While the victory was marred by a failed trip to the scales, Michel Prazeres did pick up a nice submission win over octagon newcomer Mads Burnell.

The catchweight bout took place on the prelims of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 115 event, which streamed live on UFC Fight Pass from Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

The two grapplers quickly clinched to start, and Burnell was forced to settle on his back under the powerful Prazeres. Both men showed slick moves as they transitioned in search for offensive positions, though Prazeres kept himself on top. The two briefly worked to the feet, but Prazeres wasted no time in changing levels and driving his opponent again to the canvas. Prazeres kept his pace high on the floor, looking to advance, and Burnell did his best to counter until the bell.

The second started with a few spirited striking exchanges, including a crisp left from Burnell. A dazed Prazeres immediately show forward and exposed his neck, but Burnell had to let it go as they tumbled to the floor. From there, the powerful Prazeres simply dominated the positioning, refusing to allow Burnell any chance of a counter or escape.

In the final round, the two again opened with a few spirited strikes, but Prazeres muscled the fight to the floor, spun to position for a north-south choke and squeezed until he got the finish 89 seconds into the frame.

Prazeres (23-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) now owns a five-fight winning streak that includes two consecutive finishes. Burnell (8-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) sees a three-fight winning streak snapped in his UFC debut.
