Watch Nate Diaz Pull Out A Blunt On Live TV

Because of course he did.

FOX Sports 1 censors were probably already feeling nervous when newcomer Jimmy Smith entered the cage to interview Derrick Lewis following his massive KO win over Marcin Tybura. Lewis is a notoriously profane presence on Twitter and his victory speeches often involve the overt sexualization of Ronda Rousey.

That left his wife feeling a bit pissed off and left out, so this time Derrick chose to point his passions at her, declaring “To my baby, April, better get ready girl. I’m going deep.”

As if that wasn’t classy enough, right at that moment the cameras cut to show Nate Diaz sitting in the crowd. So what did Nate do? He popped a blunt in his mouth and flicked his bic as if to light it, all with a 10 year old girl in the background watching with her eyes wide.

With that one moment, Nate managed to steal the show … which is pretty impressive considering what a great show UFC Fight Night Austin ended up being.

Liam McGeary vs. Vadim Nemkov

Nemkov has the black trunks with red trim and blue gloves. He comes in with a record of 8-2 and a reputation as a stand-up striker with heavy hands. The former champion McGeary has black trunks and red gloves, a record of 12-2, and so far his biggest weakness is his takedown defense. We’ll see how that plays out tonight. McGeary is 35 out of Brooklyn, NY, Nemkov is 25 out of Stary Oskol, Russia. McGeary owns the reach advantage at 81” to 75.5”. Our referee is Dan Miragliotta.

Round 1: Nemkov lands a solid right hand at 32 seconds but McGeary seems unfazed. Nemkov continues to chase with the hands and throws an uppercut. McGeary is staying on his back foot and being patient until he can unload a kick to the body. Another overhand right by Nemkov. Nemkov paws the range with his left jab and then uses the right to do the damage. Another uppercut by Nemkov at 2:25. A good left hand follows 7 seconds later. Nemkov is owning the fight thus far. The right hand finds a home again for Nemkov at 3:01 and McGeary tries to push forward. Nemkov backs him up again and stings McGeary’s left leg with four hard kicks. McGeary tries a head kick and falls down. He’s back up before Nemkov can pounce. Nemkov and McGeary trade kicks as the final minute of R1 winds down. Left hook lands for Nemkov. Nemkov shoots and gets a takedown at the bell. 10-9 for Nemkov.

Round 2: Nemkov blasts McGeary with a right hand standing and then gets on top on the ground when McGeary tries to lock up. McGeary tries to catch him in a triangle but Nemkov quickly senses it coming and gets out of danger, content to stand and kick until McGeary stands back up at 1:20. Nemkov continues to fish out the range with the left jab and left hook. McGeary is taking more leg kicks as we pass the halfway point. There might have been an accidental low kick to the cup at 3:50 but McGeary waves it off and accepts a glove tap. Nemkov misses with a high kick. He connects with the leg kick and McGeary switches his stance. He’s feeling it. Nemkov continues to target it. 10-9.

Round 3: McGeary is in a huge hole going into R3 for the second straight fight of his career. He’s also been immobilized by the leg kicks from Nemkov, who easily takes him to the ground at 54 seconds and then backs away so he can kick the legs. McGeary stands back up at 1:23. McGeary falls down trying to throw a kick because he can’t stand up. He can’t even stand back up because his leg gives out. Nemkov stands at range and kicks it until McGeary can finally limp back to his feet. McGeary winces and stumbles as another kick lands at 2:55. This is close to being a TKO via leg kicks. McGeary is hobbling and bobbling. Every step he takes with his left foot is a ginger one. He can’t do it any more at 4:01 and as he turns away and falls Dan Miragliotta waves it off.

Final result: Vadim Nemkov wins by TKO (leg kicks) at 4:02 of the third round.


