UFC Fight Night 119 results: Marcelo Golm makes easy work of Christian Colombo in debut

Marcelo Golm showed a little bit of everything in his UFC debut, and the combination of skills was far too much for Christian Colombo.

After hurting Colombo (8-3-1 MMA, 0-2-1 UFC) on the feet early, Golm (5-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) took the fight to the ground and locked up the rear-naked choke to force the early tap at the 2:08 mark of Round 1. Following the fight, the 37-year-old Colombo announced his retirement from MMA.

The heavyweight bout opened up the preliminary card of today’s UFC Fight Night 119 event at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. It streamed on UFC Fight Pass ahead of additional prelims on FS2 and a main card on FS1.

Golm wasted little time getting to work in this fight, backing Colombo up with right hands and then stinging him with a left hook as Colombo covered up against the fence.

But just as Colombo seemed to be finding his legs standing up, Golm tripped him to the mat and landed in full mount, ready to do more damage from the top. Colombo would give up his back while attempting to escape, and seconds later Golm managed to slip his forearm around Colombo’s neck, sealing his fate as he locked on the choke.

With the win in his UFC debut, Golm remains perfect as a professional. Colombo is winless in three tries with the UFC, and apparently won’t have another chance with the retirement announcement.
