Rowe (9-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) boasts a perfect finish record, having knocked out each of his last three opponents. His most recent victory came in February, when he submitted Jason Witt in the second round.
Rowe attributes his success to his boxing trainer Kelly Davis and his ability to bother many of his welterweight opponents with his 80.5-inch reach.
“They’re random and they shock me every time,” Rowe said.
“Oddly enough, my little frame, I’ve got a lot of power, and it’s how I punch. People could think I’m being funny or – I’m doing something different than 99 percent of these guys. Maybe one day I’ll do a breakdown video on it, but I’ve finished 100 percent of the fights I’ve been in. If I win, I’m going to finish. I’ve never been in a fight – amateur, pro – that I won that wasn’t a finish.
“Amateur, I knocked dudes out with head gear on, and it’s not because I’m big and strong. I have a lot of range, and that creates leverage, and the way I punch is different than 99 percent of people because a lot of people say it’s incorrect. … It’s a unique style and elbow up – that’s all I could tell you. When my right hand touches people, they usually fold. It’s just the way I fight. It’s just what happens. I just end up knocking people out and submitting guys, so it just happens. I don’t think about it.”
