Pretty cool. That’s Kyle’s brother Chris, the former Philly cop who is 4-1 in the UFC and fights Curtis Blaydes on March 26th.
Good win for Kyle, though. He was coming off a bout with Kevin Holland that turned into a no contest because of an accidental headbutt. He had lost a unanimous decision a few months prior to that, so he’s back in the win column for the first time since November of 2020. He gets $50k for performance of the night and is back on track in the UFC while improving to 11-2 overall in mixed martial arts.
