UFC on FX 2 lived up to expectations, with the main card delivering some very entertaining bouts. Here are the results of the UFC on FX 2 fight card held on March, 2 at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia:
Martin Kampmann defeats Thiago Alves
Alves quickly established himself as the better striker at UFC on FX 2, but Kampmann refused to give up. With less than a minute left in the bout, Thiago made a huge mistake, leaving his neck out on a takedown attempt. Kampmann capitalized on the error, securing a guillotine choke, transitioning to the mount and finishing the submission.
Joseph Benavidez defeats Yasuhiro Urushitani
After imposing his will on Urushitani in the first round, Benavidez sealed the deal 11 seconds into the second round, catching Yasuhiro with a big counter-right and following up with some ground-and-pound.
Demetrious Johnson defeats Ian McCall
The first flyweight bout in the Ultimate Fighting Championship was definitely a memorable one, as Johnson and McCall opened up the division in style at UFC on FX 2. The first two rounds were pretty close (I scored round one 10-10 and gave Johnson the second) but McCall took control of the fight in the third round, taking “Mighty Mouse” to the ground and punishing him with some vicious ground-and-pound (scored the round 10-8 for McCall). Unfortunately for McCall, the judges weren’t impressed with his strong finish, and they gave Johnson the decision.
Constantinos Philippou defeats Court McGee
Both men put on an entertaining show at UFC on FX 2, exchanging hard shots throughout the fight. Philippou was a little more impressive though, landing the cleaner – and harder – strikes and stuffing multiple takedowns. All three judges gave Constantinos the nod.
James Te Huna defeats Aaron Rosa
Te Huna went straight to work against Rosa, pinning him against the cage and blasting away with some big shots. Rosa eventually hit the canvas. And Te Huna continued his brutal assault, forcing referee Leon Roberts to stop the fight.

Steven Siler defeats Cole Miller (unanimous decision)
Andrew Craig defeats Kyle Noke (unanimous decision)
T.J. Waldburger defeats Jake Hecht (armbar, round one)
