Three fighters keep their perfect 100 percent finish rates today at UFC London

UFC London, as usual and as expected, turned into an incredible event of fights once again.

The 15-fight card began at 12pm ET/9am PT, and it produced some stellar showcases of mixed martial arts.

Opening up the preliminary card was one of the better one-round fights you’ll ever see, which saw flyweight talent Jafel Filho get hurt a whopping three times (dropped twice) before stunning, and eventually submitting Daniel Barez with an arm-triangle choke just 3:26 into the opening round.

This improved him to 15-3 as a professional, and it was the 14th finish of his career.

The next incredible performance we’d like to mention came in the co-main event of the evening, where Gracie BJJ black belt Julija Stoliarenko submitted Molly McCann with an armbar at 1:55 of round one. This was her 11th career victory, and her 10th career finish.

Julija Stoliarenko, though is now just 11-7-2 as a professional, has 10 armbar finishes in 11 wins.

Lastly we give mention to the three talents that kept their 100% finish rates today at UFC London.

First up is lightweight prospect Joel Alvarez, who submitted (D’Arce choke) Marc Diakiese at 4:26 of round two in the preliminary co-main event of the evening today; this victory improved Alvarez’ record to 20-3 (17 submission, 3 knockout), and he’s now 5-2 in the UFC.

Next came a 185 lb showdown between BJJ phenoms Paul Craig and Andre Muniz.

Craig, the no. 9 ranked light-heavyweight contender, was making his middleweight debut opposing the no. 14 ranked contender. Craig ended up securing a TKO victory, and like Alvarez, it came late in the second at 4:40 of the round.

This victory improved Craig’s record to 17-6-1 (13 submission, 4 knockout). He is now 9-6-1 in the UFC, and 1-0 in the middleweight division.

Last up, no. 5 ranked Tom Aspinall returned to the octagon today for the first time in one year to headline the event against no. 10 ranked Marcin Tybura, looking incredible through the whole 73 seconds of the bout. Aspinall impressively TKO’d Tybura to improve his record to 13-3 (3 submission, 10 knockout).

Aspinall is now 6-1 in the UFC, his only promotional defeat coming via injury; and, his last defeat prior to that came via disqualification in just his sixth fight.
