UFC 147 Results: Hacran Dias Wins Impressively in Octagon Debut


UFC Brazil FlagYuri Alcantari and Octagon newcomer Hacran Dias kicked off the UFC 147: Silva vs. Franklin II main card in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on Saturday night. Both fighters were riding extended winning streaks, but only one could keep his streak alive.

Round one was all Dias, who put Alcantara on the mat twice and softened him up with some solid ground and pound. Alcantara finally escaped and took Dias’ back towards the end of the round, but couldn’t mount much offense as Dias nearly locked out a Kimura.

Dias kept it up in the second round, again planting Alcantara on the mat and grounding and pounding him. He did get caught in a serious armbar attempt at one point, but remained calm and escaped.

Round three started off much different than the first two rounds, both fighters content to stand and trade for the better part of the round. But as the round wound down, Dias again landed the takedown and started ground and pounding. The referee restarted them, however, and Alcantara landed a big shot, but then Dias put him down again. This time Alcantara scrambled to top position and mounted a strong ground and pound attack of his own, desperate to try and find a finish before the horn.

It was too little too late, however, as Dias walked out of the Octagon with a unanimous decision victory in his UFC debut, extending his winning streak to nine consecutive bouts.
