Villa upsets Fickett at Rage in the Cage 113

UFC veterans Alberto Crane and Drew Fickett on Saturday helped headline in separate bouts the Arizona-based Rage in the Cage's debut in New Mexico.

In front of an official attendance guestimate of over 3,000 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Albuquerque, Fickett was surprisingly defeated by a far less accomplished Richard Villa. Put on his back from a right hand early in the second round, Fickett was ground and pounded until the referee called a stop to the bout at 34 seconds.

The other UFC vet, Alberto Crane managed to avoid the upset by snapping a two-fight losing streak with a guillotine choke submission over Adrian Valdez at 1:35 of the first round.
