Nicolas Dalby defeated Alex Oliveira via Unanimous Decision

Nicolas Dalby kicks off his second UFC stint with a big win!

The Denmark native scored his first UFC win back in 2015 to extended his undefeated streak to fourteen. But Dalby could not keep up with the quality of opponents he had to face and was soon cut from the promotion following two straight losses. After picking up three spectacular wins outside the UFC, Dalby’s dream of fighting in his home town and under the UFC banner came true as he faced Alex Oliveira in the opening bout of the main event. Dalby’s energy and emotions were both on high levels with massive fan support on his side. Dalby right away began putting pressure on Oliveira with some solid strikes and found opening to take Oliveira to the ground. With each passing round, Dalby’s performance was skyrocketing. He landed multiple shots from close range, defended inside the clinch and even reversed positions to avoid take downs from Oliveira. In the final round, Oliveira exploded and instantly landed a take down that saw Dalby down on his back for several minutes until the referee stood them up. Oliveira sensing he was behind the scorecard, went for another take down but this time Dalby made sure to reverse it and secure top position. Dalby ended the final round with some serious ground and pound as Oliveira struggled to defend them. With this win, Dallby is now on a four fight win streak. While Oliveira has now lost three in a row.

Ovince St. Preux defeated Michal Oleksiejczuk via Submission in Round 2

Jason Von Flue must be one happy man!

OSP scored his fourth submission win via the infamous Von Flue choke as he made Michal Oleksiejczuk tap out at 2:14 secs of the second round. But OSP had to weather the initial storm from Michal’s relentless speed and onslaught. Michal landed some nasty shots on OSP’s body and head while he continued to hunt for his chin. One of the shots sent OSP crashing to the ground but the former title challenger kept his cool and managed to come out unscathed. The aggressive pace and heavy output from the opening round caused Michal to slow down a bit in the second. OSP took advantage & went for a take down only to get caught up in a guillotine. While many might have scoffed off OSP’s ill timed take down, it was in fact a deceiving move to set up the Von Flue Preux choke – a master strategy OSP shared with his coach during the break. This is the sixth Von Flue choke in UFC history. With this win, OSP is now back in the win column and has tied records for most finishes and submissions in UFC light heavyweight history

Gunnar responded with his own set of take downs but was just not there to keep him down. With one round each to their name Gunnar & Burns laid it all out in the final round. A back and forth action only made it difficult to judge the final round up until Burns was able to shrug off a take down from Gunnar and pressed him to the cage . With this win, Burns is now on a four fight win streak inside the Octagon.
