He was on the canvas for a few moments too.

McKinney said he doesn’t usually celebrate like that, he just screams. The first reaction he had when he was hurt, he said, “‘Hey, damn it, I’d rather not do that.’ He said he will have to work on different celebrations, “for sure,” for the future. fights.
And he believes the UFC can get more chances (if healthy) after tying Frevola with a big left hand. The 26-year-old was in 13 professional fights (10 wins) before Saturday. The UFC called him on Tuesday to replace Frevol’s original opponent, Frank Camacho, who was injured in a car accident.
“I definitely know I’m from here,” McKinney told Okamoto. “All I had to do was sharpen my stand-up. And I knew when my stand-up was over, I could be with anyone in the UFC, with the top 10.”
