Sean Strickland dominated Uriah Hall on Saturday at the main event of UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas, winning their middleweight fight by unanimous decision.

Strickland extended his winning streak to five with a 50-44, 50-45, 49-46 tally. Strickland landed almost 100 more strikes than Hall and nearly doubled him up in signature strikes, 186-107.

“Five rounds was a little fun,” Strickland said afterward. “You know, the last round is always the funnest. You get so tired, you don’t care about getting hit.”

Strickland improved to 24-3 while Hall fell to 17-10. Hall entered with a four-bout winning streak.

In the women’s strawweight battle, Cheyanne Buys leveled Gloria de Paula with a kick just one minute into the first round for a TKO.

The night’s other winners on the main card included Jared Gooden, Melsik Baghdasaryan and Jason Witt.
