It’s a UFC record strawweight Maryna Moroz would rather soon forget.
Yair Rodriguez used an aggressive pace and striking to outlast a game Alex Caceres in a five-round battle at UFC Fight Night 92 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Rodriguez started off fast, forcing Caceres on the defensive for the first two rounds. But then when he started to fade a bit, Caceres started to mount some offence, starting with a takedown in the third round. Caceres countered Rodriguez in the fourth, but Yair used a dynamic fifth round to put the fight away from a tired Caceres.
The judges scored it 46-49, 48-47 and 48-47.
