UFC-Rotterdam results: Abdul-Kerim Edilov debuts with beatdown of Bojan Mihajlovic


ROTTERDAM – Debuting 205-pounder Abdul-Kerim Edilov announced his UFC arrival with an absolute beatdown of Serbia’s Bojan Mihajlovic.

The light heavyweight bout took place on the preliminary card of Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night 115 event, which streamed live on UFC Fight Pass from Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

Edilov opened the bout with a pair of thunderous kicks to the legs and body of the much smaller Mihajlovic. As his opponent retreated to the cage and looked to return fire, Edilov found a home for some massive knees and powerful punches, as well, before changing levels and dragging the action to the floor. Bloodied early, Mihajlovic pulls guard, trying to tie things up underneath as Edilov found opportunities to posture and punch.

Blood continued to stream down Mihajlovic’s face as Edilov pounded away with strikes. Mihajlovic eventually turned to his knees in the final minute, turtling and surviving the one-sided round.

At the start of the second, Mihajlovic tried valiantly to throw haymakers on the feet, but Edilov struck his way into another quick takedown and set up in the dominant position. Placing his left forearm on his opponent’s neck, Edilov just blasted away with powerful right hands on the floor, earning a merciful stoppage from referee Kevin Sataki at the 2:32 mark of the round.

Edilov (17-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) now owns a 10-fight winning streak, while Mihajlovic (10-6 MMA, 0-3 UFC) loses for the third time in as many UFC appearances.
