Jared Cannonier was more than ready for his close-up.
In his first chance to headline inside the Octagon, Cannonier made short work of top-5 contender Jack Hermansson at UFC Copenhagen, needing a little more than a round to stop “The Joker” and claim his spot in the rankings. Cannonier, now 3-0 as a middleweight, may be soft-spoken, but he had plenty of folks in the MMA world talking about his performance on Saturday.
Check out the top tweets from Saturday’s UFC Copenhagen main event.
He’s not on the rise anymore! He’s there! He’s gotta be next in line for the title shot at Middleweight! Can-non-ier!! That Ground N Pound game is vicious! #UFCCopenhagen
