Headlining the card is a much anticipated bout between the No. 2 ranked UFC featherweight contender Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega and the No. 4 ranked UFC featherweight contender ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung.
Right in the middle of the main card came tonight’s feature fight between light-heavyweight talents Jimmy Crute and Modestas Bukauskas.
Crute came into the bout with an 11-1 record (3-1 UFC), eight wins coming via finish, and Bukauskas came in with an 11-2 record (1-0 UFC), ten wins coming via finish.
With Crute being 24-years-old and Bukauskas being 26-years-old, one thing is for certain after seeing this fight, we’ll be seeing a lot of both of these talents in the years to come.
Crute opened up the fight landing a number of hard leg kicks, which would have certainly had an effect on Bukauskas should the fight have gone longer.
Crute shoots on a takedown and has Bukauskas’s back to the cage, but he lands an illegal knee and loses his position. Within a minute, the action resumes.
About two minutes into the fight, Bukauskas goes for a left high kick, but is stopped right in his tracks, as a vicious right cross from Crute sits him down. Crute followed up with a right uppercut and a left cross, and that was all she wrote.
Jimmy Crute improves his record to 12-1 tonight with his thunderous knockout and second-straight first-round finish.
Official Result: Jimmy Crute def. Modestas Bukauskas via KO (punches) at 2:01 of round one
