“The Irish Dragon” Paul Felder got the better of a three-round standup battle with the company’s #10 ranked James Vick in the UFC Phoenix co-main event.

Felder landed some hard haymakers in the opening round, plus a spinning elbow that hit its mark. Vick landed quite a few clean crosses of his own. Some more solid right hands landed for both guys throughout, as well as a fair amount of leg kicks. Felder had a big moment when he wobbled Vick, and chased him down in an attempt to finish. Some damaging calf kicks also scored for Felder, forcing Vick to limp on a few occasions.