Heather Hardy vs. Ana Julaton

Final result:


Tywan Claxton vs. Jose Antonio Perez

Blue gloves, white trunks, 0-1 out of Newark, NJ is Jose Perez. Red gloves, black trunks, 1-0 out of Cleveland, OH is Tywan Claxton. Our referee in charge is Keith Peterson.

Round 1: A tap of the gloves gets us underway. Claxton is crouching down and dancing back and forth on his feet. Perez throws a kick. Claxton feints with the left and continues to bob and weave. Front kick with the left foot for Claxton then a leg kick with the right. Claxton shaves Perez’ head with a head kick and comes forward with a knee and right hands. Perez blocks a potential takedown. Perez comes at Claxton throwing rights and Claxton ducks under them for the takedown at 1:48. Claxton has half guard and is trying to push Perez flat to the mat so he can drop bombs, settling for short right elbows in the interim. The ground and pound is doing damage either way. Peterson is keeping a close eye on Perez. Claxton really lays it on heavy as we pass the four minute mark. Perez survives but Claxton was drilling him hard at the bell. 10-9 or better for Claxton.

Round 2: Perez attacks with leg kicks early in R2. Claxton throws a kick of his own to the body, chases with his hands, then gets the takedown at 50 seconds. It’s virtually identical to round one except now Claxton has Perez’ head pinned against the fence. Right hooks and elbows pour down at 2:05. Peterson warns Perez to fight back. Claxton postures up again at 2:45 and Perez gets another warning. Claxton just continues to unload with those elbows. Perez’ face is getting bruised and bloodied. He finally dives in at 3:39 for the merciful save.

Final result: Tywan Claxton wins by technical knockout at 3:39 of round two.


Marcus Surin vs. Dean Hancock

Surin has the black trunks and red gloves and is 4-1 out of Spring Valley, NY. Hancock has the blue gloves and black trunks and is 3-1 out of Danbury, CT. Surin holds a 2” reach advantage 72” to 70”. Keith Peterson is our referee.

Round 1: Gloves are tapped and R1 is underway. Hancock presses forward right away and gets a takedown, slipping off the back when he tried to get in the hooks. Surin pushes forward throwing a left jab and cocking a big right hook which occasionally sneaks in. Hancock starts to press forward again and Surin uses his hands to reverse the momentum. Hancock throws a spin kick to the body that seems to momentarily stun Surin. Surin clinches and Hancock is momentarily on top, they get back up and Hancock nearly got a warning for grabbing the cage before Surin took him back down. He gets one hook in but loses it with a little under two minutes left. Hancock goes for a single leg but can’t get the hooks in and then Surin gets another takedown and is on top landing heavy right elbows. Hancock sits up and sweeps with 58 seconds left. Surin counters and has side control at 4:32. Hancock gets up again but eats some knees against the fence and one right elbow to the face at the bell. 10-9 Surin.

Round 2: Hancock pressures to open R2, throwing hands and leg kicks, Surin makes him retreat with the right hook. Surin and Hancock tie up and Surin wins as they go to the ground, having the mount and taking the back with both hooks in. Hancock tries to buck his way out but Surin rides and drives elbows to the body. Hancock escapes at 2:30 and throws punches to the body and hip as they clinch. Surin pulls him back down to the ground and Hancock turtles up trying to avoid having his back taken. It works. Hancock stands up and gets double underhooks and turns Surin into the fence then suplexes him through the air but it’s Surin who gets the back and both hooks in. He tries a rear naked choke but Hancock escapes at 4:14. Surin goes for the arm triangle choke and gets it at 4:50.

Final result: Marcus Surin wins via arm triangle choke at 4:50 of the second round.


Walter Howard Jr. vs. Jarod Trice

Trice is 2-0 in the red gloves, Howard is 3-4 in the blue gloves, but Howard has a 4.5” reach advantage at 80”. Howard sports checkerboard red/black trunks and fights out of Newark, NJ. Trice has black trunks and fights out of Tempe, AZ. Our referee is Dan Miragliotta.

