Get Brad Katona back in the UFC. I can’t believe him & the UFC didn’t agree on a contract in the 1st place. He beat Bryce Mitchell by submission, won The Ultimate Fighter 27, won the BRAVE CF BW Title, just defended it against Gamzat Magomedov (IMMAF 2017 World Champion)

He’s one of the best 135 fighters in the world right now and deserves a UFC contract, even though he’s probably making more money where he’s at.

He also beat Kyler Phillips on tuf. Another really good wjn

Damn good for Katona but ******* downed for Naurdiev, I like his style a lot but Ig it happens for people to get caught from time to time. He shouldn't have been so aggressive though, hence why he got caught, should've taken his time and used the fact that he had the 10 extra minutes to out strike Bandel instead of fishing for a finish
