Light heavyweight contender Jimmy Crute looked better than ever earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 17, 2020) at UFC Fight Island 6 live on ESPN+ from inside Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., when he flattened prospect Modestas Bukauskas via first-round knockout (punches).
Crute and Bukauskas are both known for their first-round finishing ability so fight fans knew this one wouldn’t last long. While Bukauskas ate a few good punches early Crute’s power showed halfway through the round when he landed a massive right hand. Bukauskas went to get back to his feet and Crute leveled him again with another right followed by a left. Bukauskas fell against the cage and the referee stepped in.

With this performance, Crute wins his second-straight fight at 205 pounds and improves his overall UFC record to 4-1, losing only to Misha Cirkunov via submission. Crute continues to improve every time he steps inside of the cage and looks to be a true contender on the rise entering 2021.
