Ovince Saint Preux chokes Yushin Okami out cold at UFC Japan

Claudia Gadelha

Claudia Gadelha

Top-ranked women's strawweight Claudia Gadelha faced fellow former title contender Jessica Andrade in the co-main event, and the fight turned into an absolute bloodbath with Gadelha controlling the action early with some cutting elbows. Saint Preux owns an 8-4 record in the UFC, including an interim title shot at Jon Jones. As Saki backed into the cage, Da Silva pressured Saki with a series of devastating strikes to the head and body all before Saki dropped Da Silva down to the mat with a picture-perfect knockout finish.

Prior to Friday, Gadelha, who is originally from Brazil and now trains out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, had only lost to Jedrzejczyk in her career. Gomi, 39, has now been stopped in five consecutive bouts.

Legendary kickboxer Gökhan Saki made his highly anticipated Octagon debut by using his patented left hand to knock out Luis Henrique Da Silva. The 29-year-old expressed some bitter sweet emotion after the bout, due to his respect for Gomi. Rolando Dy - Unanimous Decision 125: Jussier da Silva def.

Dy opened the final round with a hard knee that rattled Ishihara, and after a borderline low blow from Dy, there was a brief halt to the bout.

Dy landed some big shots at the end of a far more tentative second round and almost buckled Ishihara with a knee early. No other UFC fighter has ever done that. The main card aired live on FXX.

It is the ninth submission win of Formiga's career. He's just 2-2 in his last four, but has only lost to the very top of the division.
