After knocking out one of the hottest prospects in Bellator, Hungarian star Adam Borics is riding a tidal wave of momentum. Now he’s heading into the Bellator featherweight grand prix looking to extend his unbeaten run all the way to the final and title belt.
In his last outing, undefeated Borics (13-0 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) spectacularly knocked out Aaron Pico at Bellator 222 in June as the 26-year-old announced himself as a serious threat to the division’s best. And now he says he’s ready to make his mark against the biggest names in Bellator’s 145-pound class.
“I am so excited, but I am the same person who works hard every day,” Borics told MMA Junkie. “I have a goal to become a world champion, and I’m working towards that every day.”
That knockout against Pico, a stunning flying knee, catapulted Borics to stardom back in Hungary, and he said he was mobbed when he returned there after his fight.
