The second main card fight at UFC 122 featured "The Polish Experiment" Krzysztof Soszynski matching up against Goran Reljic in a light-heavyweight battle.

Both fighters opened up with plenty of kicks, to the leg, the body, the head. It was a glorified kickboxing match in the early going but it wasn't long before Reljic shot in for the takedown. He missed in his first attempt but if at first you don't succeed, try again, right? That's what he did and he landed the second attempt but spent the rest of the round avoiding a kimura.

Reljic didn't waste any time in the second frame looking for the takedown.

He nailed this one but once again, Soszynski worked wrist control and stayed busy from the bottom before the ref stood them up. A lot of clinching against the cage to end the round but Soszynski was in control.

No different than the opener between Ludwig and Osipczak, the third round saw Reljic gas out and Krzysztof apply the pressure. After a shot from Reljic, the "Polish Experiment" sprawled and landed big punches on the ground. After the fight went back to the feet, Soszynski landed a few more shots before another kimura attempt, this one standing, against the cage.

The round ended and it was clear who the winner was, as Soszynski took home the unanimous decision win with scores of 30-27 across the board.

That's three losses in a row for Reljic and a loss in his first fight back at 205-pounds. Soszynski is now 2-2 in his last four fights.
