It was last Saturday, May 14th at UFC Vegas 54 that Ion Cutelaba (16-7 MMA) fought Ryan Spann (20-7 MMA) in the light heavyweight co-main event.  Cutelaba came out swinging hard, but Spann caught him off balance and out of position, locking him in a guillotine choke in round 1 for the win.

Spann had entered into the bout looking to rebound after suffering a submission loss to Anthony Smith (36-16 MMA) his last time out.

Meanwhile, Ion Cutelaba was returning to the Octagon for the first time since September of 2021, where he defeated Devin Clark (13-6 MMA).

“First of all, Superman always beats the Hulk (Ion Cutelaba). Always. Secondly, I have the best coach in the world. I did what I came here to do.”
