The always tough Jason Knight continued his winning ways inside of the Octagon earlier tonight (Sat., Jan. 28, 2017) at UFC on FOX 23 live on FOX from inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, opposite established featherweight veteran Alex Caceres. It was Knight’s most high-profile opportunity in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) thus far and the 24-year-old scrapper made the best out of his opportunity.
After having to deal with the quick footwork and unorthodox striking techniques of Caceres to begin the bout, Knight found a groove and a window to close the gap on the feet and grab a hold of “Bruce Leeroy.” In Round 2, “The Kid” was able to take Caceres’ back, work for the rear-naked choke finish and cap off the most memorable performance of his career.

With this win, Knight extends his current win streak to three. While Caceres isn’t the most dangerous opponent in the 145-pound weight class, Knight ran through him pretty quickly. Knight continues to prove he’s one of the toughest outs in the division and a dark horse to crack the top 15 in 2017.
