Alan Belcher and Wilson Gouveia played rock’em sock’em robots for a good chunk of their catchweight brawl before it was Belcher that capitalized with a series of hooks and a big uppercut that put the ATT fighter on the canvas, and a few more well placed punches provided the icing on the cake and the TKO victory for Belcher.
It wasn’t a good night for Kevin Burns. After taking a miserably painful kick to the junk midway through the first, the foul plagued UFC veteran wound up on the bad end of a huge right hand from T.J. Grant that put him flat on the canvas before being swarmed for the TKO finish with just seconds remaining on the clock.
It was Rousimar Palhares that came out on top of the battle between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts as Lucio Linhares found himself unexpectedly tapping out to a lightning quick heel book in the second round.
