Filed under: News , UFC , Videos DENVER – Jason Gonzalez ’s early success against J.C. Cottrell came on the feet, but it was his skills on the mat that ultimately decided the fight. After rocking Cottrell (17-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) with a well-timed uppercut early in the first, Gonzalez (11-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) reversed Cottrell’s attempts to turn the fight into a grappling match and nabbed a D’Arce choke to force the submission at the 3:54 mark of Round 1. The lightweight bout opened up the preliminary card of today’s UFC on FOX 23 event at Pepsi Center in Denver. It streamed on UFC Fight Pass ahead of additional prelims on FS1 and a main card on FOX.
