Mitch Gagnon Makes Early Case For Submission Of The Night

Mitch Gagnon gave the Canadian fans something to cheer for early, as he submitted Walel Watson in just 69 seconds Saturday night at UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort. The bout was part of the Facebook prelim portion of the card.

Gagnon (9-2) lost to Bryan Caraway earlier this year, but bounced back in impressive fashion vs. Watson (9-5). Gagnon is now 7-1 in his last eight overall bouts.

“I feel great,” said Gagnon, who owns nine career submission wins. “I knew I belonged in here. My last bout, I didn’t come out on top. It feels great.”

Gagnon countered a Superman punch by Watson and dropped him with a left. From there, it was all over, as Gagnon worked to lock in the choke and secure the victory.
