UFC 171 Results: Trevino Survives Tough First Round, Gets Decision Win Over Forte

March 15, 2014 5:00 pm by Jonathan Kirschner

Renee Forte missed weight for this bout but still appeared dominant in the opening round. Forte landed a takedown and almost immediately took the back of Francisco Trevino. Forte was close to locking in the rear naked choke, but he could not slide his forearm under the chin on Trevino. The constant jockeying for position likely tired Forte out early on, as he was extremely tired at the start of the second.

Round two showed much more action from Trevino as he picked apart his tired opponent. He took him down a couple times and even though the takedowns led to nothing, it certainly helped as this fight went to decision.

Renee Forte worked to stop the fight in the third round with a rear naked choke again, but he was simply too tired to lock it in. Trevino outstruck Forte in the third round which is what likely led to his decision victory.

Francisco Trevino improved his record to 12-0 with tonight’s victory.
