UFC Fight Night 88: Jake Collier Destroys Alberto Uda

ufc fight night 88

Jake Collier put his name in the UFC history books, landing just the fourth spinning back-kick to the body finish in promotion history Sunday night at UFC Fight Night 88.

Collier (10-3) had gone just 1-2 over his first three Octagon appearances, so he knew a strong showing was needed vs. Alberto Uda, who came in unbeaten.

“I feel like you have to win every fight here,” he said. “You have to look good. You can’t snooze for all three rounds and expect to keep fighting (with the UFC). I am here to put on shows, win or lose.”

In the opening moments, Uda caught Collier with a shot that busted open his nose. Following a back-and-forth first round, it was Collier who took charge in the second.

“My corner told me to go out and attack and that’s what I did,” Collier said. “I feel in love with the spinning attacks my last couple of camps so I thought I’d try it.

“I saw he was trying to play it off, but I knew it was time to get him out of there.”

After a loss to Vitor Miranda in his UFC debut two years ago, Collier scored a split decision vs. Ricardo Abreu last year. He closed out 2015 with a second round TKO defeat to Dong Yi Yang.
