Sometimes, the UFC gets knocked for not having enough finishes in their fights with close matches always being forced to go to the judges’ scorecards. That was not the case at UFC Fight Night 50 on Friday as Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza looked dominant in the middleweight division by choking out Gegard Mousasi in the main event.
Souza looked strong in the first two rounds, using both takedowns and strong striking to confuse his opponent and locked up a guillotine choke to end it in the third.
In the co-main event, Ben Rothwell finished Alistair Overeem in the first round after landing a particularly brutal blow to knockout out his much-maligned opponent.
Below are complete results from the night:
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza def. Gegard Mousasi via submission (guillotine choke) at 4:30 of Round 3
