Wilson Reis Takes Care Of Scott Jorgensen At UFC 179

Brian Stann had the line of the night at UFC 179 Saturday evening, and it came early in the show.

After Wilson Reis landed a body kick that appeared to knock the wind out of Scott Jorgensen, Stann declared the move a “soul kick” because of what it did to Jorgensen. Reis quickly pounced, locking up a submission for his 19th career win.

“I knew he was hurt and I just went in with the punches,” Reis said. “I have a short memory after that…just remembering I got the choke.”

Since joining the UFC, Reis (19-5) has gone 3-1, including back-to-back wins in the flyweight division. He is 7-1 in his last eight overall, including four wins via submission.

“I felt (Jorgensen) had a weakness against southpaws,” Reis said. “I made some mistakes early in the fight, but when I heard the snap (from the kick), I knew he was hurt.”

Jorgensen falls to 15-10 in his career after missing weight due to issues with his travel to Brazil. Mike Goldberg stated he suffered a broken rib after the fight.