Round 1: A tap of fingers starts R1. Trice is quickly moving forward and firing his left hand, keeping his right up defensively. Howard is warned by Miragliotta to watch his fingers. Trice fires shots to the body and a right hook as Howard circles on the outside. Kick to the body from Trice. Trice eats a stiff left jab and teases shooting for the legs. Trice starts to wing out the right and then comes over the top with the left. Trice tries to shoot at 3:30 but can’t grab onto anything. Trice starts talking trash and telling Howard “I’m right here” then whistles at a leg kick before throwing an overhand right. Trice nearly throws himself off balance with the next one he throws. Trice comes over the top at 4:50 and his corner is yelling “That hurt him though!” 10-9 Trice.

Round 2: Trice continues to hunt for the overhand right and lands it at 44 seconds. He grapples and pushes Howard around but loses the grip at 1:02. Howard draws a hard warning and is told he’ll lose a point as Trice gets a timeout for being poked in his left eye with a thumb. Miragliotta takes the point and the round resumes with Trice being reminded to watch his fingers too. Trice lands a couple of nasty left hooks and continues to fight through even though he’s having a hard time keeping one eye open. Trice ties up with Howard at 2:54 for a potential takedown. Howard gets free at 3:18. Left hook loops and lands for trice but he eats a right jab in return. Another left for Trice gets in and Howard responds with kicks. 10-8 Trice thanks to the deduction.

Round 3: Trice stuns Howard with a big left hand at 23 seconds and comes forward looking to land an uppercut in the dirty boxing clinch, but it’s Howard who responds with a furious flurry and suddenly it’s Trice who is in trouble, and he goes defensively for a takedown at 1:03 to try to clear his head. They break at 1:19. Miragliotta continues to warn everybody to watch their fingers. Trice whiffs on the left hook and seems to be sucking wind. Trice gets lucky though as Howard throws a kick and he catches it for a takedown — then again maybe not so lucky as Howard counters and takes the back. Trice escapes and takes Howard down again, taking his back against the fence. Trice is unloading with right hands and heavy elbows even as Miragliotta warns him to watch the back of the head. Howard gets back up at 3:25. Trice ties him up against the fence but Howard circles off at 4:14. Trice goes back to the dirty boxing and Howard responds with a head kick. Howard comes forward battering Trice and lands a big head kick at 4:48 as Trice was looking away. 10-9 for Howard.

Final result: The judges score it 28-28, 29-27 and 29-27 for Trice by majority decision.

Round 1: Carvalho just finished by knockout in 17 seconds! The fight’s over so quick the replay of his right hand is the entire fight. He landed one good one to the chin when English was on the ground and that one made it 100% over. Good to see English get back up afterward. Carvalho gives him a hug and lifts him high up in the air.

Final result: Regivaldo Carvalho wins via knockout at 0:17 of the first round.


Tyler Hamilton vs. Pat Casey

Round 1: Unaired on the prelims.

Round 1: After a weird crawl and leapfrog by Leon to start things out we get a takedown and Richardson is on top throwing elbows. Leon tries to close guard to avoid damage or set up a potential submission. Richardson throws lefts to the body and head and keeps on dropping elbows. Leon eats a left elbow and a right to the chin as we pass the 2 minute mark. This fight has been entirely one sided thus far but Richardson hasn’t landed anything hard enough to stop it. Leon manages to kip up and Richardson trips him right back down to half guard. Richardson tries to jump over the top and winds up in closed guard. Richardson continues to mash the hands and elbows as he postures up then tries to scramble for a better position but he’s back in guard again. It’s a definite 10-9 for Richardson borderline to 10-8.

Round 2: Miragliotta warns the fighters to close their hands 30 seconds into R2. Richardson ties up with Leon looking to take it back down to the ground and completes it with a leg trip at 58 seconds. Left hands and left elbows to the head follow. Full mount is achieves at 1:27 and the ground and pound gets really vicious. Miragliotta waves it off at 1:41.

