Top UFC bantamweight contender Andre Soukhamthath last fought in the Octagon in October last month against less experienced Jonathan Martinez at UFC Moncton. It was supposed to be a walk in the park for Soukhamthath, but it ended up going full three rounds.

The fight ended up being a bloody war which lasted full three rounds despite Andre dropping Martinez twice in the first round. After getting dropped, Martinez would not lay down and quickly recovered.

Although Andre Soukhamthath won the fight, he was surprised that Jonathan Martinez was able to survive the early onslaught.

I’m like, ‘Dude, what the f**k?’ I dropped him and I thought I finished him, he friggin’ grabs me, he’s still alive,” said Soukhamthath. “I’m like, should I roll for the anaconda or not? I’m not gonna do it because I don’t want him on top of me. I drop him again, I hit him with a spinning elbow, I hit him with flying knees, and I drop him again in the first round and he keeps waking up again. That was right towards the end of the bell, so I was like, ‘F**k!’

After that, we were kind of clinched up and then the bell rang, I kind of whispered to him like, ‘Yo, you bitch!’ I was like, ‘What the f**k, you’re supposed to be out.’ Like, stay down.”

Soukhamthath is confident that he would have landed a finishing blow during that sequence were it not for Valel’s intervention.

That’s when I had him hurt,” said Soukhamthath. “I hit him with a body shot, hit him with a couple of knees and I hit him with something and he was hurt. He was covered up and he didn’t throw one punch and I was just throwing flurries at him and I was about to end it. One of those punches was going to go through and I was going to end it.

Then all of a sudden I feel the ref stopping us while I’m trying to go for the finish, so that kind of f**ked me up and gave me an adrenaline dump. I was in great shape for this fight, but adrenaline dumps are no joke.”
