The time has finally come for Khama Worthy. After calling for it for years now, Worthy finally got the call he has been waiting for. That call came from the UFC. “The Deathstar” Khama Worthy is set to make his UFC debut at UFC 241 this weekend.
Khama Worthy to the UFC
Worthy shared the article from UFC.com on his Facebook page this afternoon.
The last 24 hours have been crazy, We stay ready so we don't have to get ready. We are ready to put on a show for everyone 👊🏿. #allhailtheacademy
On the preliminary card of UFC 241, Khama Worthy will be making his UFC debut against his friend and former training partner, Devonte Smith. Like Worthy, Smith fought in the western Pennsylvania regional scene before making his way to the UFC. Following Worthy’s win at 247 Fighting Championships less than three weeks ago, Smith took to his Instagram to congratulate his friend on the big win. In that fight at Brawl in the Burgh, Worthy defeated Adam Ward via KO in the third round to retain his 247 FC lightweight title.
Smith announced the opponent change on his Instagram, where he shared a video and a picture of him and Worthy training together. In the caption, Smith wrote “I did say I would only fight a friend if we making that money money.”
