Ortiz managed to get hold of a rear-naked choke in the final seconds of the second round, but Benavidez avoided the pressure with his wrestling skills. Benavidez and Ortiz earlier met in 2014 and the fight ended in the same fashion.

Gregor Gillespie defeated Yancy Medeiros via TKO in Round 2

He made Yancy pay for every offense with his takedown once he got hold of the Hawaiian. Gillespie smothered Yancy in the first round and continued the onslaught as he secured nine takedowns in two rounds. Every time Yancy stood back up, he was taken down again and again until his energy was drained out of his system. With 55 strikes compared to 1, Gillespie completely dismantled Yancy on the standup and once he got hold of the dominant position getting Yancy’s back, he rained down punches leaving him unable to defend with his face planted to the mat. With this victory, Gillespie improved to 13-0 and 6-0 in the UFC.
