Welterweight Alex Morono got the action started off right on the second preliminary card bout of tonight’s (Sat., March 9, 2019) UFC on ESPN+ 4 at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.

Facing Zak Ottow, “The Great White” showed a viciously well-rounded game. He locked on what appeared to be a tight mounted guillotine early in the fight. Ottow somehow wriggled out, however. But Morono quickly transitioned to the mount. There, he unloaded some absolutely brutal ground and pound to earn the stoppage.

A great way to start the UFC’s first trip to Kansas for the aptly-nicknamed ‘Great White.’ Watch it here:
