Making it to the UFC is half the fun once a fighter turns professional. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a jaguar of the sun ready to rain down sizzling heat as he looks to make a big splash in the UFC‘S welterweight division. A professional mixed martial artist since September 2014 and representing Elevate MMA, Preston Parsons owns a 9-3 record through 12 professional bouts, with all nine of his victories as a pro-MMA fighter coming via submission. Parsons fought for various promotions including Titan Fighting Championship prior to making his UFC debut at UFC On ESPN 26 in July 2021. He has yet to go to the scorecards at any point during his time in the professional ranks thus far. 100 percent of Parson’s wins during his pro career have come inside the distance within the space of two rounds.
In his MMA debut at House Of Fame A New Dawn, he submitted Marc Graham via armbar in the first round. Parsons also tapped out his next two opponents in Alejandro Gomez and Jose Andres Cortes. Then at Titan FC 39, he submitted Ignacio Bahamondes via armbar in round one. Parsons also tapped out David Mundell in the first round via armbar at Titan FC 42. At Combat Night Pro 11 Duval, he submitted Wesley Barnes in round one. Parsons tapped out Socrates Pierre via rear-naked choke in the first round at Combat Night Pro 14. He submitted Wesley Golden in the first round at Combat Night Pro 15.
In the main event of Combat Night pro 22, he tapped out Jeff Peterson via armbar in the second round. The victory earned Parsons the ninth submission win of his professional career. At 9-3 with a perfect finishing rate, Parsons is one panther that is always quick on the draw and deadly with his squeeze when the claws come out to play!
