Fans And Official UFC Twitter Account Roast Fighter For Performance You Have To See To Believe

UFC light heavyweight William Knight had an impressive resume when he entered the company in 2020.

Knight boasted an 8-1 record and his knockout of Cody Brundage on Dana White’s Contender Series earned him an official UFC contract.

Since that point, however, things have gone a bit south for Knight.

He lost his UFC debut to Jung Da-Un in April of 2021. Knight then rebounded with consecutive victories over Fabio Cherant and Alonzo Menifield.

But that’s when things got rough. Knight moved up to heavyweight to fight Maxim Grishin in February of 2022 and lost via decision. He then lost his second heavyweight bout via TKO against Devin Clark in April.

The Connecticut native then took nearly a year off before dropping back down to light heavyweight and returning to the cage against 15-6 Marcin Prachnio on Saturday night at UFC Vegas 69 (nice).

Despite the time off and the drop back down to his more natural weight class, the result was not any better.

Knight dropped the bout via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the contest 30-27. But that only begins to tell the tale of what happened.

Knight landed just eight significant strikes over the entirety of the 15 minute fight. None of those strikes were to the head of Prachnio.

His corner implored him to try to finish the fight between the second and third round.

What followed was a third round where he landed just four total strikes and threw just 13. Even the UFC’s official Twitter page couldn’t help but wonder what Knight was doing out there.

Some even alleged Knight to have tries to former coach James Krause, who was banned from the company for wagering on fights.

But most were just astonished by what they had just witnessed.

Let’s just hope Knight doesn’t have Twitter. He’s had a rough enough evening as is.
