Did you know that there is a UK-based mixed martial arts promotion, called MMA League, which features kids’ MMA matches?
Yup, that’s right. And one of those matches has recently gone viral; as it shows an 8-year-old boy submitting his opponent with a picture-perfect Kimura setup.
Namely, it was a fight between Albie King and Finn Pearce.
Immediately from the get-go, King went on the offensive, with a lot of strikes and leg kicks thrown at his opponent.
Then, after a brief clinching exchange, King went for a rolling Kimura setup… And got it done!
Watch it all take place on the video below:

King’s performance was praised by many, including the professional MMA fighter Cody Durden, who’s one of the UFC’s flyweight roster athletes:
Nice transition from the clinch. Kids a savage.
