The Fight Pass preliminary headliner earlier tonight (Sat., Aug. 5, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 114 from inside Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico, produced immediate fireworks. In a battle of undefeated flyweights making their Octagon debuts, Team Alpha Male’s Joseph Morales cashed in quickly when he landed a beautiful right hand on Mexico’s own Roberto Sanchez. Sanchez would briefly recover before Morales chased him around the Octagon, grabbed a hold of his back, and secured the rear-naked choke submission finish.

With this win, Morales not only keeps his perfect professional record in tact but he jumps into the mix at 125 pounds with a flashy submission. The 22-year-old has a lot of work to do this early into his career, but he currently resides in a division desperate for new faces, especially ones who know how to finish.
