Raphael Assuncao vs. Bryan Caraway fight video highlights from UFC Fight Night 54 in Halifax

Close, but no "Lightning." While Raphael Assuncao would have needed a miracle to leapfrog Dominick Cruz in the 135-pound title hunt, the crafty Brazilian reaffirmed his place as No. 2 behind "The Dominator" by turning away submission ace Bryan Caraway at the UFC Fight Night 54 mixed martial arts (MMA) event last night (Sat., Oct. 4, 2014) on FOX Sports 1 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (recap here). The win marked his seventh straight and considering he already holds a victory over 135-pound champion TJ Dillashaw, Assuncao may want to stay on the bench until a title fight opens up.
