Jesse Juarez successfully defended his Welterweight title against Aussie fighter Robert Whittaker by scoring a unanimous decision on Friday night.
In what was a back and forth match, it was Juarez's wrestling that was the deciding factor against the talented Australian. Juarez moves to 18-8 while Whittaker suffers only his second career defeat.
In the co-main event Soa 'The Hulk' Palelei only needed 12 seconds to end fellow Pride veteran Bob 'The Beast' Sapp's night. Sapp charged at Palelei looking for the takedown only to have Palelei stuff it get on top to unload punches before the ref had seen enough and called a stop to the contest. The win was Palelei's 7th in row while Sapp now has a 11-13 record.
