UFC 212: Aldo vs Holloway



Watch the UFC 212 Post Fight Show here!


Commentary team mentions Beltran's mother passed away this week. Must have been extremely tough to stay focused on the job. Never really got into the fight. Best wishes to him.

Official decision. Deiveson Figueiredo defeats Marco Beltran at 5:00 of Round 2 via TKO (referee stoppage).

Figueiredo cuts an impassioned promo in Portuguese. Brian Stann asks if he felt the fight was over at the end of the round. Beltran was still in his corner getting attention when the decision was read. He says "he wasn't out, but he was wobbly."

He tells Brian Stann "it's a great pleasure to shake your hand." Very friendly man. 12-0 in his pro career.

Brazil are 1-0 already. Next we move to welterweight...

LUAN CHAGAS VS JIM WALLHEAD Chagas has a rare record of having drawn his UFC debut. That was back at UFC 198 against Sergio Moraes. He was then submitted by Erick Silva and looks for his first Octagon win against the lone Brit on the card. Englishman Wallhead lost a split decision to Jessin Ayari in Hamburg last December. Someone will get their first UFC win next!

Judo Jimmy is out to "Turn Down For What" so that's a black mark. He's from Leicester though, where I used to live, so that's a positive.

Chagas vs Wallhead. I won't lie, there's a lot of bad tattoos on show here. Chagas is a reasonably strong favourite. Eduardo Herdy is the ref. And the fight is on.

Wallhead trying to push the pace early. Chagas is very patient so far, which isn't like him. Wallhead fires a two punch combo. Both miss. Chahas throws a head kick that catches shoulder and then a a couple of heavy leg kicks.

Jimmy trying to find his range with his jab, but hasn't found it yet, and gets lit up with a couple of kicks. One to the leg and one to the body. Chagas ducks a cross and lands a counter uppercut.
