Filed under: News , UFC , Videos Perhaps no moment in Yair Rodriguez ’s career sums up the excitement over his potential than his knockout of Andre Fili at UFC 197. Facing veteran featherweight Fili (15-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at the event from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 23, Rodriguez (8-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) dominated in every aspect of the game. With early takedowns and heavy ground-and-pound along with knockdowns from hard leg kicks, Rodriguez seemed able to cruise to a fourth straight decision win in the octagon. Instead, he uncorked a head kick that sent Fili to the canvas and ended the bout at the 2:15 mark of Round 2. Rodriguez will next face Alex Caceres (12-8 MMA, 7-6 UFC) on Saturday in the main event of UFC Fight Night 92.
