Following an extended three-week break from face-punching action, the UFC returned with a fun fight card in its debut event in Bangor, Maine. The card was headlined by a main event between No. 8 ranked Ryan Bader and 10th ranked Ovince Saint Preux and featured a co-main event between lightweights Gray Maynard and Ross Pearson.
Here is Dallas Winston's play-by-play for the second round of the fight:
Maynard shoots but settles for some clinch control on the fence. Pearson circles off and lands a short knee and elbow before disengaging. They trade jabs. Maynard digs to the body with a right hook but Pearson pops him with a right hand on the way in and then finishes him off with a left hook.
