UFC Fight Night Results - Miocic vs. Maldonado


ufc-fight-night-miocic-vs-maldonadoThe Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Fight Night series continued its run with an exciting card televised live on Fox Sports 1 network.  The live event took place in Sao Palo, Brazil.  It was a great night of action and here is how it all went down:

Featherweights Rony Jason (15-4) and Robbie "Problems" Peralta (17-4) got things going on during the main card in a bout settled for three rounds.  Jason (Brazil) and Peralta (U.S.A.) focused on a vertical game early.  The American bullied Jason into the cage and worked knees.  After a brief trip to the mat, Peralta came quickly to his feet.  The Brazilian managed a hard spinning elbow but "Problems" took it well.  The American managed some solid leg strikes.  Both fighters grew tentative towards the end of the round.  Peralta opened the second with legs kicks that found their mark on Jason’s legs.    After a flurry from Peralta, Jason managed a takedown and was on top but had trouble securing the full mount.  The American saw a bit of trouble after Jason searched for a triangle but was not successful.  "Problems" managed to escape and come to his feet.  Again, the action slowed in the final minute but got heated with less than 10 seconds left.  The third featured more standup as both men attempted to take control.  Jason was determined but the American was able to secure a split decision victory.      

Welterweight s Demian Maia (18-6-1) and Alexander "Bad Boy" Yakovlev (21-4-1) continued the action in contest slated for three heats. Yakovlev, representing Russia, come out circling both sides while Maia, of Brazil, stalked.  Maia, a grappling wizard, succeeded a takedown and quickly held a full mount.  The Brazilian landed fists to the body and elbows to the face.  The Russian desperately wanted to escape but was not able to come to his feet, so Yakovlev survived to see the second.  Maia was able to take the Russian to the mat early in the second and again was in control via a full mount.  The Brazilian was peppering his foe with hard hammer strikes.  Yakovlev’s dexterity was evident as he escaped the grappler’s clutches and established his own mount.  The Russian managed some elbows but the round ended.  The last round saw the "Bad Boy" looking confident as he landed crushing kicks to the legs of the Brazilian.  Yakovlev landed some hard punches and appeared in control but Maia took the Russian down to the cage floor.  The Brazilian landed elbows and held Yakovlev down.  By the time the Russian was able to escape, it was too late; the fight came to an end and Demian Maia walked away with a unanimous decision win.     

Ultimate Fighter middleweight finalists Marcio "Lyoto" Alexandre (13-0) and Warlley  Alves (7-0) met looking to settle things in the Octagon.  Both men, hailing from Brazil, shot out of the gate filled with nervous energy and ended on the mat.  The fight came vertical and Alves pushed Alexandre to the cage and smothered his nemesis.  Alves took "Lyoto" down and controlled the actions by side mount.  Alexandre was able to get erect but was, again, smothered against the cage fence.  Alves landed hard kicks to the body and continued to be aggressive.  The second saw Alves continue to be the bully as he successfully landed heavy ground-and-pounds strikes while maintaining the top position with ease.  Alexandre was able to land a kick here and there, but could not sustain any kind of offense during the round.  Within the first 20 seconds of the last stanza, Alves landed a hard counter right hand that ended with Alexandre on the canvas.  Alves followed up with a guillotine which ended the battle.

The co-main event featured Vitor "Lex Luthor" Miranda battling Antonio "Cara de Sapato" Carlos Jr. (4-0) in a three round heavyweight scrap for the Ultimate Fighter Brazil title. Carlos Jr. was warned early by the referee in the opening heat after he landed a hard knee to the groin of Miranda.  "Cara de Sapato" attacked with a flurry of shots and took Miranda to the mat.  "Lex Luthor" was looking to escape but Carlos Jr. kept smashing Miranda to the canvas and against the cage fence.  The pace slowed in the last minute as Miranda, a highly experienced kick boxer, kept his distance and landed hard leg strikes. The second saw a slow pace after Carlos Jr. took Miranda to the cage floor but had minimal success with ground-and-pound.  After a failed heal hook by "Cara de Sapato", Miranda successfully mounted.  After several smooth passes, "Lex Luthor" was able to land some hard elbows to the body and head.  The third was a mirror of the second: Carlos Jr. scored a quick power takedown.  Miranda could not find a way to get his younger competitor off of him long enough to get any offense going.  Carlos Jr. was efficient, transitioning from a defensive position to an effective ground-and-pound.  With a minute left, Carlos Jr. was working a rear naked choke before transitioning to a side mount.  Carlos Jr. closed the contest in control.  The inexperienced Carlos Jr. took a well-deserved unanimous decision.   

The final combat of the night showcased American Stipe Miocic (11-1) taking on Brazilian Fabio Maldonado (21-6) in a five round tilt.  Maldonado, moving up from light heavyweight to heavyweight, was quickly hurt by a quick left hook from Miocic.  Maldonado recovered but was quickly sent to the ground courtesy of an overhand right.  The American attacked which prompted the referee to jump in and call a halt to the contest.  It was a quick win for Miocic.
