UFC Fight Night 113 video highlights: Jack Marshman vs. Ryan Janes

Filed under: News, UFC, Videos

Jack Marshman had to hang on a little bit to get past the gritty Ryan Janes, but walked away with his hand raised.

Marshman (22-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) looked at his best in the first round against Janes (9-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) when he continually popped the Canadian’s head back with jabs and swift combinations. Marshman faded a little in the second, then even more in the third. But by the final five minutes, he had done enough to convince all three judges he had the first two rounds for a trio of 29-28 scores.

The middleweight fight was part of the main card of today’s UFC Fight Night 113 event at SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. It aired on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

UFC Fight Night 113 results: Jack Marshman uses early striking prowess to top Ryan Janes

For three rounds, Jack Marshman plodded forward, trying to get inside Ryan Janes’ reach long enough to land a knockout blow.

While that shot never came, Marshman (22-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) still did enough to outpoint Janes (9-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in a close fight, nabbing a unanimous decision victory with scores of 29-28 across the board.

The middleweight bout was part of the main card of today’s UFC Fight Night 113 event at SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. It aired on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

The established tempo of this fight took shape early on, as Janes looked to stay on the outside, circling away in his straight up stance as Marshman charged in with punching combinations, at times lunging forward to connect on his taller, longer foe.

That was a mostly successful strategy for Marshman early on. Several times his fists found Marshman’s chin as he lifted it high in the air on the retreat. But as Janes began to fire back with short strikes of his own, Marshman eventually began to tire.

By the final round, Janes found some success with his own forward advances, but even under duress Marshman didn’t back down easily, or stay on the defensive for long. By the time the fight went to the scorecards, all three judges had Marshman winning by a slim margin, giving him the fight by identical scores of 29-28.

Marshman’s win is his first since his TKO loss to Thiago Santos in February. Janes has now lost two in a row.

The UFC is back in Scotland for a rare Sunday show this week.

UFC Fight Night 113 takes place Sunday at SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. The card airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

(Click here to open a PDF of the staff picks grid in a separate window.)

In the main event, Iceland’s Gunnar Nelson (16-2-1 MMA, 7-2 UFC) takes on Brazilian Santiago Ponzinibbio (24-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in a welterweight bout. Nelson is just a mild favorite at around -160, but he is a unanimous pick from our 10 MMAjunkie editors, writers and radio hosts.

In the co-main event, Scotland’s own Joanne Calderwood (11-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) meets unbeaten Team Alpha Male product Cynthia Calvillo (5-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in a women’s strawweight fight. Calvillo is more than a 2-1 favorite, but she only has a 6-4 edge in the picks.

Also on the main card, Paul Felder (13-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) takes on Stevie Ray (21-6 MMA, 5-1 UFC) at lightweight. Ray will be fighting in front of his home Scotland crowd and is a 7-3 pick from our staff members. Jack Marshman (21-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) joins Nelson as the other unanimous pick on the card for his middleweight fight against Ryan Janes (9-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

It’s a dead-even 5-5 split between Paul Craig (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Khalil Rountree (5-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in their light heavyweight bout. And despite being the underdog, Justin Willis (4-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has a 9-1 edge in the picks against fellow UFC heavyweight newcomer James Mulheron (11-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

In the MMAjunkie reader consensus picks, Nelson, Calvillo, Felder, Marshman, Craig and Mulheron are the choices.

Check out all the picks above.
