Bantamweight super prospect Manny Bermudez has been steamrolling the competition on the regional scene at an impressive clip in recent years. The buzz Bermudez has created along the way have many in the know believing the 135-pound phenom is within striking distance of receiving a call from one of the top promotions in mixed martial arts.
Yet, in order for Bermudez to keep making positive gains toward his desired goal he needed to face established competition. His bout against Bendy Casimir in the main event at Cage Titans 35 was precisely the showcase he needed.
The far more experienced fighter and WEC veteran has stepped into the cage with some of the top lighter weight fighters in the game, and on Saturday night on FloCombat; it was Bermudez's turn to battle. The undefeated talent wasted zero time getting to work as he planted a huge shot on Casimir from the jump before putting him on the canvas. Shortly after hitting the ground, Bermudez locked in a triangle choke that left Casimir out cold on the canvas.
It was quick work and an extremely impressive way for Bermudez to make his case to move up to the big leagues.
