Liveblog: UCC 4 Part 5
The heavyweights are on deck again, and it's Rolles Gracie vs. Braden Bice. This one is predictably quick, as Gracie misses with a kick but reverses Bice on the ground and slaps on the head/arm choke. The tap comes at 1:05 of Round 1. Last bout and it's TUF vet Andy Main and Gold Team rep Felipe Arantes for the 145 belt. This match-up is awesome on so many levels, and all those levels involve violence and carnage. Employing his unique brand of face-punching and a decent reach advantage, Main mixes it up nicely with the Brazilian. But things go south quickly when Arantes accidentally kicks Main in the chops when the American is on all fours. The doctor waives the bout off after examining Main, rendering the bout a "no contest" at 4:38 or Round 1. And we're done.
