Janes lost to Jack Marshman via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in Glasgow, Scotland
Early in this fight, Janes did not appear to be on Marshman's level in terms of striking. Marshman walked him down and landed power strikes. However, Janes took the strikes well and almost always answered back. In the second and third round, Janes continually walked forward and landed kicks and straight punches. Marshman's power and activity seemed to decline as the fight went on, but the judges thought he did enough to win.

Fantasy AnalysisJanes came out like a house of fire. He landed some hard shots and scored a takedown. However, once the fight went to the ground, Meerschaert remained calm. He locked on an armbar and forced the submission. Janes fell in the Octagon for the first time after winning his last December.
Fantasy AnalysisOne could argue that Berish landed the harder shots in this fight, but Janes outworked the the 31-year-old throughout, leading to the decision victory. While Janes offers some good, clean striking, he tends to keep his chin high, which could spell trouble when he steps into the cage against a more dynamic opponent. Janes was able to weather the shots on this night, however, allowing him to move to 9-1 in his professional MMA career. He has not suffered a loss since May of 2009.
