Clint Hester made a name for himself as a slugger on TUF. Marcos Rogerio de Lima was a banger on TUF Brasil 3, and has lived and died by the four-ounce glove ever since. It’s safe to say some leather will be thrown in this one.
De Lima is a kicking machine from the moment referee Dan Miragliotta says “go”, and it takes less than a minute for him to force Hester to come in so he can stun him with a punch. The Brazilian follows him down and takes him to Pound Town, and after about a minute he passes to mount. Hester hangs on, and gradually works back to put De Lima in his guard, but it doesn’t matter: De Lima keeps dropping bombs, and when the opening presents itself, he slides into a head/arm choke that Hester has no choice but to tap to.
Result: Marcos Rogerio de Lima def. Clint Hester via Submission (Head/Arm Choke) at 4:35, R1
