Remember this kid from iconic Conor McGregor press conference? He just won his PFL debut

Remember Nate “The Great” Kelly, the little kid who infamously verbally jabbed at Jose Aldo during an iconic 2015 Conor McGregor press conference in Dublin?

Well, he’s all grown up now – and he’s kicking ass.

Friday at 2023 PFL Europe 4, Kelly (2-2 amateur) submitted opponent Callum Seaton (1-3 amateur) with an anaconda choke in Round 2. The event took place in front of Kelly’s home city crowd at 3Arena in Dublin (via X):

Kelly was 11 when he told Aldo to prepare McGregor’s belt with a spit shine. Now 19, Kelly has accumulated four amateur fights with a split record. It’s unclear when he plans to turn professional, but Friday’s fight in the international spotlight certainly builds his notoriety even greater.
