UFC Denver’s second televised bout saw a battle of lightweights on winning streaks, as Davi Ramos took on John Gunther, and Ramos won his third straight.
It’s hard to break through at 155 pounds, but that’s exactly what Davi Ramos and John Gunther looked to do at UFC Denver. On Saturday night, the pair faced off, the second fight in on the Fox Sports 1 prelims. Ramos went into the fight looking for his third straight win in the UFC’s lightweight division. John Gunther, meanwhile, won his UFC debut only a couple of months ago against Allan Zuniga at the Ultimate Fighter Finale in July. Gunther remained undefeated, technically, as his loss on TUF 27 was an exhibition bout.
Davi Ramos showed why he is considered one of the best grapplers at lightweight with his victory at UFC Denver. He immediately looked for the takedown, and took Gunther on the ground. He then quickly transitioned to the back and got his hooks in as he looked for the rear naked choke. It wasn’t long before he got it under the neck, and the choke was in tight. Gunther looked like he might go out, and tapped at the last moment. That was all she wrote. Ramos finished it inside of two minutes.
