UFC 143 Results: Renan Barao Beats Scott Jorgensen

Earning the most impressive victory of his lengthy MMA career, Renan Barao defeated Scott Jorgensen by unanimous decision in a bantamweight fight at UFC 143. The fight extended Barao's winning streak to a whopping 28 and handed Jorgensen a tough loss. Barao looks like a future title contender.

All three judges scored it 30-27 for Barao.

In the first round Barao's striking seemed to be frustrating Jorgensen, with spinning back kicks backing Jorgensen up. In the second round Jorgensen finally succeeded in getting the fight to the ground by pulling Barao into his guard, but Barao was just fine on the ground and got back up and out-struck Jorgensen on his feet. In the third it was all standing, and that meant it was right where Barao wanted it, as he cruised to a victory.
