welcome of ufc coming up next it’s a ufc featherweight division fight [Applause] well this about has decorated a kickboxer as has come into this division in some time dc and if we get a kickboxing match tonight he ain’t losing he has a championship level kickboxer a guy that can stand in the pocket and trade and kick and punch with anyone he’s constantly throwing things from as close as you can get he’s comfortable throwing leg kicks he will drive these into your body but it’s the aggressiveness and the ability and willingness to stand in the pocket and trade that makes him truly truly special i think that is what separates kickboxers the high level yeah from everyone else he understands distance as well as any striker in this division of course that is a byproduct of a lifetime of repetitions in the kickboxing space well you can argue this is the most influential martial artist of all time the great bruce lee making his walk to the octagon here tonight everybody wants to be bruce lee they say they want to be like mike if you’re a fighter you wanted to be like bruce lee you wanted to be that fast you wanted to be that charismatic you wanted to have an ability to just freeze your opponents your speed your movement just the diversity and the attacks that you can give your opponents would just confuse people i mean i watched him beat a seven foot kareem at to bar to stay undefeated right if you can do that you can do anything i fear not the man who has practiced ten thousand kicks once but i fear the man who has practiced one kick ten thousand times conversely in a nutshell just so wise or tail the tape for this featherweight fight so these fighters relatively close in age just a year apart with similar height and some differences in reach now for the official introductions here’s first this is of the evening when the action begins a referee in charge herb team and now this is the moment you’ve all been waiting for live from the sold out madison square garden arena in new york city [Music] it’s time five rounds in the ufc featherweight division fighting out of the blue corner this man is a kickboxer making his professional debut here tonight he says

he stands five feet seven inches tall weighing in at 145 pounds fighting out of los angeles california bruce the drugs [Music] you’ve been given your instructions in the dressing room protect yourself at all times follow my instructions you will have a clean fight touch gloves just make it official ready all right so here we go with the start of round one i can tell how excited you are for this match-up seems to be a striking advantage on one side but maybe this is a big time fight it feels like a big moment for both of these guys careers who is going to be able to implement their game plan the best in this matchup between these two big-time athletes nice defense there huge flop well perhaps a sign of things to come as he lands a kick there nice kick landed by this gentleman all right here we go early round one we talk about wrestling being a great equalizer in mma but length and reach is another one he’s got a great jab we’ll see if he can employ it tonight you have got to be born with it right you don’t get taller when you’re a tall guy you have to understand make your skill set match your physical abilities and this guy has done this tremendously [Applause] trying to do damage now with the kick that’s a miss there’s no tail on that leg [Applause] and just inches away from landing one of those big right hands oh it’s a hell of a kick right there he told us thursday that he was going to be kick heavy tonight and that is certainly a step in the right direction he is landing that strike he’s very effective with it nice slip encounter there by lee [Applause] trying to find a home for that right hand [Applause] he’s throwing every part of himself into these big leg kicks big kick land oh huge strike lands there somehow his opponent stayed upright i mean he’s still on his feet but he’s not up by much oh and he lands another leg kick there i have a novel idea maybe the opponent should try to check one of these he’s got to try to check him but he can’t jon because there’s no line though there’s no tail and when he feels his opponent is getting the beat on his leg kicks he’ll just pop a jab up get the hands up to block the face blast the leg kick on the bottom it’s unbelievable to watch a guy that is so diverse and has such a great understanding of landing these leg kicks and he caught the kick we’ll see what he can do with it oh head kick lands he’s hurt lee’s strike there is blocked nice job by the [Applause] with an effective defense there and at least in that situation it paid to have the advantage in which big ball for punchline that will get back oh massive kick everything behind it [Applause] action that comes from him throwing that kick wash knees to the body [Applause] beautiful leg kick throw really making good use of his reach advantage there with that punch [Applause] well done to block that powerful kick to the body look at how he turns his hip into that leg [Applause] both fighters hanging down in the pocket and both landing oh man how many head kicks can one man absorb before getting separated from his conscience one normally this guy has a great chin but if he takes any more he’s gonna be sleeping he lands a glancing right hand upstairs [Applause] final seconds here in round one blocks the shot horn sounds for the end of round one all right let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from those previous five minutes dc and uh no padding no glove on that foot no glove no padding and look at the hip action when he throws those kicks he’s not only kicking just for field he’s really trying to damage his opponent and as the fight goes longer you will start to see it take an effect all right here we go as our next round gets underway his strong leg so much power that even when he doesn’t throw it full throttle you see he’s able to inflict damage we’ll see if we can keep it going here in the street he doesn’t throw at full power but even when he faints it he draws out reactions from his opponents because they don’t want to get hit with any more of those kicks it’s a sight to behold he has a commitment to kick it tonight and it shows and he’s looking for that left hand just missed big punchline over the top how’s he gonna follow