Moraes settles score with Raphael in their rematch and submitted him in the main event with a Guillotine Choke at 3:17 secs. A much improved and dangerous Moraes was no match for Raphael who struggled on the feet and got dropped with a pair of combo. Leg kicks from Moraes set the pace of the fight and gave him the range to land that huge right hand. Raphael looked like he was recovering but Moraes didn’t want to miss this opportunity and quickly jumped on the top. In no time, Raphael was deep into the choke and had to surrender. Mores is now on a four fight win streak and could be in line for the title fight this year.
