VIDEO: Perfectionist Tom Breese is disappointed despite notching another UFC win

He didn't exactly 'Breese' to victory

Tom Victor

Victory over a tough opponent to maintain your undefeated MMA record should be a cause for celebration, but Tom Breese demands more.

The talented UFC prospect, who told JOE this week he considers himself better than the likes of Sage Northcutt and Joe Duffy, saw off Keita Nakamura by unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night London.

But the Birmingham youngster has set high standards for himself, and felt disappointed not to have continued his run of winning every bout by KO or submission.

If you’d woken up this morning to Breese talking of being “disappointed” after a “poor performance”, you could be forgiven for thinking Nakamura had got the better of the unbeaten 24-year-old.

But fans will be impressed by his commitment to not just winning, but winning in style.

Sometimes you need to be pragmatic and just get the job done, but Breese knows if he’s to reach the top of his sport he’ll want to improve with each and every fight.
