UFC 224: Kelvin Gastelum Gets by "Jacare" Souza

UFC 224: Kelvin Gastelum Gets by

In round two, however, Gastelum dropped Souza not long in, and the latter appeared to be in all sorts of trouble.

That seemed to take a lot out of Jacare though and he looked visibly exhausted in the second round, while Gastelum was starting to find success with his striking and then sat the Brazilian down hard with a one-two combo, but despite having him in real trouble he couldn't put him away.

Machida and Oleinik picked up "Performance of the Night" awards, and Gastelum and Souza took home "Fight of the Night" honors.

Jacare kept pressing forward, hunting with his right hand and even throwing a high kick. But when one of them landed with a little under three minutes to go, it dropped Cooper and that was all she wrote, as the decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt took the MI native's back and sunk in the rear naked choke that produced a tap out at 2:27 of the opening frame.


Souza landed a big right and shot in again.

Yup, Gastelum and Jacare are fighting in the co-main event this weekend.

The No. 6-ranked Lineker moves to 31-8 with the win. Following his win, Gastelum was sure to call out Whittaker for a title fight but a second showdown with Yoel Romero took precedence over this new possible fight.

Gastelum pushed forward with some punches but they didn't land hard enough to do much. Machida delivered a highlight finish, landing a front kick to the face of Belfort one minute into the second frame that left Belfort sprawled out on the canvas. The 41-year-old Belfort retires with a 26-14 with 1 NC.
