UFC Fight Night 27: Zak Cummings Vs. Ben Alloway

Zak Cummings vs. Ben Alloway

One of many welterweight scraps is up next to complete the Facebook prelims, as Zak Cummings (15-3) makes his UFC debut vs. Ben Alloway (13-4). Cummings has won two in a row and five of his last six, with the lone loss coming to Ryan Jimmo. Alloway had his six-fight win streak snapped by Ryan LaFlare earlier this year. Gary Copeland is the third man inside the Octagon.

Cummings actually had the crowd on its feet during walk-outs. Maybe it was his “Brantley Gilbert” entrance song.

The referee, Copeland, introduced himself to Jon Anik as “Mini-Brock,” and boy does he have the guns to back it up.

Round 1: Alloway using his reach to his advantage, snapping off some nice leg kicks. Cummings gets out of control and Alloway scores a quick takedown. Cummings back to his feet and shoots for a single-leg, but is unable to get it. Good pair of strikes allows Cummings to get a takedown this time. Cummings working hard for another takedown, which he gets after locking his hands. The corner approves and Cummings works a front-headlock into a D’Arce choke. Just like that, Alloway is forced to tap and this one is over.

Zak Cummings def. Ben Alloway via submission (D’arce choke) at 4:19 of Round 1
