Review: 2014-09-13, good first part of the fight between Gleison Tibau and Piotr Hallmann but the rest of the bout was not so exciting: it gets two stars (UFC Fight of the Night). The black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gleison Tibau entered this fight with a pro mma record of 29-10-0 (52% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.27 lightweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat at the end of 2013, against Michael Johnson, but he came back to win in 2014 beating Pat Healy.
His opponent, Piotr Hallmann, has an official record of 15-2-0 (93% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.41 in the same weight class, he lost once in 2013 as well, against Al Iaquinta, and he won his only fight of 2014 defeating Yves Edwards (=Edwards vs Hallmann). Tibau vs Hallmann is on the undercard of Antonio Silva vs Andrei Arlovski 2 – UFC FN 51. Watch the video and rate this fight!
