UFC 229 got off to a flying start as welterweight Tony Martin earned a big victory to open up the fight card on Saturday night.
After a tentative opening round, Tony Martin had Ryan LaFlare hurt early in the second round and came close to ending the fight with a late d’arce choke attempt.
The gutsy LaFlare was able to explode out of the submission attempt and survive the round.
Unfortunately for LaFlare, he ate a huge head kick early in the final round. Martin landed clean and swarmed upon his opponent on the canvas and the referee had no choice but to halt the contest.
