Despite giving up over 40 pounds, Marcel Fortuna made a successful UFC debut at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, Texas.
The light heavyweight fighter took on UFC veteran Anthony Hamilton in a heavyweight bout. Fortuna weighed in at 210.5 pounds, while Hamilton weighed 258.5, but that didn’t stop the Brazilian from scoring an impressive first-round knockout. With this victory, Fortuna is now 9-1 as a professional fighter, and rides a six-fight winning streak.
In his post-fight speech, Fortuna announced that he will be returning to the 205-pound division.
