Guilherme Vasconcelos vs. Luke Zachrich

More middleweight action to conclude the Fight Pass prelims, as Guilherme Vasconcelos takes on Luke Zachrich.

Vasconcelos (3-1) will be debuting with the UFC following wins last year in Brazil, while Zachrich (13-3) dropped his debut to Caio Magalhaes in April.

Round 1: Feeling out process here to start, as both men try to find their range. Zachrich fires off a combo, but it is Vasconcelos controlling the center of the Octagon. All offense from Zachrich so far, as Vasconcelos is playing it close to the vest. Now we see some solid striking out of Vasconcelos, as he lands an uppercut. Left lands from Zachrich, who is getting off his shots just a moment before Vasconcelos can defend. Pair of jabs and a right from Zachrich as we head under a minute.

Round 2: Exchange of lefts to start the round, as Vasconcelos goes right back to controlling the center but not throwing much offense. Slip, but not able to capitalize and both men are standing again. Zachrich snapping off his jabs, and Vasconcelos has yet to try and bring this bout to the ground where he would be at the advantage. Just more on-point striking by Zachrich, as he continues to pepper the face.

Round 3: Vasconcelos is pushing the pace a little more this round, as his corner told him he is down 2-0 and needs a finish. Vasconcelos tries for a takedown, but is denied once again. Zachrich sweeps the leg and scores, but wants nothing to do with the ground game and allows him to stand back up uncontested. Some minor damage done to the face of Zachrich, but for the most part, he’s been in control. He now takes the center of the Octagon as we head under two minutes in the round and fight. A better round for Vasconcelos, but not likely enough to warrant the victory.
