#2 Brian Ortega vs. #4 “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung: Featherweight
Winner: Brian Ortega
Winning Method: Brian Ortega wins by unanimous decision (50-45, 50-45, 50-45).
Not really the expected performance from Zombie, and it was almost stopped as well. Ortega dominated the whole way with a 116-64 significant strike advantage, and executing the only three takedowns of the bout. “T-City” will now get his shot at the featherweight title.
#1 Katlyn Chookagian vs. #2 Jessica Andrade: Women’s Flyweight
Winner: Jessica Andrade
Winning Method: Jessica Andrade wins by TKO (punches) at 4:55 of the first round.
Some kind of body blow slowed Chookagian, and she simply couldn’t recover. Andrade becomes the first woman to win a UFC bout in three different weight classes.
Jimmy Crute vs. Modestas Bukauskas: Light Heavyweight
Winner: Jimmy Crute
Winning Method: Jimmy Crute wins by TKO at 2:01 of the first round.
Claudio Silva vs. James Krause: Welterweight
Winner: James Krause
Winning Method: James Krause wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).
He won on significant strikes 94-64, and Silva was only able to execute two of 12 attempted takedowns. With 73 of those shots to the head, Krause was the no-controversy winner.
Thomas Almeida vs. Jonathan Martinez: Featherweight
Winner: Jonathan Martinez
Winning Method: Jonathan Martinez wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).
Martinez won all three rounds in a fight where he outstruck his opponent 73-64, but the power behind his shots in this totally stand-up battle was the difference.
Mateusz Gamrot vs. Guram Kutateladze: Lightweight
Winner: Guram Kutateladze
Winning Method: Guram Kutateladze wins by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).
A controversial decision in what had Fight of The Night potential. Kutateladze was outstrick 52-37, and Gamrot also had fight control for 3:29-0:01, and the only five takedowns as well. The judges had a tough call here, but this one is not without controversy.
#15 Gillian Robertson vs. Poliana Botelho: Women’s Flyweight
Winner: Gillian Robertson
Winning Method: Gillian Robertson wins by unanimous decision (29-27, 29-27, 29-28).
Robertson won 57-22 on significant strikes, and 9:34-1:16 on fight control. She’ll retain her ranking and possibly slide up a spot or two after this performance.
Junyong Park vs. John Phillips: Middleweight
Winner: Junyong Park
Winning Method: Junyong Park wins by unanimous decision (30-25, 30-25, 30-25).
A complete domination. Park led on total strikes 260 to 13, and on fight control for 13:11 of the 15-minute fight. He also had all four takedowns in the bout.
Fares Ziam vs. Jamie Mullarkey: Lightweight
Winner: Fares Ziam
Winning Method: Fares Ziam wins by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
