UFC 152: Jimy Hettes Poised to Make Noise in the UFC Featherweight Division
There are many up and coming fighters in the UFC. They are rising prospects with explosive skills. One such prospect is undefeated 10-0 UFC featherweight Jimy "The Kid" Hettes.
Don't be fooled by him only having two UFC fights under his belt. He also has eight prior bouts outside of the UFC.
His record is incredibly impressive. Before making it to the UFC he held a record of 8-0 with all eight of those being submission wins. And not just one submission but multiple one's including rear-naked chokes, triangle chokes, guillotine chokes, armbars, and a heel hook.
Next, Hettes made the jump to the UFC and was given The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 alum Alex Caceres. Hettes used his excellent Judo and put his submission skills on display as he tapped out Caceres.
He was next given Nam Phan another TUF 12 alum at UFC 141. In what is so far the only decision win of his career he dominated Phan for three complete rounds to score the win.
Hettes has something rarely seen in MMA that I believe allows him to win his fights. He has a great and rare blend of Judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu that allows him to control his opponents while standing, set up a hip toss, and once on the mat to go for the submission.
He also has very underrated striking. Combine all his skills with some hard work and Hettes could make some serious noise in the division. He's a rising prospect with a very high ceiling. His next fight takes him to Toronto for UFC 152 to take on yet another TUF alum in the 5-1 Marcus Brimage.
If everything goes well I see Hettes pulling off his third straight victory inside the Octagon. He's a rising prospect that every fan needs to keep on their radar.
Remember folks "The Kid" is alright.
