UFC on FX 5 main card recap: Silva KO’s Browne, Dodson cements flyweight No.1 contender status, Edwards submits Neer, Ellenberger bests Hieron

UFC flyweight No. 1 contender John Dodson

The “UFC on FX 5” main card exhibited a little bit of everything for the crowd inside the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Antonio “Big Foot” Silva acquired his first UFC victory against Travis Browne in the night’s main event.

Browne displayed some crafty, yet odd footwork for a big man.  The movement with the tootsies didn’t last long, though, as Browne tweaked his left knee early in the match.  “Big Foot”

John Dodson made it official that he will be the next fighter to compete for the UFC flyweight title by defeating Jussier Formiga.

In a bout that was everything short of exciting, the end brought a bang.  Dodson dropped Formiga with a punch midway through the second frame, but followed up with another knock down later in the round and finished the match off.

The first round was a bit of a feeling out process, but both combatants were staying fairly bisy.  The pace picked up in Round 2 when Ellenberger executed a textbook takedown and fed Hieron a flurry of shots.  Hieron made his way back to his feet with a bloodied face in tow.

Starting Round 3 both fighters came to the center of the Octagon with bleeding noses.  Hieron let his fists go, but ended up on his back when Ellenberger hit a beautiful double-leg takedown.  The “Thoroughbred” managed to get the bout standing again, although, his striking wasn’t connecting enough to make a difference.

It was a contest that wasn’t jam packed full of excitement, but both athletes fought with an intelligent strategy.

Dodson said to Jon Anik following the bout that he is looking forward to facing the lightning fast Demetrious Johnson in the UFC flyweight title match.

Justin Edwards wasted no time putting an end to Josh Neer’s night.

The two combatants engaged in an exchange to initiate the bout, but the match was on the mat within moments.  At just 24 seconds into the first round, Edwards locked on a guillotine-choke and strangled Neer unconscious.
