Keita Nakamura and Li Jingliang put on a hell of a fight in the final "Prelims" fight of UFC Fight Night 75 tonight (Sat., Sept. 26, 2015) in Saitama Super Arena, Japan.
After a first round in which the Chinese fighter was dropped and controlled on the ground, Jingliang turned the show around by battering Nakamura in the second with crisp jabs and shots to the body.
It looked to be more of the same in the third round, forcing Nakamura to shoot a weak takedown that was stuffed. But then the Japanese fighter "hit the switch" forcing a fight ending scramble that left Jingliang falling to the canvas like a dead tree:
WHAT A FINISH! Nakamura comes out of NOWHERE with the choke and Jingliang goes out on his shield! #FacePlant http://t.co/bNcp6sQbVk— FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) September 27, 2015
