UFC 172: Jones vs Texiera
1 Attachment(s)
Pretty good card tonight but could be better, IMO. Glover Texiera hasn't lost in 20 fights and is going up against the best 205# fighter ever to grace the Octagon. We also get a look at Luke Rockhold who could be a contender for the middle weight belt held by Chris Weidman. Anyway, check out the links below for the matchups and talking points...

Takanori Gomi takes a unanimous decision (29-27 x 3) from his opponent Vallie Flagg. No head movement will lead to eyes swollen shut like VF had happen to his right eye.

Now up, Timothy Elliott vs Joseph Benevidez at flyweight (125#'s)

Rd 1- Elliott charges JB and fights out of a guillotine choke. Back to the feet and Elliott gets the takedown. Good scramble with JB in a Peterson-like ride but no good. Up again and Elliott takes him down again, though JB rolls him over and almost has a mounted guillotine. Now side mount but again full mount. Elliott tapped once Benevidez got mounted with that choke!! Elliott had to tap with his feet because his hands were pinned to his hops by JB.

Joseph Benevidez wins by tap out via guillotine choke in round 1.
