UFC Vegas 13 perks: Raoni Barcelos and Khalid Taha thriller takes Battle of the Night
The UFC returned to the Apex in Las Vegas for UFC Vegas 13, which is the second occasion since the promotion wrapped up its second stint on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
Forty-one-year-old Glover Teixeira made a declaration with his third-round submission of Thiago Santos. The success may earn Teixeira a UFC light heavyweight title shot, but it didn’t make him among the UFC Vegas 13 fighter efficiency benefits.
Battle of the Night: Raoni Barcelos vs. Khalid Taha
Raoni Barcelos looked to take the triumph early by dragging Khalid Taha into his BJJ world on the canvas, but try as he might, Barcelos could not put Taha away.
Each time it appeared like Barcelos had acquired the edge, the German born Lebanese fighter would dig deep, storm back, and land a number of shots of his own.
In the end, Barcelos got the unanimous nod from the judges, however they each went house with an extra $50,00
