Eryk Anders def. Rafael Natal
UFC newcomer Eryk Anders proved why he was the favorite over veteran Rafael Natal. Anders had Natal stumbling after landing a couple blows and eventually sent Natal to the mat with back-to-back lefts midway through the first round.

Alex Oliveira def. Ryan LaFlare
Alex Oliveira handed Ryan LaFlare his first UFC finish in Long Island. Oliveira landed a right hook in Round 2 and is now undefeated in his last five fights.

Alex Oliveira: “I knew that Ryan’s standup was okay, but his biggest asset is his wrestling and I stayed calm in the first round and I warmed up in the second and was able to execute my game plan. I’m strong at 170 and I’m here to stay in the welterweight division. Wherever the UFC puts me will be good, I just want to fight the best in the division.”

Chase Sherman def. Damian Grabowski
Chase Sherman came out slinging and nearly finished Damian Grabowski at multiple times in the fight en route to a unanimous decision win (30-27, 30-26, 30-27). Cherman stuffed all of Grabowski’s takedowns and has now won two consecutive fights in the UFC.

Chase Sherman: “I’m really getting into the groove, getting into my comfort zone, believing in myself a little bit more – I finally feel like I belong here. I really think that self-belief is a strong tool. Working with Mike Winklejohn is also a big factor in my comfort. I come from Mississippi and go out to Jackson Wink’s and work with those guys and that really builds the confidence in me. It builds confidence in my cardio because the gym is at elevation and working with some of the best fighters in the world. I’ve had Alan (Belcher) in my corner since the beginning; he’s a veteran of the game and he’s forgotten more stuff than others even know, it’s always good to have him there. I think we’re just getting off on the right foot. My first two fights were tough, now I’m looking to get a three-fight win streak going and then I’ll take a look at the top-15 and see where I’m at.”


Jeremy Kennedy def. Kyle Bochniak
Jeremy Kennedy sealed a unanimous decision victory (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) with a dominant third round. Kennedy landed elbows from top position on Kyle Bochniak as the final seconds ticked off in Round 3.

Marlon Vera def. Brian Kelleher
Marlon Vera continued his win streak in Long Island. Vera submitted Brian Kelleher with an armbar in Round 1. It was Kelleher’s first UFC loss as Vera improves to 10-3-1.

Junior Albini def. Tim Johnson
Junior Albini’s UFC debut didn’t last long, as he KO’d Tim Johnson in Round 1. Albini becomes the first fight to finish Johnson during his UFC tenure.

Shane Burgos def. Godofredo Pepey
Shane Burgos put on a clinic, outstriking Godofredey Pepey 159-44. Burgos remains undefeated in the UFC and 10-0 overall.

Chris Wade def. Frankie Perez
