Michael Chiesa vs. Anton Kuivanen Results

By February 23, 2013

Follow me on:

A former TUF champion in Michael Chiesa vs. Anton Kuivanen at UFC 157. Here is how it all went down.

The first round saw a pretty even striking battle in terms of amount of strikes landed. That said, Kuivanen hit harder with his punches. On the flip side, Chiesa landed two late takedowns. Neither did damage, but they were point grabbers.

Not sure who won round one; it was close.

The major news from round two involved Chiesa taking Kuivanen's back on their feet and keeping the position as the two went to the ground. From there, he began looking for the rear naked choke. And eventually, he sunk it in.

Michael Chiesa defeats Anton Kuivanen by rear naked choke at 2:29 of round two.

The rear naked choke is a masterful hold and almost impossible to break away from when properly applied by a mixed martial arts expert.
