There was mixed fortunes for the Irish fighters at UFC Dublin. Hometown hero Paddy Holohan was submitted by Hawaiian Louis Smolka and Cathal Pendred got his face rearranged several times during his 4 minute cameo against Tom Breese. But Aisling Daly picked up a dominant decision win over Ericka Almeida and Neil Seery blew the roof off the 3 Arena with an unbelievable guillotine choke tap out of Jon Delos Reyes.
Cathal Pendred v Tom Bresse
While he is a fellow Irishman it was slightly satisfying to see Pendred get knocked out. The man has the charisma of Jose Mourinho after a bad loss when he’s in the octagon.
Paddy Holohan v Louis Smolka
Holohan and Smolka put on a grappling masterclass in the first round, but ultimately it was Smolka’s superior striking that put “The Hooligan” down and allowed Smolka to get the submission.
Neil Seery v Jon Delos Reyes
The only Irish fighter to get the finish last night was Two Tap Seery and by the power of bacon what a finish it was. Just watch.
