After being initially relegated, a promising featherweight matchup between Terrence McKinney and Eric Gonzalez got a boost after losing a few fights at UFC Vegas 59.

McKinney looked to bounce back from the wild, but ended up losing against Drew Dober in March. Meanwhile, Gonzalez hopes to do the same after being eliminated by Jim Miller in October.

Early on, McKinney opened fire and Gonzalez was on the defensive. Gonzalez slipped but was able to recover before McKinney took advantage. “T.Wrecks” continued to heat up, firing some knees into the body. Gonzalez then grabbed McKinney in and stopped him — but McKinney changed the level and put Gonzalez on his back.

From there, Gonzalez moved to the fence, but McKinney climbed back, locked into a body triangle, and under the neck. Gonzalez gave a thumbs up for a moment, but it didn’t take long before he was forced to click. That’s the fight — McKinney once again made it through the opening round, this time with a clever submission.

After the win, McKinney called out Paddy “The Bad Guy” Pimburett, noting that fans wanted it, possibly for a date on the UFC 281 card in November.
