More from author
Gregor Gillespie was in no mood to have his perfect 12-0 record tarnished as he welcomed the welterweight into the lightweight division. 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.
