UFC 164 started with Magnus Cedenblad getting a 57 second guillotine choke win over Jared Hamman. Cedenblad had no intentions of going for a submission, though he couldn’t resist when he saw the length of Hamman’s neck.
“I lost my last fight by guillotine and thought I won’t go for it again,” said Cedenblad to MMA Fighting. “I did it anyway and it ended good this time. When I looked at his [neck], it’s really long and I figured I’d go for it.”
It was the right call and Cedenblad had the quickest fight on the card. He’s 1-1 for the UFC and hadn’t fought since April 2011 due to injuries between himself and scheduled opponents. Cedenblad called out Dylan Andrews post-fight to avenge the defeat of friend Papy Abedi.
Hamman might be at the end of his UFC career, sitting at 2-5 and riding three consecutive stoppage defeats. It was his first appearance in over a year.
UFC 164 was Saturday, August 31. The event came from Milwaukee, WI’s BMO Harris Bradley Center. Their fight aired via the internet.
