While two title fights garnered most of the attention regarding UFC 194, which took place last night (December 12, 2015) from Las Vegas, Nevada, middleweight contenders Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Yoel Romero also squared off on the main card.

With a title shot likely on the line, a lot was at stake, and although the bout may not have lived up to it’s high expectations, it was a solid fight nonetheless.

“The Soldier of God” landed a beautiful spinning back fist early on in the first that seemed to have rocked “Jacare”, but the Brazilian would recover and fight back.

The two went back and forth for the remainder of the fight, but it was Romero who was able to edge out a split-decision victory. Check out the video highlights courtesy of the UFC below:
