The second bout of UFC 149 saw Daniel Pineda take on Antonio Carvalho in the featherweight division.
Pineda took the center of the cage and landed a nice leg kick with a good combo but Carvalho fired right back. Carvalho knocked Pineda off his feet with a head kick but Pineda scrambled up and landed a big knee. Pineda came forward again and Carvalho flattened him with a right hand then finished him off with a few more heavy ones.

Speaking with Joe Rogan following the victory, Carvalho said, "I got a little emotional at the end, but listen to this; look at this. I have a great Thai coach and he worked on my extension. Daniel's an amazing fighter and he took it on short notice to come into our back yard and fight, so please remember that."
