UFC lightweight Claudio Puelles made a statement at UFC Vegas 52 tonight by earning a quick submission win over veteran Clay Guida.
After Guida landed a takedown, it didn’t take long for the American to become hopelessly ensnared in the jiu-jitsu of Puelles. Guida successfully fought off a triangle and armbar attempt but was forced to tap when the “The Prince of Peru” locked in a lightning-quick kneebar to earn the victory after just three minutes.
It was Puelles’ fifth UFC win in a row and his third via kneebar. With such slick submission skills, the 26-year-old Peruvian looks like he could pose problems for much of the lightweight division.
