UFC Fight Night 118 Results: Bonus Winners, Highlights, Fight Scores, Attendance And Gate Numbers
(https:)
Darren Till blasted through the UFC's 170-pound Gatekeeper on Saturday in Gdansk, Poland when he thrashed Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in the first round. Blachowicz Chokes Out Clark Devin Clark showed a very low fight IQ throughout this bout. He consistently shot from distance and telegraphed each attempt. In the second round, Clark again shot and led with his head from a four or five feet away and Blachowicz was seemingly waiting on him. Kelleher and Stasiak's Spirited Battle There weren't a lot of high-action fights on the card, but the Brian Kelleher vs. Damian Stasiak bout was worthy of Fight of the Night. Josh Emmett's win over Felipe Arrantes registered a higher fight score, but it was completely one sided. Kelleher was in control of most of his bout, but Stasiak showed off his resolve. The latter was stopped with a punch from the clinch. Kelleher's well-rounded game could still make him a legitimate threat in the men's bantamweight division.
