Eric Spicely was no great shakes as a competitor on TUF, and his first fight in the UFC proper didn’t go so well for him. But something happened on his way to the unemployment line, and he’s become a submission machine, finishing Thiago Santos in his last outing. Tonight, his opponent is Italian Alessio Di Chirico – can Di Chirico avoid getting caught?
Di Chirico comes out looking to strike, and Spicely comes out looking to tie up, and the end result is Di Chirico reversing a trip and ending up on top when they go down. But Spicely wastes no time throwing up a triangle, and soon the Italian is left with no choice but to tap out. Who is this new Eric Spicely?
