Figueroa falls in UFC bout
West Plano Crossfit product Edwin Figueroa is back at .500 in the UFC following a second-round TKO loss to Francisco Rivera on Saturday.
The two competed in the opening bout at "UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar" from the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas.
Figueroa succumbed to Rivera's punching power with 40 seconds to go in the second after stringing together a commanding start that saw the McKinney native out-strike Rivera -- even landing a big left hand that dropped Rivera midway through the first frame.
Fatigue and Rivera's winging punches caught up to Figueroa in the second round though, dropping him to 2-2 in the UFC.
Figueroa is 9-2 overall for his career.
