Nigel Crosswell doesn’t feel Jake Kelly will be able to stand with him in FLA 6 main event

Nigel Crosswell (0-1) will welcome Jake Kelly (0-0) to the professional ranks in a flyweight tilt in the FLA 6 main event tomorrow night in Moncton, N.B.

Crosswell has not seen cage action since his professional debut in April 2019, but is confident in the changes he’s made throughout this three-year layoff.

“It’s no secret everybody, all my opponents are going to try to take me down. I expect my next opponent to do the same. I know he has some hands himself, but I don’t think anybody can match my standup game, so no matter what they’re going to be forced to eventually shoot for the takedown,” said Crosswell in an interview with MMA Empire.

“That’s definitely what I’ve been working on ever since my last pro fight on TKO. I’ve had a lot of time to do that with COVID and stuff, so really excited to kind of be able to showcase that finally and get in the ring after a big, long layoff.”
