The bantamweight prospect from the UK, Nathaniel Wood picked up his third consecutive UFC win with a dominant submission win. Quinonez initiated with leg kicks but Wood was quick to counter with his punches. Quinonez realizing it would be a bad idea to stand & trade with Wood, opted for a take down but Wood swept to top and stood back up. In a short exchange, Wood landed his trademark left hand that sent Quinonez to the floor. Quinonez continued to clinch in an attempt to take Wood down but the ‘Prospect’ was just too much for him. Wood tripped Quinonez and in a matter of seconds, secured his back and wrapped a tight rear-naked choke forcing him to tap at 2:46 secs of the second round. The 25 year old Wood (16-3) now has 14 career wins via finish, while Quinonez (7-2) got his four-fight win streak snapped.
