Kyle Daukaus improves his record to 11-2 with 9 submissions after he grabs a buzzer-beating finish over Jamie Pickett in the very last second of round 1.
Daukaus clearly had the superior grappling in the match, securing 3 takedowns on 6 attempts, and successfully defending Pickett’s only takedown attempt. Daukaus also accumulated 4:12 of control time in the fight that lasted just 4:59.
In his post-fight interview, he called out El Cucuy Tony Ferguson, claiming the title of “D’Arce Knight”. “I wanna call out Tony Ferguson. I have more D’Arce Chokes, so I’m gonna go for the ‘D’Arce Knight’. My new nickname. ‘D’Arce Knight’”. While this victory is the first of Daukaus’ UFC appearances, it is the 6th of his professional MMA career.
