Oumar Sy, best known for a run in KSW, and Bellator MMA vet Tuco Tokkos arrived in the UFC on Saturday, facing off in light heavyweight action at UFC Vegas 92.

Tokkos had lost both of his Bellator fights, and despite some decent showings on the regional circuit, the match-up saw Sy as a solid favorite.

Round one started and Tokkos opened up with a series of kicks. Soon after, Oumar Sy shot in on the legs and got an easy takedown. Sy was able to posture up and throw the legs to the side. It gave Tokkos a false sense of security to try to scramble to his feet. Sy capitalized and instead took the back.

Tokkos had wrist control which for a little bit saved himself from being put in a bad position. He made it to his feet briefly but Sy dragged him right back down. Tokkos was doing a good job of not accepting the bottom but got too careless and let Sy take his back with the body triangle. It wasn’t long after until Sy got his hands free and forced Tokkos to tap with the rear-naked choke!

Official Result: Oumar Sy def. Tuco Tokkos by submission (rear-naked choke), Round 1, 3:43
