UFC Fight Island 6: Matt Riddle Responds After Jun Yong Park Breaks 11-Year Record

Jun Yong Park has snapped Matt Riddle's UFC record after bludgeoning John Phillips with more than 200 ground strikes at UFC Fight Island 6.

Park dragged Phillips down and fed him enough knuckle sandwiches to stock a buffet. The final tally was 258 ground strikes for Park, an all-time UFC record in three round fights.
