In a fun slugfest that looked like it could end with a knockout at any moment, Luiz Firmino outlasted fellow veteran Tyson Griffin on Saturday.

Brazil’s Firmino (18-6) took a unanimous decision from Griffin (16-8) in large part thanks to an iron chin that withstood some serious punches from the 14-fight UFC veteran. Firmino landed solid shots of his own on the feet, but it was on the ground where he won the fight with his wrestling.

Above, check out the highlights of the fight, which took place at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The main card aired on NBC Sports Network.
