Willie John EE wins the inaugural Predator Flyweight Championship. It was a quick but very exciting fight between Willie John EE of Sucuri MMA  and Kushal Vyas who came all the way from India.

Willie started by throwing several leg kicks but Kushal seemed to be OK as he was trying to look for an opening to land his knockout punch.
The boxer from India, however, didn’t have a chance to set up his knockout blow as he was taken down when he moved closer hoping to land a solid right cross. Willie nicely taken down Kushal and mounted him. Kushahal was on a full guard while Willie trying to soften him up with some ground and pound and while working his way through side control. Kuhsal was able to momentarily get away from the ground and pound as Willie lost the mount position, however, after throwing 3 kicks to the leg he was able to get a knee-on-a belly position that leads him to full mount. Then the rest was history!   Willie John EE wins the first every Predator Flyweight belt by an arm bar!

The future is looking good for this young talented and enthusiastic fighter from Lucena, Quezon. I’m sure the title defense is going to be as exciting as this first flyweight championship fight, or maybe even more exciting! Let’s all wait and see.
