PFL Europe: Nate Kelly delights home crowd with dominant display in Dublin

Nate Kelly marked his PFL debut with an impressive second-round submission victory over Callum Seaton.

The 19-year-old opened up the PFL Europe finals in Dublin in a showcase amateur bout.

Despite being first on the preliminary card, the 3Arena was already half-full, with many Irish fans determined to get a glimpse of their potential new superstar.

Kelly certainly left a positive impression as he timed his attacks well and even took down the wrestling specialist on numerous occasions.

This was Kelly’s fourth amateur fight, with the teenager now boasting a 2-2 record. His other win came against Thomas Cowell - a unanimous decision victory during the EMMA Four Nations Tournament last July.

Eight years ago, Nate ‘The Great’ went viral after stealing the show during a UFC press conference.

At the age of 11, Kelly got on the mic and promised UFC supremo Dana White and Conor McGregor he would one day become world champion.

The Irishman is expected to remain an amateur fighter for another year, before a transition to the pros.
