Yes, Pedro Falcao, who took responsibility for the fight at short notice, had a good performance, compared to having just three days to prepare for his UFC debut. Despite this, he has broken the series of five consecutive victories and has 16 triumphs and four setbacks.

The combat unfolded like a ballet of precise blows and well-defined strategies. Pedro Falcao, true to his grappler style, sought to shorten the distance and take the fight to the ground, where he felt more comfortable. Already Victor Hugo, adept at standing up striking, exploited his precision and power in kicks and punches, seeking to keep his opponent at a distance.

In the first round, Pedro Falcao dominated the scene, pressing Victor Hugo against the fence and looking for a fall. Despite the effective strategy, the “Sniper” resisted bravely, demonstrating excellent defense and precise counterattacks that prevented the finish.

In the second round, the rhythm of the fight changed. Victor Hugo, more adapted to the octagon, began to find his space and explore the gaps in the defense of Pedro Falcao. Low kicks and precise counterattacks undermined the grappler's physique, who looked increasingly tired.

The third and decisive round was a show of strength and endurance. Victor Hugo, capitalizing on his opponent's wear and tear, he intensified his striking, connecting round kicks and “flying” kicks that shook Pedro Falcao. The grappler, in turn, sought to reverse the situation with powerful strikes, but fatigue was already preventing him from maintaining the pace.
