Kevin Casey vs. Bubba Bush
A pair of regional champions meet up in the UFC’s middleweight division, as Kevin Casey faces Bubba Bush.
Casey (8-3) is the Resurrection Fighting Alliance champion and an alum of The Ultimate Fighter, while Bush (8-2) represents Jackson-Winkeljohn and won gold in Legacy FC.
Round 1: Just learned that Muhammad Ali is Casey’s father-in-law to Casey, interesting. Bush comes right after Casey, landing a nice shot, but it’s Casey who floors him with a combo. Casey pounces on the grounded Bush and is in top position, shifting to advance his position and continue with the ground-and-pound. Perfectly timed shot from Casey was the big blow, as he’s now knocked out Bush with a series of short elbows. Just rapid-fire shots from Casey and this one is all over.
