Lawler now once again has the opportunity to fight for the welterweight belt.

"Rumble" hunts him and lands even more shots, uppercuts connects one after another, the Brazilian falls and American celebrates.

Dennis Bermudez and Clay Guida started out actively, but Bermudez looked more successful on the feet, while also stopping the main weapon of Guida, takedowns. Then Bermudez attacks again and takes his opponent down at the cage wall, tries to submit him from behind, but the bell is ringing. In the second round, Guida is punching wildy and sometimes connects, Bermudaz kicking, punching and working with his knees in muay thai clinch, then again Bermudaz takes Guida down, takes his back and choke him out.
