Damian Stasiak    UFC    Featherweight
Stasiak lost to Brian Kelleher via TKO (punches) at 3:39 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday in Poland.

Fantasy Analysis

Stasiak was holding his own in the striking battle for the first five minutes, but Kelleher began to take control thereafter, pummeling the polish fighter with hard shots, including the right hand that led to the finish. To Stasiak's credit, he was still attempting to fight when the match was called, but he could never find a way to hurt his opponent in this fight. Stasiak is a threat on the ground but isn't a great wrestler, and has a striking arsenal that consists of low-impact spinning attacks, which will likely make it tough for him to advance at the highest level. His professional MMA record falls to 10-5 as a result of the loss.
Brian Kelleher    UFC    Bantamweight
Kelleher defeated Damian Stasiak via TKO (punches) at 3:39 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday in Poland.

Fantasy Analysis

Kelleher and Stasiak were going back-and-forth with strikes for most of the fight but it was Kelleher who was landing the harder shots, including the straight right hand in the final frame which led to the first stoppage loss of Stasiak's career. It was hard to know what to make of Kelleher due to the limited time he'd spent in the Octagon over his previous two fights but he showcases solid striking and a wicked guillotine choke, which can be used as a means to finish or to keep him safe while being taken down. He moves to 18-8 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.
Nasrat Haqparast    Other    Lightweight
Haqparast lost to Marcin Held via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday in Poland.

Fantasy Analysis

Haqparast knocked Held down with a two-punch combination in the second round and looked to be on his way to another finish before the Pole reverted back to his grappling to take home the victory. Haqparast came into this fight riding a seven-fight KO/TKO win streak and was more than comfortable throwing hands under the bright lights, which could make him a fighter to watch going forward. He falls to 8-2 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
Marcin Held    UFC    Lightweight
Held defeated Nasrat Haqparast via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday in Poland.

Fantasy Analysis

Haqparast came to fight, dropping Held with a slick two-punch combination in Round 2 but Held regrouped and went to his grappling to secure the victory. The Polish fighter seemed to fall in love with his striking early, which made for an entertaining fight but he did a beautiful job using leglocks to hold top position and bleed away the clock when it mattered. Held had been a tough 0-3 in the UFC coming into this fight but will likely stick around in the organization a bit longer after the impressive victory. His professional MMA record stands at 23-7 as a result of the victory.
Jonathan Wilson    UFC    Middleweight
Wilson lost to Oskar Piechota via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday in Poland.

Fantasy Analysis

Wilson has a powerful straight left hand and a nice kicking game but he is simply too inactive to gain momentum. The 30-year-old did a good job of defending while Piechota had him on the ground but had difficulty finding a way back to his feet, and would have likely been tapped by an armbar if the final bell hadn't sounded. It feels like a fighter with Wilson's skillset should be doing a bit better in the UFC, as he falls to 1-3 in the organization after starching Chris Dempsey in his debut in 2015. While Wilson didn't seem gassed in his drop to middleweight, his lack of activity remains a problem, making it difficult to predict where he will fight next.
Oskar Piechota    Other    Middleweight
Piechota defeated Jonathan Wilson via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday in Poland.

Fantasy Analysis

Piechota dominated Wilson in every aspect of the fight, taking his back in round one and ending the fight with a fully extended armbar that likely would have got the job done if time hadn't run out. The Polish fighter seemed comfortable fighting off of his back foot, allowing Wilson to pull him into hard shots. Piechota looks like an exciting prospect, as he is a competent fighter everywhere, and has a few one-strike knockouts to his name. His professional MMA record improves to 10-0-1 as a result of the victory.
