“The Jamaican Sensation” simply feels it.

Dana White’s Contender Series alum Ode Osbourne (9-3, 1-1 UFC) does not like winning fights via decision. On the 29-year-old fighter’s record, 8 out of 9 victories have come inside the distance, with just making it to Round 2. In his latest, he scored one of the fastest KOs in UFC featherweight division history by defeating Jerome Rivera in a mere 26 seconds. For his next challenge, “The Jamaican Sensation” will drop to the 125-pound division, where he will lock horns with former Rizin Fighting Federation bantamweight titleholder Manel Kape. Before that, the Waukesha MMA representative expressed his thoughts on his killer instinct.

“I always have that killer instinct because I like to figure out ways I can finish people,” he said. “You know what I’m saying? That’s my thing. I don’t like to be in there fighting for three rounds and it goes to decision. If it goes to decision, I feel like I didn’t do my job and my job was uncompleted. There might be fights that I go to decision, but I feel like I didn’t do my job whenever it goes the distance. I try to finish people because that’s what fighting is all about. You try to prove that you are the best and the only way to prove that you are the best is to finish everybody.”
