Eddie Wineland dominated the featured prelim for UFC Sacramento on UFC Fight Pass. Wineland defeated Takeya Mizugaki by TKO in the first round.
For Wineland, this is not only his second consecutive win. He has won each of his last two bouts by TKO as he continues to climb the ladder in the UFC bantamweight division.
Since his year-long absence, Wineland has gone undefeated. He’s improved his record to 23-11-1 and is 5-5 in his UFC career. Wineland earned Performance of the Night honors in his last bout on in July and hopes this TKO has earned him another.

Serrano is 3-2 in his MMA career, losing his second straight fight. He began his career with a 3-0 record, with his last two victories occurring in the UFC. But his last two fights, the first coming against Ryan Benoit at UFC 201, has created his first career-losing streak.
