UFC 201: Nikita Krylov Delivers Fifth Straight Victory

ufc 201

At just 24 years old, Nikita Krylov continues to get better each and every day.

Krylov showed just that at UFC 201 Saturday night, connecting with a head-kick that left Ed Herman out cold, giving him his fifth consecutive victory.

Following a 2014 submission loss to Ovince Saint Preux, Krylov (21-4) is a perfect 5-0 over his last five. That includes all five wins being finishes, with three subs and two knockouts.

“This was the most experienced opponent I have ever fought,” he said. “I have big respect for him and this was a very good moment for me.”

Overall, Krylov is 6-2 with the UFC, having dropped his debut three years ago as a heavyweight to Soa Palelei.

“Karate is my base,” he said. “It is one of the things I do best.”
