Justin Salas vs. Ben Wall
Let’s head to the lightweight division for our next fight, as Justin Salas meets Ben Wall.
Salas (11-5) fell to 2-2 with the promotion after a November submission loss to Thiago Tavares. He holds UFC wins vs. Aaron Riley and Anton Kuivanen. Wall (7-1) suffered his first loss when he was stopped by Alex Garcia last December.
Round 1: Salas goes for a takedown and gets denied. He tries twice more and Wall is defending well, but Salas gets him to his knees, working good shots to the body. Wall defends yet again and blocks a big kick to the face. Salas lands and stuns Wall, and he doesn’t let up, following up the right hook with a left to drop Wall. Salas pounces and this one is all over.
