Norman Parke, welcome to the UFC.

The fight, which was featured on the UFC on FX 6 main card, was scored his way 30-27, 30-27, 29-28.
Parke fought a seasoned bout, mixing up his offense well. He was able to land combos from the outside, get in the clinch when he wanted to, and take the fight to the ground occasionally.
Parke wasn't able to finish but came close on one occasion, nearly locking in a rear naked choke before Fletcher found an escape.
Fletcher fought gamely but wasn't able to sustain his offense enough to make an impact in the judges' minds.

Fletcher fell to 8-2.
