UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. LaFlare full fight video highlights

Watch the full fight video highlights for the UFC Fight Night 62 main event between Demian Maia and Ryan LaFlare.

The main event of the UFC Fight Night 62 event featured a five-round welterweight contest between Demian Maia and Ryan LaFlare.

Check out Dallas Winston's play-by-play for the fifth round below:

LaFlare pressures with a combo and goes downstairs, causing Maia to jog out of striking range. Maia looks to get buzzed from the next LaFlare combination and his takedown attempt is somewhat sluggish. Maia tries to pull guard and looks too tired to get back up when LaFlare backs off. Now Maia is pulling guard out of desperation and referee John McCarthy has to bark at Maia to "get up, now!" after he's painfully slow to stand back up again.

The cycle repeats and McCarthy warns Maia that he'll take a point if he doesn't get up. On the restart, Maia telegraphs a takedown and LaFlare catches him with a knee, but Maia endures it to finish the takedown. LaFlare escapes and Maia takes his time standing up again, then flops on his back as the ten-second clapper sounds. McCarthy waves him back up and takes a point, likely for timidity. 10-8 LaFlare with the point deduction. I have it 48-46 Maia.
