Swedish fighter Jack Hermansson had an unsuccessful run in Bellator a few years back, but amassed enough wins to earn a slot in the UFC. He’s since gone 1-1, but as a local fighter, of course he’s going to be on this card. Alex Nicholson has gone 1-2 in the Octagon, but he’s lost to the likes of Misha Cirkunov and Sam Alvey, and those are tough dudes.
The bout opens with Nicholson firing off kicks and punches, and Hermansson ducking down and shooting. He gets Nicholson to the canvas, they scramble a bit, and Hermansson is soon firmly in back-mount, delivering punches like he’s the UPS man in downtown Brooklyn. When Nicholson shows no defense, the referee mercifully jumps in.
Results: Jack Hermansson def. Alex Nicholson via TKO (Punches) at 2:00, R1
