A promise fulfilled is just the beginning for new members of the UFC roster once they put pen to paper and the ink dries on the contract. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a steer of savage staunchness ready to scatter prospective challengers to the winds for the promotion at middleweight. A professional mixed martial artist since April 2021 and representing WAR Training Center, Zachary Reese holds an unbeaten 6-0 record comprised of four knockouts and two submissions. He earned his UFC contract on week three during season seven of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series in 2023. Reese has fought for several organizations during his time in the professional ranks including Fury Fighting Championship. 1oo percent of Reese’s victories over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter have been inside the opening round with a six for six finish rate to show for it. He has never gone to the scorecards at any point in all six of his appearances thus far.
In his MMA debut at Peak Fighting 10, he faced Fred Zamora and knocked him out in round one. Reese also knocked out Malik Jahmaze in the first round at Peak Fighting 15. Then in his promotional debut with Fury Fighting Championship at Fury FC 71, he defeated Shahriar Zolfaghari via technical knockout in round one. Reese tapped out The Ultimate Fighter season 29 alumni Aaron Philips in the first round at Fury FC 74. He defeated Tommie Britton via TKO in round one at Fury FC 76 to earn his fourth knockout win as a professional.
In the main event of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series week three of season seven, Reese submitted Eli Aronov in the first round. The win earned Reese the second submission victory of his professional career in addition to a UFC contract. He also extended his undefeated streak to six along with securing his sixth consecutive finish in the process. Trading in the pocket or grappling with limbs left exposed has a single consequence when a charging bull like Reese has locked eyes on a target!
