After taking only eight seconds to dispose of Andy Ogle in his UFC debut, featherweight Makwan Amirkhani couldn’t help but spend more time inside the Octagon in the UFC Fight Night “Jedrzejczyk vs. Penne” preliminary headliner.
Masio Fullen certainly lasted longer than Ogle, but not by much. After “Mr. Finland” scored a takedown, he quickly seized his opponent’s back and swiftly locked in a rear-naked choke. Fullen defended for as long as he could but he eventually had no choice to tap out, which he did in just 101 seconds.

Chechnya’s Mairbek Taisumov scored his third consecutive win in the Ultimate Fighting Championship as the promising lightweight clobbered Alan Patrick Silva Alves in the second round.
Following a competitive opening frame, Patrick missed a takedown attempt and when he sprung back to his feet, he was kicked in the head. Taisumov’s strike was glancing but it did enough damage to take Patrick off his feet and from there, “Beckan” pounded away with punches until referee Kevin Sataki stopped it.
The official time of the TKO came at 1:30 of the second.
