UFC on Fuel 7 results: Danny Castillo stifles Paul Sass

Esther Lin

There are no secrets to Paul Sass's game plan: the Liverpool lightweight goes for submissions early and often, with 12 subs in his 13 career wins.

Danny Castillo knew this and didn't care. The Team Alpha Male fighter showed Sass little respect Saturday, as he went straight to the ground and dominated Sass. Castillo won their UFC on Fuel 7 at London's Wembley Arena via scores of 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28.

Sass got off to a fast start in round one with a triangle on a standing Castillo, but Castillo broke out. Throughout the first round, Sass went for several leglocks and heel hooks, but Castillo survived them and took control as the round went on.

In the second, it was clear Sass didn't have much of a Plan B. Sass managed to get an armbar, but Castillo picked Sass up and slammed him to break it. Castillo dominated the rest of the second round and then most of the third.

Castillo improved to 15-5 and won for the fourth time in the past five fights; Sass lost his second in a row and dropped to 13-2.
