The first bout of the UFC’s Sunday morning trip to Stockholm occurred at lightweight, where former Bellator title challenger Marcin Held took on the dangerous Damir Hadzovic
For most of this bout, it looked like Marcin Held was well on his way to a big win, as he controlled his opponent with his grappling and even threatened with a handful of submission attempts. Seconds into the third round, however, Hadzovic caught his Polish foe, mid Imanari roll, with a blistering knee to the face. Just like that, it was lights out for Held.
