Flyweights bring it in almost every bout and McCall-Santos was certainly no exception on that front. The fight featured a number of evenly-contested exchanges and each competitor found himself in trouble at certain points in the pairing. McCall walked away with a decision win in the end, but both men had a reason to smile once the smoke cleared after earning an extra $50,000 for the evening’s top effort.
The UFC invaded Brazil this year with full force after some past forays into the fight-friendly country, scheduling a slew of shows including next week’s lineup for UFC Fight Night 29.
