Dublin, Ireland: Neil Seery once again impressed in his home town as he submitted Jon Delos Reyes late in the second round.
UFC Fight Night 76 was held on October 24, 2015 at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. The whole event aired on UFC Fight Pass. Neil Seery vs. Jon Delos Reyes took place on the main card.
Seery lands heavy, but Delos Reyes complains about a shot to the back of the head. The referee delivers a warning but I didn’t see much of a problem with it. This is a really fun one through the first minute and a half! Lots of combinations and a really frenetic pace. Delos Reyes tangles up Seery’s feet and scores the takedown, but Seery gets back to the feet with an armbar attempt. Seery is absolutely winning the stand up battle, picking his shots well and landing with accuracy. McGregor can be seen in the background, cheering on his countryman (but not his teammate). Great round for Seery!
MMA Mad scores the first round 10-9 Seery
Seery aggressively pursues a guillotine attempt and finds himself in a bad position when Delos Reyes slips out. He transitions into back control, but Seery shakes him off and things return to the feet. It’s turned into a slugfest, as both guys are throwing like it’s Sanchez vs. Melendez. Delos Reyes goes for the takedown and a huge slam, but Seery locks in the guillotine and finishes it! Amazing finish to an outstanding fight! Great work from both guys.
Seery submits him in two.
Official Result – Neil Seery def. Jon Delos Reyes via guillotine choke (Rd.2, 4:12)
