Gavin Tucker put a performance of the night type of fight for his debut in Halifax tonight. Tucker moved similar to bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt in his fight against Sam Sicilia and made him look silly.
Tucker did amazing as he was able to pivot, shift, counter and brutally destroy Sicilia with leg kicks. Sicilia is a seasoned UFC featherweight, but he had no clue what to do in this fight. There really has not been a debut like this since Conor McGregor. Of course McGregor has played his cards right since that time, but the future will tell for Tucker.
Gavin Tucker is already a star in the making for UFC fans in Canada. He was impressive on a short notice fight and it would be exciting to see what he could do with a full training camp. Tucker has the makings of a star and it is up to him about what he can do from this point on. He truly had a brilliant performance tonight.
