Ferreira Submits Santos

Blackzilians fighter, and TUF: Brazil 1 champion, Cezar Ferreira secured an impressive victory tonight in Rio against TUF:Brazil 2 veteran Thiago “Marreta” Santos. Ferreira connected with a nasty overhand left that staggered Santos into the cage. The Vitor Belfort protégé immediately pounced and landed a fight-ending guillotine choke with devastating speed. “Mutante” is now 2-0 in the UFC and finally appears healthy enough to begin his UFC career.


Rd. 1- Ferreira is setting up headkick early and tags Santos with a punch. Headkick attempt is missed but he attacks and sinks in a deep guillotine finish and Santos is forced to tap quickly.

Cezar Ferreira def. Thiago “Marreta” Santos via submission (guillotine) at 0:47 of Round 1
