Paul Craig endears himself to the Mexico City fans by singing the praises of what his MMA career means to him. "I would never get to see a country like this," he says. "What a place."
Call it a submission win, but Paul Craig set up his rear-naked choke finish by kneeing Vinicius Moreira in the head out of a clinch, then flooring him with another knee, this one to the body. The Scotsman (12--4) gets the tap at 3:19 of Round 1, the first to submit Moreira (-9-4).
Vinicius Moreira (9-3) has lost his first two UFC fights after coming to the promotion riding a five-fight win streak. The Brazilian light heavyweight faces Paul Craig (11-4) of Scotland.
