The second main card bout at UFC Fight Night 211 in Las Vegas, Yusuff (13-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC) utilized his clinch early on the charging Shainis (12-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC). Unable to escape Yusuff’s clutches, Shainis ate a variety of knees. Shainis shot for a takedown and Yusuff snatched his neck. With a tight grip, Yusuff pulled for a guillotine choke – and got the tap.
