Schilling Overmatched In UFC Debut

Ambition MMA featherweight Pat Schilling made his UFC debut tonight and suffered his first career defeat, losing to Daniel Pineida by Round 1 submission (rear naked choke). The fight was broadcast on national television as part of UFC on FX 1 Prelims on Fuel TV.

A Brutaal MMA promotion veteran, Schilling was 5-0 in his pro mma career coming into the fight, but the experience of Pineida (16-7) was too much. An early takedown led to Pineida, who is the Legacy Fighting Championship Featherweight and Lightweight champion, gaining mount position then the back of Schilling. This quickly led to Pineida working for the rear naked choke, which ended the fight at 1:37 of the first round.
