For a fighter who is just beginning on their professional journey, consistency is the ultimate key to a successful career. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a blacksmith of metal meanness ready to take opponents straight from the forge and into the professional fire with his nonstop arsenal of ground techniques as he enters the pro spotlight in 2023 and beyond. A professional mixed martial artist since January 2023 and representing Rising Son MMA, Kyle Zimick owns a 2-0 record with both of his wins coming via submission. Zimick has fought for 247 Fighting Championships and Legacy Fighting Alliance. He has a 100 percent finish rate and has never gone through to the scorecards at any point over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter so far. Zimick has earned a finish in each of his appearances during his time in the professional ranks thus far with one second-round finish in addition to a single third-round finish to show for it. 100 percent of Zimick’s finishes during his career as a professional mixed martial artist have been inside the distance with a two for two tapout rate through two contests to show for it thus far.
In his professional MMA debut with Legacy Fighting Alliance on the preliminary card of LFA 150, he faced Connor Penka and went on to submit him in the second round via rear-naked choke. Then in the main event of 247 Fighting Championships Brawl in the Burgh 17, Zimick tapped out Justin Patton in round three. The win earned Zimick the second submission victory of his professional career. He also picked up back-to back finishes along with maintaining his 100 percent finishing rate in the process. Once Zimick takes a contest into his wheelhouse, the hammering truly starts so do not leave your limbs open for the taking otherwise you will be exposed to his wrath!
