Fil-Am Striegl loses debut
Filipino-American fighter Mark Striegl had a dose of reality after suffering defeat in his UFC debut.
Said Nurmagomedov of Russia needed but 51 seconds to hand Striegl his first loss in the promotion in their bantamweight bout, the first match of the night in UFC Fight Island 6 in Abu Dhabi Saturday (Sunday morning, Manila time).
“I feel great. I didn’t have to get injured or anything, it was over pretty quick. I have great balance. I’m good on the ground,” said Nurmagomedov. (Carlo Anolin)
