Marcos Rogerio de Lima


Nice rebound effort in Vegas
May 8, 2021
Rogerio de Lima defeated Maurice Greene via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 24 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Easy work. In a fight which lasted 15 minutes, Rogerio de Lima was credited with a 166-60 edge in total strikes landed and 14:06 worth of control time, in addition to landing 3-of-4 takedown attempts. In short, there was just 54 seconds in the entire fight in which he wasn't dominating Greene in some form or fashion. A win over "The Crochet Boss" means little for Rogerio de Lima over the long term, but this was a nice bounce-back effort on the heels of his submission loss to Alexander Romanov last November. Rogerio de Lima has somehow alternated wins and losses in his past 10 fights.
