With just one fight in the UFC, new comer Laureano Staropoli faced a veteran in Thiago Alves, but his spectacular performance had him win the biggest fight of his career. Staropoli displayed some slick footwork and flashy kicks to keep Alves back peddling in the first round, but it was his deep gas tank that got him land endless combinations. At times it seemed like Alves had his chance to finish Laureano but with the Argentinian’s tenacity it was hard for Alves. Laureano continued to move forward despite Alves landing numerous leg kicks and caught Alves clean with his strikes. With the win, Laureano is now on a seven fight win streak.
