Welsh middleweight John Phillips was beaten in the third round by Kevin Holland at UFC Beijing on Saturday.

The 33-year-old from Swansea was hurt by a heavy body shot from his American opponent in the first and then needed a brief timeout after a low blow.

Phillips knocked Holland down in the second, but in the third was forced to tap out after he was put in a choke hold by Holland at the Cadillac Arena.

The Welshman's record is now 0-2 in UFC and 21-8 in MMA.
