Billy Quarantillo and Spike Carlyle put on a spectacular performance at UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs Burns at APEX in Las Vegas on May 31 (AEST). The pair squared off in a three-round 150-pound catchweight battle, right before the co-main event.

From the opening seconds the encounter saw fireworks, when Carlyle launched forward with the jumping front kick to the face. “Alpha Ginger” also took “a leisurely stroll before the round even ended” (via ESPNMMA) – after landing several shots on the ground, he stood up, turned his back and started walking away. Quarantillo was also back on his feet and delivered left hook from behind.

A very competitive fight has also seen dozens of bombs, including straight and over hand right, hooks, kicks and everything in between. You can watch the highlight clips below.

In the end, Billy Quarantillo won the bout by a close unanimous decision (29-28 x3) and updated his record to 14-2. Spike Carlyle dropped to 9-2, which snapped his five-fight win streak.
