Andy Enz vs. Marcelo Guimaraes

A pair of one-loss middleweights square off next, as Andy Enz takes on Marcelo Guimaraes.

Enz (7-1) suffered his first career loss to Clint Hester this past February, while Guimaraes (8-1-1) was also defeated in his first UFC fight, which came in early 2013 to Hyun Gyu Lim.

Round 1: Guimaraes peppering him with kicks to start, taking out the reach disadvantage. He shoots for a double-leg takedown, is denied, switches to a slam and scored. Enz, though, gets right back up to his feet without taking any damage. Enz tags him with a right hook and another that lands flush. Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson is in the corner of Enz, as they are training partners at The MMA Lab in Arizona. Looks like there is some damage done to the face of Guimaraes. Back to working the kicks for the underdog, but he eats a 1-2 combo.

Round 2: Enz with another right hook, but Guimaraes is doing a better job hitting him with his jab. Overhand right connects, and another, for Guimaraes, who has found his range and mixes in a body kick. He seems to have figured Enz out and is continuing to apply the pressure. Takedown for Guimaraes and he goes to the back, but Enz gets to his feet. Good round for Guimaraes so far, as he is hitting him with just about everything he throws.

Round 3: The corner of Enz told him he is down 2-0, and it’s very possible that he is. He comes out with a little more power, landing a nice kick to the face. Enz with a combo that sends Guimaraes retreating, but he’s unable to follow up. Guimaraes eats a right and scores with a takedown, but again, Enz gets right to his feet. Great scramble work for him throughout. Guimaraes really working the uppercut, as the corner of Enz continues to plead for combos from him. However, Guimaraes is taking the leg out with several power kicks and has yet to check anything. He’s got one wounded wheel for sure. Guimaraes with one more takedown, but no damage inflicted yet again.
