One to Watch on The Contender Series wk. 8: William Knight

William “Knightmare” Knight (4-0) steps into The Contender Series spotlight this week with his eyes fixed on another knockout.  The Light Heavyweight hailing from Hartford, Connecticut has a streak for the spectacular, with all four wins finished by KO or TKO. 

Knight started his MMA career as an amateur and beat up on all the young guns, going 8 and 1 with 7 finishes.  He moved up to the professional ranks and found similar success so far, with three round one knockouts. 

Knight started out as a small heavyweight, standing only 5’10.  After his first pro bout, he moved down to 205 where he still finds a significant height and reach disadvantage.  However his squatty body and big punching power let him venture into the pocket where he finds supreme success.

The cornrowed killer aims to get a fifth victory versus Swedish bruiser Herdem Alcabak (5-0) and a UFC contract in tow.
