The fourth bout at UFC Vegas 8 saw the fourth submission in a row. The contest featured Alex Caceres aka “Bruce Leeroy” facing off Austin Springer in a 151-pound catchweight. The latter, who stepped in on a short notice for Kevin Croom, missed featherweight limit.
The scheduled for three rounds matchup ended at 3:38. When Springer attempted to take his opponent down, Caceres turned it around and quickly applied a rear naked choke, forcing his opponent to tap out. One can say the latter almost went to sleep.