this one though [Applause] that kick blocked by lee and he landed the right hand there [Applause] nice jab by him there he’s going nose hunting tonight huh yeah he’s great with the jab and not only has a setup he really is trying to get damage off every time he throws his punch good job good series of strikes by him there great job of mixing it up staying active keeping busy doing great work [Applause] oh head kick attempt head movement prevents it from landing all right well he’s landed some good shots tonight but there’s no three piece there’s no soda more often than not it’s one and done he’s not even getting a combination i mean if you’re gonna sit there at the drive-thru order a combination take the soda with your food give him the right hand behind the jab give him the hook behind the right hand jab right hand hook that’s two pieces of chicken and a biscuit finish them off with the uppercut that is your soda i mean come on man let this guy have the whole thing [Applause] liver kick if you take those kicks it’s going to shut your body off beautiful jab i am there really taking advantage of what is an obvious edge in reach [Applause] well he’s really starting to land a high number of strikes here in the second round no denying that he has taken the message from his corner and picked up the pace here in round two [Applause] oh huge block [Applause] great punch land with so much power and now they are throwing both sides with conviction [Applause] kick to the body by league much improved defensively as he blocks the shot lee gets caught with that punch not the easiest guy in the world to hit but he got caught there [Applause] oh big roundhouse attempt just misses that could have been lights out right hand upstairs [Applause] i mean look at the commitment to kick him in this fight big roundhouse now just misses [Applause] lee gets caught by that straight punch his defense has abandoned him tonight big liver kick lands under the elbow pretty nice knee there dc great job finding the opportunity to land that strike well at this point he’s got to be way up on the judge’s scorecards clearly winning the fight and largely has gotten it done with his striking tonight he got it done with his strike he fought well behind his jab but it was a significant strike that really did make an impact on the judge’s mind what a punch man doesn’t take a lot of these kicks to produce redness look at the left side of his body there nasty oh and he continues to pour it on we mentioned earlier the aggression with his striking got to be careful to knock gas out here but at least you have to admire the approach look at him flip his hip into that kick 15 seconds lee gets caught by the straight punch oh pretty good technique as he lands the sidekick dc real nice technique to land that sidekick he did a great job getting that leg up right two rounds in the books what are you doing out there let’s shake it off we need to do exactly what we did in the gym we want you to keep your hands up keep moving your head keep moving your feet cut those angles and let’s check all right let’s take a look back at some of the replays dc and if you like the kicking game that was the round for you yeah i mean he used his kicks beautifully he managed distance managed space and eventually those kicks started to really take an effect on his opponent and slow him down he has to stay the course next round my next round is underway d.c we talked about his powerful kicks how he attacks all sides of the body the head the legs pretty good start for him tonight that was so impressive to see someone fight almost predominantly with their legs and have that level of success well not only has he stayed aggressive as he was in the previous round landing a high volume of strikes but he’s also been efficient not just with his strikes but also with his body movement complete performance out of this fighter here tonight look at him lift his hip into that kick oh trying to turn out the lights with that roundhouse kick but just misses [Music] [Applause] my goodness [Applause] [Music] look at him working at trying to shut the liver down tried to go to the body but unable to connect oh massive head kick there we’ll see if he can finish [Music] [Applause] [Applause] that punch no good [Applause] really making good use of his reach advantage as he lands the straight punch there spinning back fist everything works off of the jab doubles up on it there just over three minutes to go now [Applause] he loaded up there on that high kick though he is really starting to apply a lot of pressure here down the stretch not as much offense earlier in the fight he is making up for lost time now [Applause] watch the shot to the body he’s very tricky [Applause] [Music] oh bleeding from his cheek now damage done over and over he’s landing these big body kicks look at how he turns his hip over when he throws that kick oh shot to the body connects there he hasn’t really thrown too many body strikes in this fight but now as this fight goes on he is not discriminating working the body and those shots are going to count [Applause] try to establish that jab oh what a punch [Applause] [Music] [Applause] oh he’s got that right hand going tonight dc connected with it there he’s thrown so many left jabs to throw that right punch straight down the pipe it’s unreal [Applause] big one so he’s really starting to put together some significant body shots here these are going to take their toll as this fight goes up [Applause] oh vicious kick to the outside of that lead leg you got to start checking these man check these kicks you’re going to be limping around the octagon very shortly check yourself before you wreck yourself [Applause] just missing on the high kick there 20 seconds to go cable inches right there boy it was a good night if that landed that’s three rounds in the can we’re headed to the championship round right now we take a look back at some of the highlights he has had his kicking game going early and often tonight i mean on point right he knew that this was going to be a way for him to take control of this fight he’s used those kicks to really put him out ahead and i’m not sure if his opponent has the ability to adjust and stop him from landing these over and over [Applause] all right next round is underway and if you look at these two guys in between rounds it looks like