Rashid Magomedov easily defeated Rodrigo Damm in the final bout of the seven-fight preliminary card at the Ultimate Fighter: TUF Brazil 3 at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Saturday night.

Magomedov clearly got the better of Damm in a unanimous decision. Magomedov opened the fight landing kick after kick before he sent Damm to the carpet with 40 seconds left in the opening round with a pulverizing right to the jaw, but refusied to get into a grappling match with Damm on the canvas because of the Brazilians superior grappling skills.The crowd was imploring Damm with "Rodrigo, Rodrigo" chants, but he was passive as the Russian controlled the entire fight from beginning to end, except for maybe a brief flurry of punches with about a minute left in the second round. The big Russian extended his win streak to 10 fights while Damm dropped his first fight in his last three.
