Joseph Holmes’s first UFC win was a memorable one.
The middleweight fighter scored his first promotional victory at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 206 in Las Vegas. Holmes (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) submitted Alen Amedovski with a rear-naked choke in the first round of their contest to close out the preliminary card. The official stoppage was at the 1:04 mark
It was a quick night for Holmes. He drove a strong knee right down the middle to connect on Amedovski’s chin and drop him to the canvas. From there, Holmes pounced and was able to sink in a rear-naked choke to get the tap.
Holmes was coming off a unanimous decision loss to Jamie Pickett back in January. That defeat marked his first fight with the UFC. Prior to the defeat, Holmes was on a seven-fight winning streak.
