UFC on FUEL 9 results: Tor Troeng defeats Adam Cella by submission

In a matchup of recent Ultimate Fighter cast mates, Tor Troeng defeated Adam Cella via rear naked choke at 3:11 of the first round.

It was a very methodical performance from the crafty Swede, who showed every aspect of his game in the win. He opened up with striking, and as Cella got used to the pace, Troeng changed tactics and went low for the takedown. He got it, and quickly worked to improve position, first moving to half-guard, then full mount, and eventually taking Cella's back, where he used strikes to get underneath Cella's neck for the tap.

Fighting in front of his home countrymen at the Ericsson Globe, Troeng enjoyed a hero's welcome and a similar reception upon earning the victory.