Final result: Ross Richardson wins via technical knockout at 1:41 of round two.


Mike Kimble vs. Geoffrey Then

Kimble is making his pro debut in the black trunks and red gloves fighting out of Waterbury, CT. Then is 0-1 in the blue trunks and blue gloves fighting out of Danbury, CT. Kimble has a 7” reach advantage, 74” to 67”. Our referee is Keith Peterson.

Round 1: A quick tap and both men are quickly dancing. Kimble is trying to come forward with power up the middle and Then is letting him by backing up to the fence. Then is dropped by a right hand at 44 seconds. Then is looking for an armbar when Kimble dives on top, but Kimble powerbombs him to break free and continues to throw heavy ground and pound blows once he gets loose, forcing Peterson to wave it off. Those right hand hammerfists were NASTY.

Final result: Mike Kimble wins via knockout at 1:03 of the first round.

LIVE! UFC 221 ‘Prelims’ Recaps

The action returns to the Octagon later tonight (Sat., Feb. 10, 2018) at UFC 221 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Perth Arena in Perth, Australia, as former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold takes another shot at divisional gold when he takes on the formidable Yoel Romero in the main event. In addition to the headlining act, heavyweight knockout sensation Mark Hunt will look to dispose of rising contender Curtis Blaydes.

But, before the premier bouts get underway on PPV starting at 10 p.m. ET, UFC 221’s “Prelims” action will go down on Fight Pass starting at 6:30 p.m. ET and FOX Sports 1 starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Find out what happened right here as the UFC 221 undercard recaps roll in real-time:

Damien Brown vs. Dong Hyun Kim

The FS1 headliner pitted Australian brawler Brown (17-12) against South Korean knockout artist Kim (16-8-3). Kim looked to attack Brown’s lead leg early and often. Brown returned favor and knocked Kim to the ground with his own leg kick. Surprisingly, not many punches were thrown to this point in the fight, although Kim was able to bloody the Australian’s left eye towards the end of the first round. In the second, Brown opened up with an overhand right counter. Kim would find a home for tight right hand inside followed by a short left. Both men exchanged hard leather during an inside exchange, allowing Brown to score some valuable points. Kim returned favored with a nice jab. Brown would drop Kim again with another leg kick before the end of the frame. In the third and final round, Kim score a quick one-two combo. Brown returned with a nice body kick before nearly catching Kim with a head kick. Brown launched a few body kicks before finding a home for a right hand. Neither lightweight showed much urgency, but did land methodically throughout the final few minutes. In the end, it was Kim who walked away with the split-decision nod.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Rob Wilkinson vs. Israel Adesanya

In one of the most anticipated fights of the evening, undefeated kickboxing sensation Adesanya (12-0) made his Octagon debut against talented Australian middleweight Wilkinson (11-2). The UFC newcomer came out switching stances and landing a nice leg kick then a left hand. Wilkinson closed the distance and put the striker against the cage before looking for a standing guillotine choke. Adesanya was eventually taken down but quickly got back to his feet. When the action broke, Adesanya started to land some offense, including a lead hook into a right hand. In Round 2, Adesanya opened up with a slick high kick that just missed. Adesanya followed that up with a sticking jab. The former kickboxer then dug a hard left into Wilkinson’s body before landing a sharp knee in the clinch. Wilkinson closed distance again and desperately tried to take “Style Bender” to the canvas. Adesanya kept the pressure up with big combinations, knees to the head, and uppercuts inside. Wilkinson wasn’t able to defend for too much longer as the referee jumped in for the TKO stoppage.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Jeremy Kennedy vs. Alexander Volkanovski

