Marcin Held dropped to 0-3 in the UFC after Damir Hadzovic’s beautifully timed knee put him away in round 3.
The first fight at UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira in Stockholm, Sweden featured a remarkable finish. Damir Hadzovic was clearly two rounds down against former Bellator lightweight contender Marcin Held, but Held’s ill-fated Imanari roll early in round 3 was met with a perfectly-timed knee by the Bosnian. Held was out on that strike, but Hadzovic threw one punch for good measure before the fight was stopped. Hadzovic gets his first UFC win at the expense of Held, who drops to 0-3.
