Demian Maia def Ryan LaFlare via unanimous decision. LaFlare had no answer for Maia takedown defense. Also LaFlare had a chance to win fight in 5th round but due to fatigue, he couldn’t finish Maia. This is LaFlare’s first loss. I had pick wrong because I though LaFlare was going to bring it tonight, I guess I was wrong.
Erick Silva def Josh Koscheck via guillotine choked in 4:21 of Round 1.
As I mentioned on episode 53 of Choked Out Radio, if Koscheck loses this fight, he is done and I still believe it. Koscheck huge contributor to UFC especially during season 1 of TUF.
Leonardo Santos def Tony Martin submission rear naked choke 2:29 seconds of Round 2. Santos jiu-jitsu prevailed in this bout. I picked him to win matchup on podcast as well.
Amanda Nunes dad Shayna Baszler TKO Strikes, 1:56 of Round 1. Nunes striking continues to improve and for Shayna, still has not won in the UFC. She has been around the sport for a while. Not sure what is next for her. Another correct pick for me.
Gilbert Burns def Alex Oliveira via armbar 4:14 of Round 3. Burns was losing entire fight. He tried to finish with an omoplata but when he lost that he never gave up, held on and eventually scrambled into an armbar. Great finish.
Godofredo Pepey def Andre Fili via triangle choke, 3:14 of Round 1. Fili tapped a few times and finally the referee saw it and stopped it . This is the same idiot referee that stopped Silva vs Dober earlier after Dober was working an escape.
