UFC on Fuel 4 Results: James Te Huna Wins Slugfest Over Joey Beltran

Kyle Terada, US PRESSWIRE

The UFC on Fuel 4 light heavyweight matchup between James Te Huna and Joey Beltran was billed as a potential slugfest.

That much was true. But the first two rounds mainly consisted of Te Huna doing the slugging and Beltran getting slugged.

Te Huna was the more technical and superior striker. And while Beltran, the brawler from San Diego, put in a spirited effort in the third round, it wasn't enough. Te Huna won via unanimous decision, taking scores of 30-26, 30-27, 20-27.



In the opening round, Te Huna scored the most significant strikes in a light heavyweight round in UFC history , landing 71. Beltran, known as "The Mexicutioner" and also known for his grantie chin, managed to survive to the final horn, though he was nearly finished.

Te Huna also handily took the second round. In the third, Beltran, who was fighting at 205 pounds for the first time after a career spent as a heavyweight, gave it everything he had to give as Te Huna tired, but it wasn't enough. The fight ended with both fighters exchanging haymakers.

"He's very hard, I hit him with some really hard shots that just bounced off his head that I thought would knock him out." said Te Huna. The Australian improved to 15-5 in winning his third straight fight.