The only featherweight bout on the card saw rising Australian contender Volkanovski (17-1) put his 13-fight win streak on the line against undefeated Canadian youngster Kennedy (11-1). The longer Kennedy opened up from range before sneaking in for a takedown attempt. Volkanovski defended nicely before landing his own takedown via sweep. Volkanovski started to score short elbows and punches down the pipe as Kennedy struggled to cover up. Kennedy didn’t offer much outside of a few transitions with his legs and his lack of defense really started to show on his face. In Round 2, Volkanovski quickly secured another takedown along the cage. Kennedy returned to his feet before eating a hard knee inside by Volkanovski. The Canadian tried again to grab a leg and take Volkanovski down, but Volkanovski remained heavy, switched his stance, and ended up in top control. From there, “The Great” blasted Kennedy with thudding body shots that went unanswered. Volkanovski followed that up with nasty elbows to the side of the head as the points continued to rack up. Kennedy tried to defend in turn, but the pressure was too much. Volkanovski would earn the second-round TKO finish with seconds left in the round.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Jussier Formiga vs. Ben Nguyen

In the opening FS1 preliminary bout, ranked flyweight contenders Formiga (21-5) and Nguyen (18-7) locked horns in a crucial 125-pound matchup. Nguyen opened up with a flurry that back the Brazilian against the cage. Formiga fought the hands well and landed a counter punch off the break. Formiga then caught Nguyen with a nasty counter right hand as Nguyen rushed inside yet again. The Brazilian tripped Nguyen and landed in side control. Formiga quickly and effortlessly moved over into full mount. From there, the grappling expert landed hard ground-and-pound before the first bell sounded. In Round 2, Formiga suffered a cut on his forehead during an early exchange that started to drip down his face. The Brazilian shook it off and landed a nice spinning kick to the body. As Nguyen swung a looping hook, Formiga quickly changed levels and dragged the rising contender to the canvas, quickly passing to half guard. Nguyen was able to get back to his feet, which is a win in its own right. Nguyen followed that up some good strikes on the feet, but unfortunately suffered an eye poke towards the end of the frame. In the third round, Nguyen landed some short punches inside, including an uppercut that stung Formiga. Out of nowhere, Formiga blasted Nguyen with a devastating spinning back fist that dropped Nguyen in his tracks. Formiga jumped on Nguyen’s back and quickly sunk in the late rear-naked choke finish.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Ross Pearson vs. Mizuto Hirota

UFC veteran Pearson (20-14, 1 NC) headlined the Fight Pass portion of the event and tried to stop a four-fight losing streak when he took on Japanese veteran Hirota (18-9-2). Pearson opened up with a nice body kick before sticking Hirota with a stiff jab. “Real Deal” then caught Hirota with a nice counter left inside. Hirota kept his hands low with confidence but Pearson started to slip his shots and scored good points. In Round 2, Pearson continued to find a home for his counter left inside, although Hirota was able to score damage to the Englishman’s body and lead leg. Hirota would add to his efforts with a nice jab, but Pearson landed the more powerful punches in most exchanges. Pearson kept the pressure going with quick lefts coming in and impeccable shot selection. Hirota returned favor with a huge right hand that buckled Pearson and opened a cut. In Round 3, Pearson landed a nice head-body combination inside. Hirota came back with more lead leg kicks, but Pearson kept busy by sticking his left uppercut on the counter. Both men started to throw with more power with under 30 seconds remaining, but nothing significant landed for either lightweight. In the end, it was Pearson who did enough on the judges’ scorecards to walk away with the unanimous decision win.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Teruto Ishihara vs. Jose Quinonez

