The former title challenger was eager to make it five in a row when he clashed with at , which took place tonight (Jan. 31, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace did just that.
As both fighters made it back to the center of the Octagon,
With one minute remaining in the round,
Leites, not noticeably dazed, was saved by the bell.
To start the second stanza, Leites opened with a leg kick and then landed a left hook in an exchange shortly thereafter.
Boetsch, somehow, was able to escape, but Leites secured full mount. And before Boetsch could even think about how to try and escape, Leites was already angling for another arm-triangle choke. This one, though, he wasn't going to let slip through his grasp as he cranked it counter clockwise and put Boetsch to sleep in seconds.
Nice submission win for Leites, who ate several big shots and was very swollen post-fight.
