Trey Waters discusses his first career UFC win

April was a really busy month for Trey Waters.

On April 14, Waters fought in the LFA promotion at LFA 156 and there was a lot on the line for Waters as he was fighting for the welterweight title in the main event.

In that fight, Waters took on Jalin Fuller and the two both brought their best on fight night.

Both fighters would land heavy shots, but it was Waters using his big six foot five inch frame to land the biggest blow of the fight.

In the second round of that fight, Waters put Fuller away with a punch in the second round to win the title and get himself one step closer to the UFC.

What Waters didn’t realize, was that UFC opportunity was going to happen immediately.

Just two weeks later on April 29, Waters made his UFC debut at UFC Vegas 72.

The turnaround between fights was a lot, but Waters couldn’t turn down the opportunity as its been his dream to make the UFC roster.

That dream is now a reality and it’s off to a great start.

At UFC Vegas 72, Waters took on Josh Quinian and once again, it was Waters size that made a big difference in the fight.

Waters is now the tallest fighter in the UFC’s welterweight division and his long reach lead to his first UFC win.

Throughout the course of his UFC Vegas 72 fight, Waters would use his jab over and over again to batter Quinian and easily leave Las Vegas with a unanimous decision win.

Following the fight, UFC president Dana White met up with Waters to praise his performance and the two exchange plenty of great words for one another.

Now that the two wins are in the books, Waters will take sometime to relax and heal up, but he already cannot for his next UFC fight.

After his two victories, Waters spoke with MyMMANews to discuss his two wins in detail. You can watch his full interview in the video above.
