DELOS REYES FALLS IN UFC JAPAN

Jon Delos Reyes falls in the first round of his bout against 14th-ranked Kyoji Horiguchi at UFC Fight Night Japan Saturday night via TKO.

Description of the fight taken from sherdog.com:

The southpaw Horiguchi bobs in and out with his hands low, looking for a chance to strike. Just before the 30-second mark, he unloads a ferocious left roundhouse kick to the body which instantly has delos Reyes grabbing his ribs. Horiguchi is on him in a heartbeat, pummeling him to the ground and forcing him into survival mode. Delos Reyes ties Horiguchi up and holds half guard while Horiguchi muscles him on top and controls his head. Delos Reyes uses double butterfly guard to elevate Horiguchi and get back to his feet. Delos Reyes gets in a body kick of his own, so Horiguchi returns with another. Delos Reyes explodes at Horiguchi with a flying knee which is mostly blocked. Horiguchi ties delos Reyes up for a moment and then separates. The Guam fighter lands an outside leg kick, but Horiguchi is waiting on it, ready to pounce: the Krazy Bee rep absorbs the leg kick and rips through delos Reyes with a perfectly-placed left hook that sends him reeling across the cage. Horiguchi is on “The Heat” with both guns blazing, landing hooks, then heavy knees which force him to the mat. Delos Reyes tries to hang on to Horiguchi, but the former Shooto standout is a machine. Horiguchi hammers delos Reyes with both hands, forces him to the turtle position and keeps crushing until referee Steve Perceval has mercy on delos Reyes.
