Welsh bantamweight Brett Johns suffered the second loss of his career against top-10 ranked Pedro Munhoz at UFC 227 in Los Angeles.
The 25-year-old from Swansea was outpointed 30-26, 29-28, 29-27 on the scorecard by Munhoz, 31.
Johns started the fight positively, landing flush on Munhoz's chin with the Brazilian targeting John's legs.
Munhoz' leg kicks took their toll as Johns was visibly limping. The Welshman was then dropped by a kick to the body.
Johns showed immense bravery to finish the fight but has now suffered two defeats in a row after losing his last bout against Aljamain Sterling in April.
Johns posted a picture of himself on social media receiving treatment after the fight: "Beaten up but I'm ok!
"Thank you to my team, family and the UFC for their help!
This one's a stinger especially after winning the first. Credit where credit is due! Pedro was awesome!
"Cymru am byth!"
