Middleweight John Phillips was defeated by South Korea’s Jun Yong Park via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Island 6 in Abu Dhabi.

Park set a UFC record of 286 ground strikes in a one-sided fight.

It was the Welshman’s second successive defeat in the United Arab Emirates, having lost to Sweden’s Khamzat Chimaev in July.

Swansea-based Phillips’ record in UFC is now one win and five losses, his lone victory coming against Alen Amedovski in September 2019.
