Mehdi Zatout moved passed Leo Pinto in the co-main event to keep his win streak going. The youthful Pinto could not overcome Zatout's experience, but had his own moments throughout the contest. Zatout's victory could put him closer to breaking through on the ONE Athlete Rankings.

40-year-old Akihiro Fujisawa, a ONE Warrior Series Contract Winner, rebuked Father Time with a first-round knockout. The martial arts veteran had been on a losing skid, but the emphatic knockout erased the bad taste in his mouth and put him back in the win column with a memorable finish.

When The Fast and the Furious (2001) sped into the psyche's of illegal street racing enthusiasts, with a penchant for danger and the psychotic insanity of arrant automotive adventure, the brusque bearish, quasi-hero rebel, Dominic "Dom" Toretto was caustic yet salvationally portrayed with the power of a train using a Vin Diesel engine.

Sean Strickland turned in a solid, workman-like performance to extend his UFC win streak to five defeating Uriah Hall by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC on ESPN 28 Saturday in Las Vegas. The pair had been in the cage as training partners before but, when it counted, Strickland had the edge with the harder punches and the superior clinch and ground games.

Hall looked like he had trouble getting off all evening, occasionally showing flashes of his exciting stand up skills but at other times seeming a little lackluster. Strickland dominated much of the middleweight bout with solid jabs and thudding overhand rights. Whenever his opponent did seek to make something happen, Strickland seemed largely unfazed. By the end of the fight he appeared to be walking through Hall's punches and simply shoving Hall back against the fence to control the action.
