UFC Fight Night 137 Results: Andre Ewell Edges Renan Barao in His Debut
More from author
Beating a former UFC champion in your UFC debut and in an hostile territory is nothing short of a dream for any fighter and Andre just did that. Standing by his nickname ‘Highlight’ – Andre dropped Renan early in the first round while he was on back footwork, which very few fighters have done it inside the octagon. Renan bounced back and took Andre to the ground where he spent remaining minutes of the first round. But Renan started to fade off from the second as Andre started to find his range and landed clean shots that busted Renan’s nose causing him serious problems. They both exchanged in the third round but Andre edged with his striking combinations. Renan is now 1-5 in his last six bouts and looks like its time to hang up his gloves.
