Review: 2014-08-23, fight not so exciting between Thales Leites and Francis Carmont: it gets two stars (UFC Performance of the Night). The black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu Thales Leites entered this fight with a mma record of 23-4-0 (70% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.16 middleweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in 2010 when he faced Matt Horwich, since then he has collected six consecutive victories (the lst three in the Ufc).
His opponent, Francis Carmont, has an official record of 22-9-0 (73% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.17 in the same weight class, but he lost his last two bouts, both in 2014: against Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza in February (=Jacare vs Carmont) and CB Dollaway in May (=Carmont vs Dollaway). Leites vs Carmont is on the undercard of Benson Henderson vs Rafael dos Anjos – UFC FN 49. Watch the video and rate this fight!
