Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
August 4, 2012
Commentators: Mike Golderg and Joe Rogan
Preliminary Card on FUEL TV
Flyweight bout: Ulysses Gomez (9-2) vs. John Moraga (10-1)
Gomez replaces Ian McCall.
Ulysses' nickname is "Useless." Don't ask me why. He also comes out to Justin Bieber's hit single "Baby." Whatever works.
Herb Dean is our referee. Moraga is a two-time All American wrestler out of Arizona State. He seems confident on his feet his highly-touted flyweight opponent. They briefly clinch. Break. Moraga hits some right leg kicks on Gomez, followed by a body shot. Both are bleeding. Body kick by Moraga.
Rogan points out it was an accidental headbutt that caused Gomez's forehead cut. Gomez attempts the takedown, but is stuffed. Rogan keeps calling Gomez "Useless." Funny. Knee to the body of Gomez. Big elbow. Uppercuts at a rapid pace. Gomez is down and OUT COLD. Good lord that happened so fast. Back-to-back elbows. Uppercuts. Moraga impresses in his UFC debut.
Official Decision: John Moraga (11-1) def. Ulysses Gomez (9-3) via knockout at 3:46 of Round One.
Moraga tells Rogan he's proud of his performance and is here to make the UFC happy. The Arizonan says he hopes he set the tone for the night. I sure hope so too.
