These results will be posted live. The UFC Fight Night 35 main card begins at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Round 1: A very obvious height discrepancy forced Sicilia to search for Miller’s head. Miller did well to keep his head protexted and out of the way. Long jabs and a follow up cross from Miller did well to keep Sicilia on the outside. Miller would land a jab on Sicilia who missed by what looked like over a foot on the counter. Miller did a great job of using the range to make Sicilia’s first round a frustrating one.
Round 2: Miller kept up his long punches and a damaged left eye on Sicilia opened him up to a right hand from Miller. This punch rocked Sicilia and Miller hit him on the advance several more times. Sicilia shot in for a takedown but was put on his back. Milled then worked in to mount at which point Sicilia gave up his back. Miller took the opportunity and sunk in a rear-naked choke and won the fight.
Official Result: Cole Miller defeats Sam Sicilia via Submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:54 of Round 2.
