The dust has settled in San Antonio and the crowd left satisfied after watching 6 exciting fights on the main card!
The first two fights were extremely close as Joe Ellenberger overcame a first round setback and rallied in round two and three to get the 29-28 split decision. The next fight was just as close as Clint Hester boxed his way to a 29-28 split decision against the jiu-jitsu ace Antonio Braga Neto. The third fight of the night saw Ricardo Lamas got back into title contention after dominating Hacran Dias to a 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 unanimous decision. In the fourth fight of the night, Cezar Ferreira survived a late 3rd round onslaught by Andrew Craig and got the 29-28, 29-28, 30-27 unanimous decision. In the co-main event, Kelvin Gastelum got a 29-28 across the board unanimous decision against Nicholas Musoke. In that fight Gastelum showed standup that was very noticeable and in the post-fight, he apologized to the fans and the UFC for missing weight. Finally in the main event, Cub Swanson won a 5 round war against Jeremy Stephens by getting the unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 48-47)
6 wins in a row for Cub Swanson! Will he finally get his title shot? Only the future will tell! Until then, stay beautiful, SciFighters!
