UFC 160 results recap: Facebook fights

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

A brief recap of every UFC 160 Facebook card bout.

Stephen Thompson defeated Nah-Shon Burrell via unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)

I had picked Burrell as a sleeper in this fight but he quickly had me regretting the move. Either entering or leaving striking distance, Thompson seemed to come out on top after each exchange. Burrell never looked comfortable with Thompson's use of the sideways, karate stance which seemed to completely disrupt his timing. Only managing to score intermittent shots in the clinch or during brief exchanges, there wasn't much surprise when the judges scored the bout for Thompson.


George Roop defeated Brian Bowles via TKO at 1:43 of round two

After initially putting Roop in some serious danger with a nasty mounted guillotine choke, Bowles seemed to be fading fast. There was at least one instance where, after taking a hard front kick from Roop, Bowles had a look on his face that showed he rather be somewhere else. Bowles' nearly two-year absence from fighting reared its ugly head after a dominant first round. After landing a hard jab that sent Bowles reeling, Roop was able to pounce to force a TKO stoppage.


Jeremy Stephens defeated Estevan Payan via unanimous decision (30-26 x2, 30-27)

Aside from maybe the opening minute, Payan never looked to be in this fight. Be it UFC jitters or an extremely game opponent in Stephens, Payan looked outclassed nearly from the opening bell. The only memorable thing about this fight would seem to be a cut landed to Payan's forehead that drowned the mat in blood. Stephens looked great in his featherweight debut and should be an interesting new addition to the division.
