UFC Fight Night 150 Results - Main Card
#1. Roosevelt Roberts (7-0) vs. Thomas Gifford (14-7-0-2) (Lightweight)
The main card proceedings were kicked off by a fight between the undefeated Roosevelt Roberts against UFC debutant Thomas Gifford. Roosevelt was the -450 favourite heading into the bout and he surely justified the claim with a dominating performance against Grifford.
Gifford tried his best to take the fight to Roosevelt. The undefeated Florida-born fighter, though, was having none of it as he took Grifford down in the first round and worked towards getting a submission.
Roosevelt got Grifford down again in the second round and put on a solid display with some hard-hitting ground and pound. Gifford had no answer by the time the third round rolled by, and all Roberts had to do was to not make a careless mistake.
Result: Roosevelt Roberts def. Thomas Gifford via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
