While most of us were busy watching Diaz vs. Daley last Saturday, Potato Nation Fight Team captain Jeff Watts (aka ‘Karmaatemycat‘) was actually fighting, in an amateur bout at King of the Cage: Outkasts, held at Lake of the Torches Casino in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. It’s impressive enough that our man Karma now has cage experience at a well-respected regional event like KOTC. The Shinya Aoki grappling pants and the 80-second submission victory? That’s just icing on the cake, homey.
As with his last fight, Karma proves himself to be an adept wrestler, needing all of six seconds to put his opponent on the mat. From there, it’s a methodical progression to full mount, and a textbook rear-naked choke when his opponent rolls to escape. The fight aftermath is just as entertaining. Watch as Jeff shouts out his team, apologizes to the judges (LOL!), gets hug-snubbed by his opponent (BOOOO!), gives love to “CagePotatoMMA!” then asks the audience “What the fuck is up?!” He even got the announcer to shout out our site. Epic victory, brother — we’re proud of you.
