UFC On FX 8: Yuri Alcantara Vs. Iliarde Santos

Yuri Alcantara vs. Iliarde Santos

The lone bantamweight contest on the card is next with Yuri Alcantara (26-4) taking on Iliarde Santos (27-6-1). The third man inside the Octagon will be Kevin Mulhall.

Round 1: Two Brazilians set to entertain, so each punch and kick could give the crowd a reason to scream. Alcantara throws a huge flying knee that actually goes over the head of Santos, who is working for a takedown. Less than a minute in and it looks like Santos wants nothing to do with the striking of Alcantara. Big shots landing by Alcantara, who has Santos caught up against the fence. Everything that Alcantara throws is powerful, as he drops Santos and quickly follows up, forcing the ref to step in after only a handful of strikes.

Yuri Alcantara def. Iliarde Santos via TKO (strikes) at 2:31 of Round 1
