Get To Know UFC Fight Night 84’s Tom Breese

ufc fight night 84

With a name like Tom Breese, the nicknames are endless.

But, the Brit has a different nickname he goes by, and it is honestly even more fitting once you break the resume down:

“The Octopus.”

Breese returns to the Octagon this weekend against Keita Nakamura in London at UFC Fight Night 84.

The 24-year-old from Birmingham owns six submission wins among his nine career victories. And just for the sake of it, his other three are also stoppages.

Breese made his UFC debut last May, scoring a first round TKO vs. Luiz Dutra, Jr. He followed that up in October, doing the same thing to Cathal Pendred right in Pendred’s own backyard of Dublin.

Those two quick wins added to the four first round victories he claimed while competing in BAMMA from 2010-12.

And unlike so many British fighters who try to build a camp in England and grow from there, Breese trains out of the renowned Tristar Gym in Montreal.

The one that helped mold Georges St-Pierre, Rory MacDonald and so many others.

While the welterweight division remains a hot-bed for young talent, there is no doubting that Breese is closing on on the ranks sooner rather than later.
