Las Vegas, NV — Middleweight Dusko Todorovic got the job done with ground n’ pound in round two at UFC Vegas 62, where he picked up a win over Jordan Wright.
Speaking to media outlets including Cageside Press following the fight, Todorovic (12-3) admitted that he was exhausted — and that Wright had surprised him on the ground.
“Very tired,” Todorovic said with a laugh, before adding “just kidding.”
“On the ground, he showed me a better level than I thought he was going to be,” added Todorovic. “It was just my mistake that I attacked that guillotine. From the beginning, our plan was to box him, because I felt I would have the upper hand there. But definitely he showed good level on the ground, being on the top of course, but yeah, he surprised me there.”
The fast-paced scrap earned Fight of the Night honors, something Todorovic was hoping for immediately following the bout.
“It was definitely a tough one. I wish him [Wright] all the best. He’s a really tough guy, Jordan. I’m really glad I got that W, man.”
In terms of a return to action, Todorovic said “I think my nose is busted up, so probably some time to fix that.” That having been said, “when the UFC calls, we answer,” he added.
