In four trips to the Octagon Darren Stewart has yet to taste victory. Meanwhile, Eric Spicely has lost three out of five. It’s not hard to imagine that both men have their jobs on the line in their UFC Fight Night 130 main card clash… ’cause those performance records are miserable.
Spicely is all about that aggression, and in the opening minutes wastes no time winging leather and reaching out for the tie-up. Stewart is wary of that takedown, though, and keeps Spicely honest with his jab while avoiding going down. Spicely adds kicks into the mix, and keeps throwing them hands, and when time expires in the round it’s likely he’s ahead on the scorecards (but not by much).

Stewart keeps flicking out that jab in the second, and when he connects and forces his foe on his back-foot, the Brit turns up the heat. Spicely tries to fire back and get the momentum going the other way, but a jab finds its way through his defenses and drops him. Stewart is all over him, pound away, and the ref has to jump in.
