Marcello Edges Madadi in UFC 153 Opener
Cristiano Marcello got a little hometown judging to kick off the night as he defeated Reza Madadi via split decision. The two fighters engaged in a back and forth battle for three rounds but it appeared that the Swedish-Iranian fighter rocked his Brazilian opponent more often and controlled the grappling game. It was not enough for Madadi to get the win however, as the TUF: Live vet would earn his first UFC victory.
