Joe Solecki has just added a major name to his UFC mixed martial arts resume on ABC 2.

In a two-fight battle, Joe Solecki defeated Jim Miller (32-16, 1 NC, 21-15, 1 NC UFC) for the better of the two rounds, winning unanimously against the 37- Octagon veteran wears light collision at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon. After 15 minutes, Solecki (11-2, 3-0) received a score of 29-28, 29-28 and 30-27 from the judges of cageside.

Most of the fight was contested on the carpet. Solecki seemed to be faster in the early stages of Round 1, but Miller was able to fill a elimination and take first place for the last two minutes of the period. The fight took a similar form for the last two frames, only Solecki was the one who dictated the action, as he secured the abolitions, was left with mediocre land and pounds and Miller’s guard was neutralized.

Miller has lost three of his last four fights.

Ex-KSW Champ Gamrot stops Holtzman

Former Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki champion Mateusz Gamrot won his first UFC triumph with a bang, stopping Scott Holtzman by knockout in his lightweight bout. The 30-year-old member of the American Top Team brought the show to 1:22 in the second round, sending Holtzmann to his second consecutive defeat in the KO.

Gamrot (18-1, 1-1 UFC) disappointed his opponent in Round 1 with end-to-end movement, combining right-handers and subtractions when he went on the attack. The “Gamer” found his opening at the beginning of the second period, when he threw Holtzman (14-5, 7-5 UFC) to the knee with a combination of two. Gamrot followed his husband on the carpet and turned with about four to five more right hands before the competition stopped.


Makdessi wins the offensive duel against the Bahamons

The wealth of John Makdessi experience from the UFC paid off against a newly arrived Octagon.

The Roufusport veteran has reached a significant height and reached a disadvantage to win a triumphant decision over Chilean fighter Ignacio Bahamondes in a fun light case. Sal D’Amato scored 29-28 for Makdessi and Dave Hagen had it 30-27 for “The Bull”, while Derek Cleary submitted 29-28 for the Bahamas.

The Bahamas (11-4, 0-1 UFC) started quickly, changing positions while landing a variety of long punches and low kicks against his opponent. While the volume was impressive, Makdessi (18-7, 11-7 UFC) turned the tide when he countered his enemy with a counter right in Round 1. From there, he punched near the fence and hit him again. Although the Bahamas survived, Makidi led the dance for most of the way, controlling the fight with pressure and crisp straight punches.

Returning Danho Wallops De Castro

Jarjis Danho made a triumphant return to the Octagon after more than four years away, as he knocked out Yorgan De Castro in a heavyweight bout. The end came 3:02 in Round 1, sending De Castro to his third consecutive defeat in the context of the promotion based in Las Vegas.

Danho (6-1-1, 1-1-1 UFC) started with a measured approach, turned abroad and landed a low kick, while De Castro (6-3, 1-3 UFC) looked for counters. As De Castro stepped up his aggression, “Man Mountain” found its opening. Danho caught his opponent coming forward with a small right hand on the side of his head and De Castro fell awkwardly on his right foot. Danho landed another hammerfist before referee Mike Beltran could press for De Castro.

Danho had not played in a draw with Cristian Colombo in UFC Fight Night 93 on September 3, 2016.

Shore Outgrinds Azure takes Split’s decision

Former Cage Warriors Fighting Championship winner Jack Shore kept Hunter Azure in an exhausting fragment of small weight, winning a competitive split decision to remain undefeated. Two judges submitted 30-27 scorecards in favor of Shore (14-0, 3-0 UFC), while a third saw it 29-28 for Azure.

While the first two appearances of the Shore Octagon ended in drowning victories in the back, he met with much greater resistance against Azure (9-2, 2-2 UFC), who fought him with the majority of the match. The Welshman known as “Tank” did his best job in Round 3, when he dropped the Azure, soon got his back and checked most of the skeleton to win.

Salges Edges Griffin

Luis Saldana got into a tough fight with a unanimous decision for Jordan Griffin in a battle with Dana White’s astringents. All three judges cast 29-28 votes in favor of the 30-year-old MMA Lab export.

Saldana set the tone in Round 1 when he landed on multiple straight precision shots and threw Griffin with a hard low kick. Griffin responded with a blistering rhythm, briefly crushing his enemy with pressure and removals, while threatening with a tight back-naked drowning at the end of the second trend.

Saldana (15-6, 1-0 UFC) regained control in Round 3, winning the battle of positioning and chasing another drowning attempt by Griffin (18-9, 1-4 UFC). Saldana made the victory for the first time in his professional term.

Jung dominates the knight with the abolitions, the control

Da Un Jung had complete control over William Knight, winning a unanimous decision behind repeated repeals and suffocating supremacy in a light heavyweight competition. All three cageside judges submitted scores (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) in favor of the representative of the top Korean team, who is undefeated in his last 14 professional matches.

Early on, Knight (9-2, 1-1 UFC) showed inability to defend Jung’s elimination from the match, and South Korea dropped their opponent on several occasions. By the end of Round 1, the Knight was bleeding from his mouth and was clearly tired. The worst happened only in the second frame, when Jung (14-2-1, 3-0-1 UFC) managed to get Knight to carry his weight, get his back and hammer away with fists and elbows in head from the rear bracket.

The American showed a sense of urgency in Round 3, as he threw many elevated rights as Jung tried to close the distance. However, Jung was able to make a level change and plant Knight on the canvas once again, where he managed to lead the fight.

Kasanganay rebound, Chokes Out Palatnikov

A fight away from being at the end of a viral knockout loss against Joaquin Buckley, Impa Kasanganya has shown he has a short memory.

Dana White’s Contender Alum was successful in her welterweight debut, defeating Sasha Palatnikov (6-3, 1-1 UFC) with a 26-second back drowning in Round 2 of the original card game. Kasanganay (9-1, 2-1 UFC) threw his opponent with his right hand early in the second frame and then jumped on Palatnikov’s back during a fight to lock in the maneuver that ended the fight. The compression of the Sanford MMA product was so tight that he did not have to put on his hooks to pull out the tattoo. Advertising
