After a solid night of fights with UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. The Korean Zombie, the mixed martial arts promotion wasn’t done at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The octagon stayed up and was reset for another full card of fighting with the Road To UFC semi-finals.

Road To UFC is a bit of an odd duck tournament that gets barely any promotion in North America. It’s kind of like a Contender Series for Asian MMA prospects, but instead of tickling the fancy of UFC president Dana White, fighters have to win a three round tournament to earn a contract.

On Sunday night in Singapore (Sunday morning here in North America), the semi-finals for the second season of Road To UFC went down, and there wasn’t too much in the way of finishes.

In a non-tournament flyweight bout, Nyamjargal Tumendemberel submitted Peter Danasoe in the first round with a vicious rear-naked choke to start the event.

In one of the bantamweight tournament semi-finals, Lee Chang-ho earned a TKO win over Daermisi Zhawupasi in the third round.

Check out the full results from the evening and further highlights below!
