Ishihara (10-4-2 MMA, 3-2-1 UFC) took a unanimous decision from Dy (8-6-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 117 in Japan. The win came in part because Dy lost a point in the third round for a third low blow. Absent that point deduction, the fight would’ve been a majority draw.
But after the win, Ishihara said he won’t hold ill will – even though the third kick to the groin hurt him badly.
“The first was OK, but the (third) one really affected me,” Ishihara said through his translator. “I’m a fighter, so I don’t think it was intentional at all.”
UFC Fight Night 117 took place Friday at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, near Tokyo. The card aired on FXX.
