The Underground News, Editor
 

Though both men are known for fireworks in their fists, the fight never escalated to its potential. There were moments where both fighters got their licks in, but the fisticuffs never exploded into a knockout.

Philippou, however, nearly scored an omo plata shoulder lock finish in round two, but even though he had a deep lock, he didn’t seem to know how to put on the finishing touches.

In the end, Philippou did do enough in the judges’ eyes, at least two of them, to score the split decision victory. The Cyprus fighter didn’t appear too pleased with his first UFC victory.

Was rooting for Jorge to win and retire on a good note, but that looks like a 29-28 for Philippou
