UFC Fight Night 36 results: Nicholas Musoke wins decision over Viscardi Andrade

Guilherme Cruz/MMA Fighting

This was an awful fight, but Nicholas Musoke won a decision over Viscardi Andrade at UFC Fight Night 36.

Although it featured two unheralded fighters, the welterweight battle between Viscardi Andrade vs. Nicholas Musoke on tonight's (Sat., Feb. 15, 2014) UFC Fight Night 36: "Machida vs. Mousasi" Fox Sports 1 broadcast from Arena Jaragua in Brazil was supposed to be a good one.

The future of the division right here, folks.

Considering the card, it was hard not to become blase at the start of the bout but Andrade turned things around with a monster right hand that flattened Musoke. It was so devastating, in fact, that the Brazilian threw his arms up and celebrated before the referee stopped the action.

And the stoppage never came.

Instead, Andrade had to follow up and his opponent had enough time to recover and get right back in the fight. The Swede even found some success trading punches to close the first round.

Then in the second, Musoke closed the gap even more by blasting away with heavy right hands that were landing hard and clean, doing a great deal of damage along the way. In a baffling move, however, he grappled while he had his foe hurt and they went to the third round because of it.

Joy.

That said, Musoke found success grappling in that final frame, with color commentator Kenny Florian noting Andrade is a world class jiu-jitsu player. Yeah.

Either way, after early danger, Musoke survived and had his way the rest of the bout en route to winning a decision by unanimous scores of 29-28 across the board.