they barely broke in a sweat both with good resting heart rate stamina still very high and you just have to log the efforts of these guys in training both men certainly noted cardio specialists but incredible that they would have this much in the tank after 10 plus minutes of fight [Applause] well most fighters can’t keep up this type of aggression and pace but you don’t have to worry about this guy he hasn’t really showed any signs of slowing down tonight and he connects there dc great job landing that punch oh hook shot blocked there by lee this fight is supposed to be over it might not be over now but it’s gonna be over very soon both fighters exchange in the pocket here [Applause] what a head kick oh the cut on that cheek is only getting worse his face is a mess look at him chopping the wood chop the wood with those leg kicks on he connects there his hands look good tonight so fast i mean this guy has tremendous hand speed oh continuing to work the body to great effect [Applause] look at him driving into the holy body with that body big kick yeah he’s mixed it all up [Music] this fight’s gonna be open what a great way of mixing up his attack he didn’t stay the course he mixed it up he went high when his opponent thought he was going low and now he’s got him hurt very badly beautiful punch [Applause] he deserves this movie he’ll finish his fight he’s done he’s done it [Applause] jab hurt him a little bit nice body kick punch over the top hook attempt now blocked though by lee oh that’s gonna soften about massive knee to the body and he comes through with a big knee look at the turtle [Applause] 90 seconds to go now [Applause] just misses with the straight right oh big punch man trying to establish that jab once again i mean he’s cutting them down the side with these beautiful leg kicks under a minute now to go on the round [Applause] oh and he lands another punch there and you can tell at this point he is going right at that cut on his opponent right at the cut on the eye just making sure he knows that i’m going to be targeting it keep your hands up and when the hands go up he wouldn’t change the carpet down low trying to find finish oh and he lands a punch there good connection by him on that great connect so fast [Applause] bad all right so he lands a jab there pretty nicely done dc you can really control the fight just knowing how to fight behind your jack [Music] all right so his legendary chin holds up despite getting knocked down in that previous round dc take us through the highlight he’s as tough as they come there has not been a guy that can take shots like this most times the night would be over and gladly gladly over after you take a shot like this but this man is just too tough some people say he’s too tough for his own good he would not agree with you he wants to fight all right next round is now underway previous round not necessarily a tough act to follow pretty good pretty good round but not the best round sometimes that’s if you have fighters that are so evenly matched nice punch here [Applause] [Music] [Applause] big leg kick land [Applause] just misses with a left hook there very badly again [Applause] looking to land the leg kick now nice connection with a punch there it’s hard to recall time in the past that this boxing looks this sharp he’s never looked this good he does everything so well and he’s so calm he’s so calm in the face such a big spot oh he’s in trouble he’s hurt all right dominant position for him here full mount if you’re the bottom finder better start moving those hips dc oh you got to start moving those hips what you should do initially right is start to push at the knees push at the hips create some distance shrimp and try to recollect half guard half guard sucks but it’s much better than being mounted fully by your opponents oh swelling and blood you wonder if at some point that’s going to impact the breathing not a good situation for him here [Applause] working off of his back here looks like he may try to hip escape oh worked hard to get up again but he looks like he’s compromised under three minutes now to go in the fight [Applause] big knee there knee to the body trying to go to the body here unable to find the target [Applause] oh he needs to start looking to finish now because he’s got his opponent hurt very bad recovery man right back to his feet throwing that jab yet again out of range beautiful kick [Applause] he’s hurt he’s not impressive he’s got to go change that finish down now he blocks the punch [Applause] oh he’s got it going now nice connection there dc another punch lantern [Applause] real nice body keep landing beautiful combination there by lee all right well time is the enemy now dc and he’s really running out of it if he’s going to get his hand raised tonight he’s got to go forward he’s got to just throw everything at his opponents and try to find that punch or that kick that’s going to end the fight there is no time for strategy [Applause] [Music] under one minute remains in round five [Applause] [Music] [Applause] seconds remain in the round muay thai big punch from the clinch you can really limit the mobility of your opponent with those leg kicks [Applause] it up nicely in terms of staying heavy and also staying active next with the right nice one two there oh an educated jab there i could watch this dude jab all day i mean he’s so light on his feet and when he drops that jab it comes right back to his face what else can you say but what a fight all right so the fighters go the distance here tonight but it went a whole lot better for one of them than the other talk us through the replays champ some decisions are different than others and his striking really did separate him from the competition he fought so well in the stand-up game that he should get a very easy decision the official decision is in bruce buffer has it ladies and gentlemen after five rounds we go to the judge’s scorecards for decision all three judges for this contest 50 44. declaring the winner by unanimous decision [Applause] well he did not get the finish that he certainly prioritized when we sat down with him in our fighter meeting but a win is a win he gets it done by unanimous decision and he said he wanted to finish but sometimes your opponent’s not willing to play the game in those instances all you can do is control which control and that’s