In the lone bantamweight matchup of the evening, Team Alpha Male standout Ishihara (10-5-2) aimed to capture his fourth Octagon victory when he met wily 27-year-old Mexican fighter Quinonez (7-2). Quinonez opened up with a few low leg kicks before securing a brief takedown. Ishihara was pinned against the cage but defended nicely to limit damage. That was until Quinonez took Ishihara’s back and secured a tight body triangle. Ishihara broke the lock and got back to his feet. From there, Ishihara was finally able to land some offense in the clinch before tripping Quinonez to the canvas. He also landed a flush left hook before the first bell. In Round 2, Ishihara came up high with a head kick. Quinonez responded with a whipping front leg kick. Ishihara decided to close the distance and landed a nice takedown along the cage. Quinonez came back with more leg kicks on the feet, but it was Ishihara who led the way with pace and persistence. Ishihara then landed a big counter left that dropped Quinonez before the end of the round. The third frame saw Quinonez land a nice right hand over the top. Ishihara offered a lot of feints and remained mobile before and after throwing strikes. Quinonez was able to land a partial head kick before blocking a Ishihara takedown attempt. Quinonez opened up a little more with his hands down the stretch and was able to score some valuable points. Fortunately for Quinonez, his efforts scored him a unanimous decision win.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Luke Jumeau vs. Daichi Abe

The opening bout of the evening saw New Zealand lightweight Jumeau (13-4) take on undefeated Japanese prospect Abe (6-1). Jumeau opened up with a nice one-two down the pipe, as Abe immediately started to leave his hands down by his hip. Jumeau came back with a big overhand right before catching Abe with a nice left hook. Abe was able to land a short right after Jumeau caught his leg from a kick. The Japanese striker then piled on more right hands along the cage as Jumeau covered up. Abe then dropped Jumeau with a right counter inside, but the New Zealand native stayed alive. In Round 2, Jumeau came out quickly to secure a takedown, although Abe got right back up. Jumeau landed a painful body kick. Abe was waiting for his counter shots to land, but Jumeau showed solid head movement inside to avoid most of the attacks. The third and final frame saw Jumeau continue his comeback on the feet. Abe tried to counter when the opportunity presented itself, but he kept loading up on his shots. Jumeau was able to sneak in a slick head kick that caused some swelling over Abe’s right eye. Abe came back with a strike that seemed to be a punch, but the fight was stopped after Jumeau protested it was an eye poke. Jumeau snapped a few body kicks in after the action resumed, following his efforts up with a leg kick that buckled Abe. In the end, it was Jumeau who did enough over the final 10 minutes to walk away with the unanimous decision win.

Find out what happened right here as the UFC Fight Night 125 undercard recaps roll in real-time:

Sergio Moraes vs. Tim Means

In the FS2 “Prelims” headliner, welterweight submission expert Moraes (13-3-1) looked to bounce back from a recent knockout loss to Kamaru Usman when he took on wily veteran Means (27-10-1, 1 NC). Moraes opted to pull guard 30 seconds into the fight and dragged the bigger Means on top of him. Means defended nicely and got back to his feet, where Moraes started to catch “Dirty Bird” with countless power hooks. In Round 2, Moraes continued his assault on the inside, launching looping punches every time Means came into range. Means worked on the outer edges with his jab and short kicks to the Brazilian’s lead leg. Means caught Moraes with a stiff left hand, but Moraes responded with hard shots to the body. Means came back with a combination on the exit, which finally pushed Moraes back. In Round 3, Means started to push the pace and move forward, but Moraes kept swinging for the fences and created some hesitation in the veteran. Moraes came back with a big kick to the body and head, as Means took his time with his lead jab, hard knees inside, and digging punches to the body. Means kept landing and really started to break down the Brazilian, but Moraes dropped to the canvas and invited the grappling exchange. In the end, it was Moraes who walked away with the split-decision win.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Alan Patrick vs. Damir Hadzovic

