Denver’s Brandon “Rukus” Thatch – UFC
Colarado-based welterweight Brandon “Rukus” Thatch signed a multi-fight deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship earlier this year. At the age of 5, Brandon realized MMA was his calling. Now at the age of 27 he has fulfilled his dream by becoming a UFC fighter coming in at 6’2″, 170 lbs with a record of 9 wins and only 1 loss. This mile high sensation has only just begun to pave his way as becoming a UFC phenomenon.
First-round finishes are a common theme for Thatch, as he has earned all nine of his professional wins by stopping his opponent by (technical) knockout or submission in the opening frame. The 27-year-old wastes no time when he steps into the cage, which will be a more than welcomed style of fighting under the bright lights of the UFC
Witness it yourself as he fights again on August 28, 2013 against Justin Edwards at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana. You can watch locally in Colorado on Fox Sports2. Keep up to date with Brandon and his MMA journey by following him on Facebook and through MMA outlets such as MMA Weekly.
