Jack Hermansson  returned to the win column in impressive fashion tonight, by promptly submitting fellow middlweight contender, Kelvin Gastelum.
Gastelum came out pressuring and Hermansson countered with kicks. Hermansson went for a takedown, but Gastelum reversed it beautifully and wound up on top.
After some action on the floor, Hermansson rolled for a heelhook and Gastelum tapped. Wow. What a win for ‘The Joker’.
Hermansson was coming off a stoppage loss to Jared Cannonier in September, which snapped his four fight winning streak.
