Demian Maia walked home with a huge win from UFC Fight Night Singapore after he submitted Ben Askren via a rear naked choke in the third round of the main event.

Against expectations, Maia and Askren spent a major portion of the fight standing and trading. While the striking was basic, few exchanges that the fighters had on the ground were a treat to watch for the fans.

Askren was visibly ahead after the first two rounds but tides changed in the third when Maia locked in an RNC and made Askren tap out. This is the second straight defeat for Askren after losing to Jorge Masvidal earlier this year.

In the co-main event, Stevie Ray got the better of Micheal Johnson in a close fight. Johnson showcased some crisp boxing in the first two rounds but was taken down by Ray in the third round. The takedown changed the fate of the fight and swung things in favour of Ray who took home the win via a majority decision.

Beneil Dariush and Cyril Gane also secured wins in the main card via submission finishes while Muslim Salikhov got a unanimous decision win. Below are the complete results from the event.
