Jared Rosholt vs. Daniel Omielanczuk

We’ll conclude the prelims with our first of two heavyweight bouts, as Jared Rosholt battles Daniel Omielanczuk.

Rosholt (9-1) is a former standout wrestler at Oklahoma State University. He defeated Walt Harris in his UFC debut. Omielanczuk (16-3) has won each of his last 12 fights, including a knockout of Nandor Guelmino last September.

Round 1: Both of these men already look sweaty, as the temperature is in the mid-80s in Abu Dhabi. Rosholt with a strong right that connects and follows with a left. He shoots for a takedown and gets it with ease, though Omielanczuk does have his neck right now. Rosholt is working the body with some rights to the stomach and gets out of the choke with ease. He’s looking to mount and possibly end this one early. The former Cowboy is wearing on Omielanczuk with all his weight and is in side control, having busted Omielanczuk up with elbows. He’s almost moved to full mount and lands another huge elbow from in tight. Under a minute to go and Rosholt is going for a possible kimura.

Round 2: Omielanczuk defends the takedown this time and has a potential choke, but releases it and fires off a kick. Rosholt back in on a takedown and he gets it, snapping Omielanczuk to the canvas with a single-leg. No issues for Rosholt to dominate the wrestling int his one. All Rosholt, back to side control and landing elbows, and even knees, at every opening. Omielanczuk gets to his knees and eats a huge shot to the body. Rosholt with a left-right-knee combo, but walks in and eats a counter-left and a right. Rosholt ties up and Omielanczuk pulls guard with under a minute to go.

Round 3: Just seconds in and we are back to the canvas with Rosholt in side control. He mounts, takes the back and lands another pair of knees to the body. He doesn’t appear to want to be on the back, flipping Omielanczuk to his back and working to the mount again. More short elbows to the face with three minutes left. Just a dominating performance from Rosholt, who remains in side control through the final minutes. He attempts a possible submission, but isn’t really working hard for it.
