UFC on Fuel Video: Getting to Know Tom 'Kong' Watson

Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterSeptember 27, 2012

Unless you're a hardcore MMA fan, you probably don't know the name Tom "Kong" Watson. But the English middleweight is a familiar name to fans of the local United Kingdom fight scene, and this Saturday on Fuel TV, he'll have his chance to let the entire world know who he is when he takes on Brad Tavares.

Watson is a popular figure on the English fight scene, known mostly for his energetic walks to the ring wearing a gorilla mask. He's a former BAMMA champion and a very dangerous fighter, and he will provide a tough test for Tavares.

In this video shot by Rick Lee, you'll get to know a little bit more about "Kong" as he prepares to make his debut.
