UFC 302 video: Jailton Almeida taps Alexandr Romanov with standing rear-naked choke

NEWARK, N.J.– Jailton Almeida got it done inside one Saturday at Prudential Center to recuperate into the win column.

In under 20 seconds, Almeida (21-3 MMA, 7-1 UFC) removed challenger Alexandr Romanov (17-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) throughout their UFC 302 initial card bout. After a couple of efforts, Almeida protected a rear-naked choke for the tap at 2:27 of Round 1.

Almeida was psychological after the success, which comes less than 3 months after a knockout loss to Curtis Blaydes in March. That defeat was the very first of his UFC period.

While Almeida has actually had relatively constant outcomes throughout his eight-fight UFC period, he’s periodically had a hard time to complete battles inside the range. The fast submission Saturday moved him even more in his designated instructions and he required a battle at the UFC Fight Night in September in

Romanov has actually lost 3 of his newest 4 trips after a five-fight winning streak to begin his UFC period.
