UFC 144 Results: 5 Fights for Vaughn Lee to Take Next

English bantamweight Vaughn Lee picked up the biggest win of his career by submitting respected veteran Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto at 4:29 of the first round.

Considered a legend in Japanese and lighter-weight MMA, Yamamoto has fought a cornucopia of top international talent, but the fight against Lee marks just the first submission loss in his 11-year career.

Lee moves to a 12-7-1 record with a 1-1 UFC record, his UFC debut being a split-decision loss to contender Chris Cariaso.

The upset victory puts Lee in an interesting place in the UFC bantamweight division. An impressive showing is often more important than two conservative decision victories, so Lee now finds himself at a chance to jump up the ladder.
