UFC 260: Jamie Mullarkey Looking to Make Up for Lost Time

0

Las Vegas, NV — After UFC 260, Australia’s Jamie Mullarkey has a little breathing room at long last.

The 26-year old claimed his first win in the UFC, opening up the main card with a 46-second knockout of Khama Worthy. The win snapped a two-fight skid, in a fight that saw his back against the wall. All thanks to a left hook.

“It’s my best punch. My left hook’s probably my best punch,” said Mullarkey (13-4) following the fight. Mullarkey and his team were actually anticipating what happened in the bout, for the short while it lasted.

“I was expecting that counter to come real fast. Throwing the first punch is dangerous with Khama,” he observed. “He can catch a lot of people on that counter-strike. So thankfully, the first shot, drawing that reaction out of him, then banging the left hook, that was part of the plan.”

Mullarkey didn’t have any callouts lined up following UFC 260. “No names. I’ll fight anyone. Stereotypical thing to say, but I will literally fight anyone,” he said. But after two straight decision losses, he wants to build on this first win. “Hopefully, I would like to get back on as soon as possible. I’ve got some lost time to make up for. I’ve got to eat, I’ve got to get paid.”
