Paul Felder is a name to know for top newcomers in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Felder won his UFC debut against Jason Saggo by split decision, but he did not waste time to show the UFC fans that he is only getting better.

Felder is currently 10-0 in his mixed martial arts career and after his debut win in the UFC, he took a fight on short notice against Danny Castillo. He was looked at as a pretty big underdog in the fight, but he showed UFC fans that he is in the UFC and here for good. Paul Felder KO’d Danny Castillo with what is being called the early front-runner for KO Of The Year by many. Felder landed the third ever spinning back fist KO in the UFC, but what is even more impressive is that his spinning back fist KO of Danny Castillo might not even be his best career KO.

While fighting in the Cage Fury Fighting Championships, Paul Felder KO’d Craig Johnson with a stunning spinning heel kick.

Moral of the story; this man can fight and he can end fights viciously. He is exactly what the UFC is looking for and could end up becoming the next big star if he keeps progressing.

Felder has been showing MMA fans since 2011 that he is no joke and now he is showing UFC fans that he is looking to be force. His next fight is scheduled against UFC veteran Jim Miller on April 18, 2015 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

If Felder can get a win over a very respected UFC vet, then look for him to be signing contracts for even bigger fights in the future and probably collecting a lot of post-fight bonuses as well.
