MMAOddsBreaker’s Fight of the Month for January 2017‘s Fight of the Month for January goes to welterweights Li Jingliang and Bobby Nash for their battle at UFC on FOX 23 in Denver on January 28th. Michigan’s Nash made his promotional debut on the heels of an impressive six-fight winning streak when he took on China’s Jingliang. Aside from one temporary lull in the matchup, this fight was pure fireworks, as both 170-pounders connected and hurt each other a number of times following the opening bell, with Nash also nearly finishing the bout with a submission on the mat. Nash and Jingliang both had their moments in this contest. But it was Jingliang’s superior chin that ultimately made the difference, as he was able to outlast Nash and find the counter that put his opponent out of commission and forced the referee to intervene and halt the contest. Jingliang is currently riding a two-fight winning streak inside the Octagon, with both victories coming by way of T/KO. Congratulations to Li Jingliang and Bobby Nash!
