UFC Fight Night 151 Results - Main Card
#1. Marc-Andre Barriault (11-1-0) vs. Andrew Sanchez (10-4-0) (Middleweight)
The 'Power-Bar' Marc Andre Barriault was on an 8-fight win streak coming into the main card opener, while his opponent, Andrew Sanchez had won his last fight against Markus Perez in August 2018. This was Barriault's UFC debut and Dana White wasn't intending to go easy on the newbie as he put him up against Sanchez, who was no spring chicken.
The fans inside the arena were firmly behind the UFC debutant. However, that didn't help his cause as he fell to a unanimous decision loss to Sanchez.
The fight was quite even going into the third round as both men had their moments. Sanchez took the first round by getting the better of the exchanges, and the same happened to Barriault, who landed more volume in the second round.
Sanchez managed to land a full takedown in the third round and controlled the fight when it mattered to most, to give him an edge in the judges' eyes.
A forgettable first Octagon experience for the Power-Bar meant Sanchez brought up his second consecutive victory.
Result: Andrew Sanchez def. Andre Barriault via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
