkey (who is featured on next page) as both fighters have a similar rangy build, and both have similar amounts of finishes. This is sure to be a good fight that UFC fans should not miss.
