UFC on FX 6 results recap: Main Card

Matt Roberts

UFC on FX 6 served as a finale of sorts for The Smashes, an Ultimate Fighter show pitting Australia vs. United Kingdom. The main event was a battle of coaches between George Sotiropoulos and Ross Pearson, but this recap will look at the two TUF final bouts and the opening fight of the main card. The lightweight fight featured two UK fighters, while the welterweight bout was Aussie vs. Brit. Here's a look at how things went down in Gold Coast.

Robert Whittaker defeated Bradley Scott by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Whittaker (10-2, 1-0 UFC) controlled the first round with some solid striking, while Scott (8-2, 0-1 UFC) got a takedown in the second and controlled that stanza. The fight was fairly even going into the final two minutes, but Whittaker took over and won the decision. The Australian earned the six figure contract and was the first welterweight winner of The Smashes.

Norman Parke defeated Colin Fletcher by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)

Parke (16-2, 1-0 UFC) completely controlled the first two rounds with takedowns and work from half guard and side control. Fletcher (8-2, 0-1 UFC) managed to get up before the end of each round, but wasn't able to turn things around enough to win them. The third round was contested on the feet and Fletcher had a better round, but it was too late by then. Parke claimed the lightweight contract.

Hector Lombard defeated Rousimar Palhares by TKO (punches), 3:38 of round 1

Palhares (14-5, 7-4 UFC) was never really in the fight. Lombard (32-3-1, 1 NC, 1-1 UFC) stalked him around the cage, landing some solid shots and showing little regard for Palhares' offense. Finally he backed Palhares up against the cage and landed some huge punches that put Toquinho down and out. It was the former Bellator middleweight champion's first win in the UFC, and it came in devastating fashion. Palhares dropped his second bout in a row.
