Newly Signed UFC Prospect Chris “El Guapo” Gutierrez talks Debut, Personal Battles & More

Chris Gutierrez

Chris Gutierrez established himself at Legacy Fighting Alliance 52.

The main event featured two up and coming prospects in the bantamweight division. 13 – 4 Ray Rodriguez took on the heavily favored 12 – 2 Chris “El Guapo” Gutierrez. The “Judge” Ray Rodriguez looked dominant in his last performances with an impressive 8-fight winning streak going into the bout. This, however, did not phase “El Guapo” as it only took him 4:47 seconds of the very first round to submit the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt with slick rear-naked choke. Everyone took notice of “El Guapo’s performance.

It did not take long for the UFC to contact Chris’ manager and have him make his debut, 6 weeks later. The Ultimate Fighter 28 takes place at The Pearl at the Palms Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event features prosperous welterweights Kamaru Usman versus Rafael Dos Anjos in a contender eliminator fight. This is also the night that Chris Gutierrez will make his awaited debut into the 8-sided octagon and demonstrate what “El Guapo” is capable of.

MMASucka exclusively was able to get the bantamweight in a 50 minute-long segment feature on The Complete Knockout Podcast.
