Cutelaba (16-9-1 MMA) was looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he took to the Octagon this evening. ‘The Hulk’ was coming off back-to-back submission losses to Ryan Spann and Johnny Walker in his most previous efforts. The Moldova native had gone just 1-4-1 over his past six UFC appearances ahead of tonight’s bout.

Meanwhile, Kennedy Nzechukwu (11-3 MMA) was most previously seen in action this past July, where he scored a third-round TKO victory over Karl Roberson. That victory had snapped a two-fight losing streak for the ‘African Savage’, as Kennedy had previously suffered setbacks to Jung Da-un and Nicolae Negumereanu.

Tonight’s main event proved to be a wild back and forth affair. Ion Cutelaba had a strong opening round, hurting Kennedy Nzechukwu and taking him down on multiple occasions. However, the ‘African Savage’ was able to weather the storm and wound up putting ‘The Hulk’ away with some nasty knees and punches early on in Round 2.
