Yusuff, who was clearly a favourite heading into the event against short notice opponent Don Shainis and needed just 30 seconds to affirm why. He was initially booked to face Giga Chikadze but the later pulled out and the Featherweight took out his frustrations on Shainis.

Yusuff was brutal in his attack, landing knees consistently on Shainis. The fight was heading towards a knockout stoppage but Yusuff switched up and grabbed a guillotine, fell to guard. Shainis didn’t resist and need a little squeeze to tap and it all ended.

Yusuff clearly expected a much tougher fight and believes the fight was just high risk and low reward.

“I was expecting a much higher-ranked fight,” Yusuff said afterwards. “I’ve had a lot of pauses in my career that was out of my hand. High risk, low reward, but fighter’s fight.

“I knew I was going to be able to find shots coming up the middle but don’t sleep on my jiu-jitsu.”

Yusuff is looking for a highly ranked opponent after being so much trouble for the less ranked opponents in the division. The win is his second in a row and Chan will be a good high profile for his return in 2023

“I would love to meet up with ‘The Korean Zombie’ [Chan Sung Jung],” Yusuff shouted. “‘Korean Zombie’ we could do this in January, it would be awesome.”
