Danny Silva and Josh Culibao spent three rounds battling tooth-and-nail on Saturday’s prelims, each man having their moments in the closely contested clash.

Silva came out of the chute sharp, stinging the Australian and chasing a guillotine choke, but when he couldn’t finish, Culibao regrouped, finding success of his own when the two were in space over the next round plus. Silva turned to clinching more in the back half of the fight, using those interactions to slow down Culibao, before landing the bigger, heavier shots in the final round.
