Serkan Yilmaz vs Caol Uno

This is a fight between Serkan Yilmaz and Caol Uno. Both the fighters trained in different fighting styles. Serkan from Taekwondo and Kickboxing in which one trains to kick and punch and counter attacks and escapes or dodging from the same. While Caol Uno comes from the training background which relies heavily on grappling techniques, ground fighting and escape from the same.

The fighting allows perhaps both the techniques. Serkan Yilmaz is seen in a leaning stance which is not seen in his Tae Kwon Do and Kickboxing bouts. This stance, his body leaning forward is from the expectation of a grappling attack, which happens after few seconds. Caol Uno, who has been in the heavy training drills based on grappling and escapes from the same and a wide experience of such bouts, obviously had a upper hand against a great fighter, but who have comparatively none training drill and experience in this form of fighting.

Yet, against a caliber of a fighter like Caol Uno, showed his champion's soul, even though he had to tap out in the end. The fighting under the kick boxing rules might have brought about a different result. Both the champions hand shake and body language after the bout says a lot about the good heart and respect they have for each other.
