Welcome to CagedInsider’s coverage of UFC on FOX 30, a pretty damn good card featuring a rematch between Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier in the main event.
A lot of good match-ups await us, with a lot of good fighters.
First up on the Fight Pass prelims: Devin Powell versus Alvaro Herrera.
Powell has made two trips to the Octagon and lost via decision in both instances, while Herrera washed out of a season of TUF LatAm and has lost two out of three since then.
The come out with Herrera throwing hard leather and Powell eating it on the feet, and, when he drops into a heelhook attempt, eating it on the ground. But then he and Herrera square up once more on the feet, and Powell just crushes his opponent with a kick to the body that lands clean. Herrera crumbles, tries to rise, takes another kick to the body, and he’s done.
Bring the violence!
