Longtime UFC middleweight Thales Leites got his fourth straight Octagon win on the main card of tonight’s (Sat., August 23, 2014) UFC Fight Night 49 from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, knocking out No. 12-ranked Francis Carmon in the first round.
A former UFC title challenger who lost to Anderson Silva for the belt, Leites has always been known for his Brazilian jiu-jitsu pedigree. But lately it’s his striking that’s been paying dividends, as he earned one of the night’s four “Performance of the Night” bonuses demolishment of Carmont.
By defeating “Limitless,” Leites should find himself a spot on the rankings and a big fight his next time out to the cage. In the meantime, check out the highlights of his latest win courtesy of UFC on FOX below:
