Brazilian heavyweight Augusto Sakai is hoping for three fights when he faces Sergey Spivak at UFC Vegas 59 on Saturday night.

Before the game, Sakai had moved to Florida’s top American team. But it was Moldova’s Spivac who had the perfect game plan for him.

It was Spivac who landed a tour early, although Sakai quickly rose to his feet. Spivac sent the Brazilian to the guillotine on the way up, but didn’t. Moments later, he did get knocked down again and managed to isolate an arm, an elbow and a left hand. Sakai finally climbed to the fence, but gave up his back and Spivac hooked. Sakai still managed to get back on his feet, only to be dragged back. Moments later, it came back up, then dropped back as the Spivac landed again.

Spivak, from behind, was able to put some hammers and fists on the ears. Sakai rushed to the fence again, building up his strength and landing some knees in the clench. But on the feet, in Sakai’s cab, it was Spivak’s clean right hand on the ground.

A bloody Sakai was knocked down again early in the second, and when he got back on his feet, it wasn’t long. Sakai knelt down on his back again, looking for his way up. That allowed Spivacs to get more shots, and before long, his performance was enough to force the referee to make a call.

Official result: Sergey Spivak def. Augusto Sakai, TKO, Round 2, 3:42
