The matchup of former training partners and friends went the way of Rafael Fiziev on Saturday with a win over Brad Riddell in the UFC on ESPN 31 co-main event. After spending time training together in Thailand roughly four years ago, the streaking lightweights were paired up to see who would take the next step forward in the bout, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It was competitive up until the finish, when Fiziev (11-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) uncorked a slick wheel kick that rocked Riddell (10-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and led to the TKO at the 2:20 mark of Round 3.
