UFC 293 video: Kevin Jousset slickly squeezes Kiefer Crosbie into submission, calls out Ian Garry

Kevin Jousset impressed in his promotional debut Saturday in his adopted home country of Australia.

In the UFC 293 preliminary card opener, Jousset (9-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) diced up former Bellator fighter Kiefer Crosbie (10-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) before he looked in a rear-naked choke submission at 4:49 of Round 1.

The fight was a striking battle until it hit the canvas, at which point the France-born, City Kickboxing product got a tap from Ireland’s Crosbie in a matter of seconds thereafter.

Following the win, Jousset called out Ian Garry in an attempt to continue the theme of defeating Irish fighters.

With the victory, Jousset, a former two-weight champion for Eternal MMA, has won four bouts in a row. On the flip side, Crosbie loses for the first time since his Bellator departure in late 2021.
