The biggest star of the Octagon? If we put together quality, potential and popularity, we have to mention the newly two-time champion of the organization. Losene Keita is destroying one opponent after another. Questions abound as to whether he has outgrown the Octagon. But what is it?
Losene Keita has done it. Again. And again. Still only twenty-five years old, the fighter has a huge future and the Octagon has a real gem in him. Can anyone ever stop him?
First he quickly destroyed Karol Rysavy, then he took out Ronald Paradeiser in a five-round points battle, and then he dispatched Ivan Buchinger, Samuel Bark and lastly Jakub Tichota.
And that’s not counting that he also managed to deal with elite stand-up Milan Pales in the stand-up rules. Purely in MMA, however, only Paradeiser has finished Keita on points in the Octagon.
A win over Buchinger made him the lightweight champion, and by ending Tichota he also became the interim featherweight champion. He still has to dethrone Mate Sanikidze to be the regular two-weight king.
There’s hardly an interview anymore where Keita doesn’t get questions about his involvement in the UFC. According to some fans, he has outgrown the Octagon and the question is whether there is anyone who can beat him.
There was also a question about the size of Keita and the Octagon at the press conference. “What kind of question is that? I don’t know. I don’t think so. What do you expect me to say?” ondrej Novotny replied when asked if the champion has outgrown the organization.
“It happens to be great that we have Keita. We’re expanding to Germany, to the UK. He has a great future with us,” added Pavol Neruda.
And what about Keita himself? “I’m just fighting. There are other good fighters and I’m just here. I still have a lot of time to learn. I’ve only been doing MMA for six years,” said the two-time champion.
In any case, Keita has been in contact with the UFC since last year. In an interview with Ruik ahead of his fight with Tichota, he explained how things are currently.
