The following day, another third-round stoppage success for UFC light heavyweight Paul Craig
On Saturday night, “The Bear Jew” found himself stuck on his back with towering Kennedy Nzechukwu looking to rain down strikes late in the last framework of their crap at UFC Philadelphia.
But as has been customary in Craig’s fights, he found a opening and locked on tight triangle choke from the floor, forcing his fellow rival to tap with 40 seconds left on the clock.
To get Craig (11-3), this marks his third straight competition to get rid of with less than one minute left in the fight. He previously tapped Magomed Ankalaev with just one minute left UFC London before agreeing into a kimura at the hands of Jim Crute, who locked on the entry with nine seconds left at UFC Adelaide.
This was the first pro defeat of Nzechukwu’s (61 ) career.
