UFC Fight Night 48 took place on August 23, 2014 in Macau, China. Yuta Sasaki made an incredible debut by choking out Roland Delorme in the first.
Sasaki came out of his corner with a flying knee and that set the tone for his very brief first appearance in the UFC.
Sasaki assaulted Delorme with punches and high kicks, leaving him no room to catch his breath. Then Sasaki turned on his grappling charm with a rapid succession of shoot, single, back take, and drag down where he sunk in a rear naked choke that forced a tap at just over a minute in.
