Beltran vs. Te Huna Wiki Update Wiki

The co-main event of UFC on FUEL TV 4 saw Joey Beltran make his light heavyweight debut against James Te Huna.


Beltran came out aggressive as expected, but Te Huna backed him up with a hard punch. Te Huna looked calm and confident as he walked Beltran down and landed a big uppercut but got clipped with a right-hand counter. Te Huna came forward with a straight right and was landing more than Beltran, mixing in leg kicks as well. Te Huna began landing his straight right with abandon as Beltran circled. Beltran landed a few hard kicks to the body. Te Huna hurt Beltran with a salvo of uppercuts but Beltran circled away and stayed calm rather than firing back. Beltran got hurt again and fired back, but Te Huna was landing some bombs against the fence. The fighters exchanged in the center of the Octagon and Te Huna knocked Beltran down with a left hook then mounted him and fired off big punches, but Beltran rolled and got back to his feet. Beltran was on his way down again before the horn saved him.


Te Huna came forward confidently in the second, landing big punches and dodging most of Beltran's counters with ease. Beltran had some limited success with his jab and a few leg kicks and Te Huna took him down, but the referee stood the fighters after a period of inactivity. Both fighters slowed in the final minute and Beltran was active with light jabs and leg kicks while Te Huna stalked forward with powerful body punches. Beltran rocked Te Huna before the bell and dropped him to one knee with a hook.


Te Huna landed some huge punches to start the third that had Beltran backing off but after recovering Beltran came forward and went for a takedown that Te Huna stuffed. Both fighters exchanged and Beltran got the better of the action. Another even exchange in the center of the cage ended with a Te Huna single leg takedown. Beltran got back up but Te Huna put him right back down. Again Beltran stood and the fighters traded, neither willing to back down. Beltran shot in for a takedown as the final minute approached and got it, but Te Huna cage-walked to his feet. Beltran landed a big elbow on the break and Te Huna came back with a left hook. Both guys landed big punches before the final horn.


The judges scored the bout 30-26, 30-27, and 30-27 for Te Huna, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.


Speaking with Jon Anik following the win, Te Huna said, "I hit him with some very hard shots and they just bounced off his head. Big ups to him. He put up a good war. I hurt my hand and foot in the first round, but it was an entertaining fight and I hope you guys loved it."
