The 220 pound Catch-Weight fight was dominated by Almeida, once he took Turkalj to the canvas. Almeida secured his ninth submission victory with a rear naked choke at exactly 4:27 of the opening round.

Almeida came forward, putting the pressure on Turkalj, who did his best to stay calm and avoid getting cornered or locked in a place of no return. Almeida showed some good movement on the mat, making Turkalj fight exactly how, he would like him to fight.

At some point, Turkalj had to choose between three fight ending options, a ground & pound, a Rear naked choke and an arm triangle choke but obviously the second was the best for him, leaving Almeida no choice but to lock up the choke and end it easy.

Almeida has now accumulated three straight victories since moving down from heavyweight and has maintained his 100% finishing rate. For Turkalj, bouncing back from this loss will require strategic plan and that takes him back to the drawing board.

Turkalj took the fight on short notice after Shamil Abdurakhimov pulled out and was looking to build on his UFC Contract sealing performance at the Contender Series, two months ago.
