LAS VEGAS – Claudio Puelles beat Jordan Leavitt with a unanimous decision Saturday to open the preliminary card at UFC Fight Night 189 in Las Vegas.
Take a look inside the fight with Puelles, who won for the third straight time after a loss in his UFC debut in 2016.
“I took his undefeated record. All those hard rounds in the gym pay off. I train with some of the best in the world.”
“I have three wins in a row now. I’m still in it. I’ve been training hard every day. I know it was two years away from the octagon, but I’m still working in the gym every week. I showed some improvements, but I still have a lot to show. You’re going to see more of me.
“I just need a couple more fights and people are going to notice I’m a threat. I just need time to train and get better. Every time I step in there, people are going to see my improvements.”
“I’m definitely going to be busy this year. It’s hard to stay relevant with only one fight a year. I hope I can get two more this year.”
