If you didn’t know the name Justin Jaynes a week ago, you definitely know who he is now.
This past weekend Justin Jaynes had a lightning-quick KO on UFC veteran Frank “The Crank” Camacho in only 41 seconds of the first round. On top of his victory, this was Jaynes’s UFC debut on an insane 2-days notice.
Justin Jaynes fights out of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was the two-division champion of WXC, and had 50 amateur fights with a pro record of 16-4. Hailing from Michigan originally, Jaynes is currently is an instructor at his gym, and you’d likely find him in the outdoors fishing or hunting outside of training.
In his post-fight press conference, Jaynes stated
“It’s only been 48 hours since I got the call. I don’t even know what’s happening right now. I’m on autopilot.”
He even made a call-out following his performance.
“I got a couple of guys on my hit list… Drakkar Klose beat me in 2007 in the high school wrestling state championship… he ruined my dream”
I’m sure his opportunity for revenge will come in the future.
Justin was on a five-fight win streak starting in 2015 until it eventually came to an end late 2017 against Tommy Aaron. He even considered retirement after the loss of an already long career. That is an idea of the past now. He had “zero nerves” and visualized and prepared for this moment his whole life. Whoever “Guitar Hero” faces next, they better lookout.
Justin Jaynes carries some insane knock out power (video below), and you can’t help but wonder what’s in store next for the 30-year old.
