Efrain Escudero scores his first win since being cut from the UFC

TUF 8 lightweight winner, Efrain Escudero picked up his first win since being cut from the UFC roster this past weekend, something I’m sure he’ll be hoping catches the eye of Dana White, and the Fertitta Brothers.

The native of Mexico was a part of the main event at Desert Rage VIII in Yuma, Arizona over the weekend, defeating Alfredo Martinez via rear naked choke after just 1:14 of the first round.

Escudero dabbled between wins and losses since winning the reality show, picking up wins over Cole Miller and Dan Lauzon, while losing to Evan Dunham and Charles Oliveira.
