A flyweight scrap between Marco Beltran and Deiveson Alcantra kicked off tonight’s UFC 212 event in Brazil.
Round one begins and Beltran starts off the action with a pair of low kicks. Alcantara answers with a kick to the body and then shoots in for a takedown. Beltran is able to initially defend but soon after Deiveson puts him on his back. Alcantara is looking to pass to half guard but Beltran is defending well. Deiveson eventually moves half guard and then locks in a guillotine choke. Alcantara drops down in an attempt to secure the submission. It appears to be tight but Beltran fights off the hold and pops his head out. Beltran immediately begins raining down elbows from the top position. He works in a left hand and then lands another hard elbow. Alcantara scrambles and gets back to his feet. Round one comes to an end.
