Just a few weeks shy of a full year away from fighting and Manny Gamburyan made his UFC return to close the Facebook part of the prelims. He left with the decision win.
“It always feels amazing to comeback and fight,” said Gamburyan to MMA Fighting. “After the win you always feel good, then you feel the pain when you get home.”
One shot Gamburyan will feel is an elbow to his head in round one. It cut Gamburyan open and the featherweight said post-fight maybe the referee should have stopped the fight or at least deducted a point.
Gamburyan joined the UFC and took two defeats before a win last year. He’s got his first win streak going in over three years.
