A welterweight scrap between Alex Oliveira and Ryan LaFlare took place on tonight’s UFC on FOX 25 prelims live from Long Island, New York.
Round one begins and Oliveira misses with a spinning back kick. LaFlare shoots in for a takedown but Alex is able to sprawl and defend the shot. Ryan presses “Cowboy” against the cage and looks to score a trip. He does but Alex rolls for an armbar. Ryan is able to pull out his arm and winds up in side control. This is not where Oliveira wants to be. LaFlare looks to lock in a choke but Oliveira is able to escape. Ryan is still working from side control here. Two minutes remain in the opening round. Alex is able to scramble back to half guard. Not much offence from LaFlare here. Ryan steps back in to side control. Round one comes to an end.
Round two begins and Oliveira lands a good low kick. He presses forward with a combination. A nice right hand now from “Cowboy”. He goes inside with a leg kick. Oliveira circles and then comes forward with a combination. LaFlare shoots for a takedown and “Cowboy” catches him with a massive right hand. LaFlare drops to the canvas and it is all over.
