Rafeal Natal enjoyed a successful homecoming to Belo Horizonte, Brazil tonight, as he won a unanimous decision over Tor Troeng of Sweden in an excellent middleweight bout.

Natal’s victory was carved out by sending his opponent to the mat twice with big right hands, then dominating several memorable ground exchanges. Troeng had moments of success, including maneuvering to Natal’s back after a sweep in the first; but it was Natal’s night. Natal’s hammer fists in Troeng’s guard nearly ended the bout in the second round and with a guillotine in the third, as well.

At Ultimate Fight Night 28, Rafeal Natal defeated Tor Troeng by unaninous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)
