Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight grappling sensations Demian Maia and Gunnar Nelson fought last night (Dec. 12, 2015) at UFC 194 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Maia has actually consistently shown himself to be among the best Welterweights worldwide. At this moment, he was wishing for one last title run, and he had to beat “Gunni” for that to become truth.
On the other hand, Nelson has actually looked very hazardous on the whole, however he turned up quite brief in his very first genuine step up versus Rick Story. Nelson was wishing to move past that loss and into the leading 10 with a success here.
Rather, he encountered a tough wall.
Maia lost little time in attacking with a double leg takedown, but Nelson protected extremely well. After some extended chain wrestling, Nelson landed in top position. However, Maia quickly scrambled into another takedown attempt, and this time achieved success in taking his opponent’s back.
Nelson tried to roll and leave, but Maia took install and began hammering away at his challenger. Regardless of Nelson’s exceptional attempts to leave, Maia hung on and continued to work ground strikes from both the install and back mount. At the very end of the round, Maia attempted an armbar, however Nelson reversed position.