The lone lightweight bout on the card saw Brazilian veteran Patrick (15-1) lock horns with Bosnian knockout artist Hadzovic (11-4). Both men exchanged early inside, but it was Patrick who secured a quick takedown after Hadzovic bolted in for a knee. Hadzovic returned favor by landing a hard short elbow in the clinch. Patrick came back and scored another takedown, but Hadzovic quickly threatened with a slick arm bar attempt off his back. Patrick shook it off and landed heavy ground-and-pound from full guard. In Round 2, Patrick aggressively pushed the pace with combinations on the go before going back to the takedown along the cage. Patrick took Hadzovic’s back and nearly sunk in the rear-naked choke finish, but Hadzovic defended nicely with his chin tucked and his hands busy. Patrick would ride out the position for the remaining minutes of the frame. The third and final round saw Patrick land a nice flying knee inside. Hadzovic returned favor with a few body shots before the Brazilian yet again dragged him to the ground. Patrick was still unable to pass Hadzovic’s guard, but Hadzovic did little to transition off his back. The Brazilian kept the pressure on and worked for another submission finish, but Hadzovic held on, fought the hands, and refused to give in to a stoppage. Instead, Patrick would have to settle for the unanimous decision win.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Maia Stevenson vs. Polyana Viana

Streaking women’s flyweight veteran Stevenson (6-5) made her Octagon debut against top-flight Brazilian finisher Vianna (10-1), who has finished all of her professional wins by knockout or submission. Stevenson opened up with a nice combination before Viana secured a quick takedown off a counter right hand. The Brazilian then looked to lock up an arm bar, but a bloodied Stevenson fought well. Viana did more work along the cage with hard knees in the clinch before dragging Stevenson back to the canvas and scoring some heavy ground-and-pound. Stevenson was forced to give up her back and Viana wasted no time sinking in the rear-naked choke in Round 1.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Iuri Alcantara vs. Joe Soto

Sparking off the FS2 preliminary card was a bantamweight matchup pitting former UFC title challenger Soto (18-7) against Brazilian veteran Alcantara (36-9, 1 NC). Alcantara landed a heavy body kick early, while Soto shot inside to close the distance. Alcantara kept the pressure on with body shots that hurt the former title challenger. The Brazilian followed his efforts up with hard elbows inside before Soto dropped to the canvas and the referee jumped in for the early TKO stoppage.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Joseph Morales

The opening bout of the evening saw undefeated flyweight prospect Figueiredo (14-0) take on 23-year-old finisher Morales (9-1). Figueiredo swept early for a quick takedown. Morales did well to tie the hands up and land a few upkicks when there was spacing. Figueiredo kept the pressure on with some good stiff punches and elbows from full guard. When the action returned the feet Figueiredo caught Morales with a sticky left jab that dropped the youngster. Figueiredo quickly went for a guillotine choke, but Morales hung on until the end of the frame. In Round 2, Figueiredo connected on a superman punch before attacking the body of Morales. Morales tried to lock up a guillotine during an exchange inside, but Figueiredo sneaked his head out and gained top control. Morales did a good job once again limiting damage. Morales landed a big counter right hand when the action returned to the feet, but Figueiredo returned favor with a nasty left hook that dropped Morales. Morales covered up as Figueiredo rained down heavy ground-and-pound until the referee jumped in for the second-round TKO stoppage.

Live UFC 220 stream, online video updates – YouTube

My name is Flyin’ Brian J and I will be providing real-time updates during the entire UFC 220 pay-per-view (PPV) main card this evening (Sat., Jan. 20, 2018) during a LIVE YouTube telecast (subscribe to MMAmania.com’s channel right here) that will stream in the video player above.

For some reason (I’m assuming inflation mixed with greed), UFC has upped its PPV price from $ 60 to $ 65. And although the main- and co-main event fights (Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou and Daniel Cormier vs. Volkan Oezdemir) are absolutely tantalizing match ups, the rest of the card hidden behind a pay wall isn’t all that spectacular … on paper. That is why I’ve decided to provide a FREE (and legal) alternative to shelling out your hard-earned cash. I might be uglier than Joe Proctor with a gargantuan hematoma, but I will do my best to keep you informed on the bizarre, remarkable and spine-tingling action.

Join me. Perhaps we can even enjoy some delectable craft beer together!
