Camões vs. Escudero Wiki Update Wiki
In the eleventh bout of Tachi Palace Fights 9, UFC veterans Fabricio Camoes and Efrain Escudero faced off in a lightweight matchup. Both fighters were cut after UFC losses but had since gotten back on track with victories heading into this bout.
Camoes clinched up early but couldn't keep his hands on Escudero. Camoes kept the pace high with a low kick and then a flying knee that just missed its mark. Fabricio Camoes worked for a takedown in the clinch, couldn't get much going and engaged in a big striking exchange with Escudero. Camoes landed a few clean punches as Escudero missed the mark. Low kicks from Camoes began to accumulate, then a push kick before Escudero finally had a nice combination. Fabricio Camoes, showing off a nice boxing game, landed a good left hand before being taken down by Escudero in the waning seconds of the round.
Camoes came out flashy in round two with a spinning back kick, missing its mark but following up with a variety of punches and kicks. Escudero slipped a punch, got around to Camoes's back standing, and attempted to lift up for a takedown. Camoes broke free and got the takedown himself, on top in half-guard. Escudero did a good job getting back to his feet, barreled forward for a takedown, and in a failed move gave up full mount to Camoes. Fabricio took Escudero's back and delivered a few punches to the head.
A well-timed shot from Escudero early in round two gave him top position. Camoes was able to use the fence to stand back to his feet and clinch up with Escudero against the fence. Camoes briefly got a takedown but Escudero scooted away up wall-walked to his feet. Another takedown from Camoes, this time into guard, where he controlled Escudero until a stand-up from referee Josh Rosenthal with just over a minute left. Escudero came flying forward with a knee, stunning Camoes and ending up on top in a wild scramble. A last-ditch attempt from Escudero for a guillotine choke and the bout came to an end with a good final minute of action.
All three judges scored the bout 29-28 in favor of Fabricio Camoes.
