UFC 250 free fight: Aljamain Sterling outstrikes Pedro Munhoz for fourth win in a row

Recommended Posts

Aljamain Sterling looked to enter the race for title contention when he squared off with a fellow streaking bantamweight.

Sterling (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) faced Pedro Munhoz at UFC 238, with both men looking for their fourth consecutive win. Many expected Sterling’s route to victory to be on the ground, but instead he stood toe to toe with Munhoz for all three rounds.

In Round 1, Sterling used his length, attacking Munhoz with a variety of kicking techniques. Munhoz pressed forward, trying to close the distance, but Sterling did a good job of evading any significant shots.

Sterling continued to stick and move in Round 2, using his reach advantage to continuously pepper Munhoz with strikes. But Munhoz started to find some success with his forward pressure, digging into Sterling’s body and hurting him low to the legs.

In Round 3, the pace started to slow down from both men, but Sterling was still able to find a home for his jab. Munhoz managed to stuff all of Sterling’s takedown attempts but after three rounds, Sterling had out-landed Munhoz, sweeping all three judges’ scorecards.
