UFC 116 Results: Ricardo Romero Survives Early Scare to Submit Seth Petruzelli

It looked like Seth Petruzelli would continue his Kimbo killing ways, then Ricardo Romero found an armbar.

Petruzelli started off fast, throwing effective strikes that hurt Romero. Petruzelli looked to be on his way to another upset until Romero composed himself and finished a takedown. Romero looked sloppy, but showed a clear dominance over Petruzelli on the floor.

Before the end of the round, Petruzelli worked back to his feet. Visibly tired, he landed a left hook that put Romero down. Both men were breathing heavily on their way to their corners.

Round two saw more of the same. Petruzelli, still very tired, landed effectively on Romero. When the fight hit the floor, again, Romero made sure he didn't let it back up. With a visibly exhausted Petruzelli underneath him, Romero eventually secured a crucifix which led to a straight armbar for the finish.
