It was an easy night for the judges as Trevin Giles, Max Griffin and every other winner on the preliminary card earned a finish at UFC Vegas 13.
Five fights up and five fights down before the final bell on Saturday. Take a look at the finishes from the UFC Vegas 13 prelims.
Trevin Giles def. Bevon Lewis by TKO via strikes (1:26, R3)
Oddsmakers had it as a pick'em but Giles exceeded expectations with a round three TKO of Lewis. Giles showed superior striking, both in power and technique, en route to the finish.
Alexandr Romanov def. Marcos Rogerio De Lima by submission via forearm choke (4:48, R1)
This was a classic striker vs. grappler affair with the latter taking the lead. Rogerio De Lima opened up with good leg kicks, but it was the explosive Romanov who got things to the ground and scored a rare submission.
Darren Elkins def. Eduardo Garagorri by submission via rear-naked choke (2:22, R3)
Elkins did what Elkins does, take damage before landing a hail mary finish. The fight was either 2-0 Elkins or 1-1 heading into round three; however, Elkins managed to take his opponent down at will. Garagorri rocked Elkins, but "The Damage" managed to take the back and secure a choke.
Max Griffin def. Ramiz Brahimaj by TKO via injury (2:03, R3)
Griffin was arguably up 2-0 but he would not leave it to the judges. Griffin backed Brahimaj against the fence and landed a slicing elbow that nearly tore his opponent's ear off. The referee waved things off immediately.
Gustavo Lopez def. Anthony Birchak by submission via rear naked choke (2:43, R1)
Lopez made easy work of his training partner Anthony Birchak. It was a disappointing return to the promotion for Birchak as he ate big shots on the feet before tapping on the ground.
