In the early stages of his professional MMA career, Waterbury’s Mike Kimbel is drawing attention.
2 wins, no losses.
As photographer Ryan Bernat shows us, it’s taken the 21 year old barely no time to live up to his nickname “The Savage.”
“I got into mixed martial arts because I kept getting in trouble for fights and stuff like that,” Kimbel says. “I step into that cage and it’s like a chaotic calm. It feels good to be in there. It feels like that’s what I’m on Earth to do, feels like where I belong. I’m following my dream – living it actually.”
Kimbel broke his own record of an 8 second knockout with a 6 second knockout.
