Joe Soto locks slick heel-hook submission on Marco Beltran

Taking a very short-notice fight in Mexico City's high altitude wasn't an issue for Joe Soto.

Soto, who took on Mexico's Marco Beltran at UFC Fight Night 98, took less than two minutes to leave the Octagon with a win. The 29-year-old American fighter submitted Beltran with a slick heel hook at the 1:37 mark of round one.

Soto has now put together two wins in a row, snapping a three-fight losing streak that began with his UFC debut and title fight with T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 177. This win puts Soto's professional record to 17-5.
