UFC Fighter Kyle Daukaus (9-0)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Kyle Daukaus is an intriguing UFC newcomer with a lot of potential. Daukaus is undefeated as a pro fighter, with all but one his fights ending in submission victories. Five of his submission wins are from D’Arce chokes which are super impressive.

This isn’t the first time Daukaus has been on the radar of the UFC. He fought on season three of “Dana White’s Contender Series” and dominated his opponent. He didn’t get the contract that night but White said he would be in the UFC at some point.

Well, he got the call.

Daukaus is coming off a second round submission over Nolan Norwood that took place in Feburary of this year.

Daukaus steps in on 10 days notice, replacing Ian Heinisch to fight a streaking Brendan Allen who has won six straight. A win over Allen this weekend would put Daukaus on the UFC middleweight map.

When asked what to expect from his fight Daukaus said,

“Expect to be surprised. I am taking the fight on short notice, but I’ve been training hard for a long time. I am ready to get in there and compete”.

Daukaus makes his UFC debut on the main card of UFC on ESPN 12: Poirier vs. Hooker.
