After The Crossfire – UFC Fight Night 58: Machida vs Dollaway

Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida defeated “The Doberman” CB Dollaway with a brutal left kick seconds into the first round at the main event of UFC Fight Night 58.

Dollaway tried to pressure Machida, but The Dragon’s second kick of the night found Dollaway’s midsection. The impact crumpled The Doberman, and the referee was forced to call the bout after a few followup strikes.

Performances of the night went to Machida, Renan Barao, Erick Silva, and Vitor Miranda. There was no fight-of-the-night.

Each fighter earned a $50,000 USD bonus.

WINNER: RENAN BARAO VIA THIRD ROUND SUBMISSION

A valiant performance by the Canadian, but Barao was better.
