LAS VEGAS – Jailton Almeida now has wins in two divisions under the UFC banner. The Brazilian followed up his UFC debut win at light heavyweight with a victory in the heavyweight division, and did so in an impressive fashion. On the prelims of UFC Fight Night 206, Almeida (16-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) took on Parker Porter, taking the fight to his opponent from the moment the fight started. Just seconds into the fight, Almeida was already in on Porter’s hips and a moment later slammed him to the canvas. Without rushing the process, Almeida maintained top control while landing strikes from the top, until eventually finding the opportunity to lock in a rear-naked choke to force Porter (13-7 MMA, 3-2 UFC) to tap out.
