Harris vs. Uyenoyama Wiki Update Wiki

Phil Harris made his UFC debut against Darren Uyenoyama on the preliminary card of UFC on FX 5 in the flyweight division.

Round 1

After jockeying for position in the clinch for some time, Harris got a takedown and found himself defending a few submission attempts before Uyenoyama got back to his feet. Both men threw heavy strikes on the feet, with neither landing flush.

Round 2

The flyweights appeared evenly matched in the strength department but Uyenoyama eventually got a nice takedown and worked from the top. Eventually Uyenoyama took Harris's back in a scramble and drew the reluctant tap with a tight Rear Naked Choke.

The end came 3:38 into the second round, giving Uyenoyama the submission victory. Speaking with Jon Anik following the win, Uyenoyama said, "BJJ 101, taking the back. I watched Kenny Florian vs. Joe Stevenson while I was warming up and I was just trying to be like the man.
