UFC Fight Night 74: Stellar Bantamweight Debut For Arantes

ufc fight night 74

Felipe Arantes came into Canada and stunned the fans, submitting Yves Jabouin Sunday night at UFC Fight Night 74.

The win moved Arantes’ (17-7-1) Octagon mark to 4-3-1 overall, including two finishes. He has been with the promotion since 2011, but made the move to bantamweight for this fight.

“I was lazy before, I liked eating,” Arantes said. “I had a little shame on my face, but I want to continue in this weight class.”

Arantes was coming off an October decision loss to Andre Fili, and this marked the first time since a 2013 TKO finish of Godofredo Pepey that he ended the contest early.

“I felt very welcomed here,” said Arantes, who owns five career submission wins now. “I am sure I will come back.”

Jabouin (20-11) suffered his second straight loss, having been finished by Arantes’ teammate, Thomas Almeida, this past April.
