UFC 145 Jones Vs. Evans Results: Mac Danzig Defeats Efrain Escudero By Unanimous Decision

UFC 145 is taking place on Saturday night at the Philips Arena in Atlanta. The event will be headlined by a Light Heavyweight Championship bout between champion Jon Jones and former champ Rashad Evans.

One notable California fighter has already fought in the preliminary card, part of which aired on FX. Former The Ultimate Fighter winner Mac Danzig fights out of Los Angeles. He opened the FX prelims with a lightweight fight against Efrain Escudero.

The two fighters appeared very evenly matched and much of the fight featured extended feeling-out periods, as well as a lot of time spent in the clinch. Between the second and third rounds, it was clear that Danzig was fighting on a blown ankle, as his right ankle was visibly swollen.

The fight went the distance, but although neither fighter showed a distinct edge, Danzig appeared to be initiating more of the clinches against the cage that permeated the fight. In the end, that bore out, as Danzig won the fight by unanimous decision, on scores of 30-27, 30-27, 29-28.

There were two preliminary fights that opened the live event and aired for free on Facebook. Here are the results of those opening fights:

Featherweight bout: Marcus Brimage vs. Maximo Blanco
Brimage defeated Blanco via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 29-28).

Welterweight bout: Keith Wisniewski vs. Chris Clements
Clements defeated Wisniewski split decision (28-29, 29-28, 30-27).
