UFC on FUEL TV 6 results: Jon Tuck takes decision over Tiequan Zhang

Anton Tabuena/MMA Fighting

Tiequan Zhang may have been given the bigger push in China but it was Jon Tuck who earned the decision victory at UFC on FUEL TV 6 today (Nov. 10, 2012) in Macau, China.

UFC on FUEL TV 6: "Franklin vs. Le" today (Nov. 10, 2012) in Macau, China, featured a lightweight tussle with Zhang Tiequan taking on Jon Tuck in a bout marked with international flavor.

Really, Zhang was the only Chinese fighter competing on the card while Tuck was repping Guam. The match-up itself wasn't exactly sexy, though, at least not on paper.

Then the fight started.

Zhang got busy with an armbar after Tuck went hard with punches and a big knee that had him staggered. When the armbar failed, Tuck quickly took Zhang's back with a full 2:30 to work. He transitioned to full mount, then side control, then back to the back.

It felt like it was only a matter of time.

The finish never came, however, not in round one and not in round two, despite a similarly dominant performance from Tuck once he got the fight to the floor. Zhang was landing some solid shots on the feet but even then, Tuck was answering back.

The final round saw Zhang do his best to land hard enough to put Tuck away but his chin held up. He managed to survive to the end where he was awarded the decision victory.
