UFC Las Vegas was a stable occasion. The bantamweight headliner was entertaining, the the heavyweight co-headliner ended rapidly.
The preliminary portion of the cardboard began with Carlston Harris returning to the win column with a unanimous determination towards Jared Gooden. After buying and selling on the ft within the first spherical, ‘Moçambique’ went to the bottom and managed the ‘Nitetrain’ within the second and third rounds. Bruno Silva gave us a highlight-reel end of Tyson Nam. The fight-ending sequence began after the ‘Bulldog’ floored Nam with a entrance kick to the jaw and adopted him to the bottom with punches. Moments after, as Nam tried returning to his ft, Silva obtained a maintain of the rear-naked choke and squeezed till his opponent was asleep. What a efficiency after almost a yr away! Ariane Lipski dominated JJ Aldrich en path to a unanimous determination. The ‘Queen of Violence’ fired on all cylinders, handing over probably the most full performances of her UFC profession.
In our early contender for ‘Battle of the Night time,’ Victor Henry received a cut up determination towards Tony Gravely. This one was a back-and-forth affair that had shining moments (together with a pleasant kneebar try!) from each fighters, but it surely was ‘La Mangosta’ who did sufficient on two of three judges’ scorecards. Josh Fremd handed Sedriques Dumas his first skilled loss with a second-round submission. The ‘Massive Yinz’ harm the ‘Reaper’ earlier than getting him to the bottom and snatching up the guillotine choke. Davey Grant pulled off a ‘Submission of the 12 months’ towards Raphael Assunção! A minute or so away from a possible loss, ‘Harmful’ turned up the strain and surprised Assunção with a spinning again fist. Then, because the Brazilian tried going for a takedown, Grant sat down and tied him up in an inverted triangle! Assunção introduced his retirement after the struggle. Karl Willams was profitable in his UFC debut, mauling Łukasz Brzeski for a unanimous determination.
The primary portion of the cardboard kicked off with a slobber knocker between Vitor Petrino and Anton Turkalj. There have been so many twists on this one, as each fighters had near-fight-ending moments, but it surely was the Brazilian who put a stamp on the struggle with a number of takedowns. Mario Bautista made fast work of Guido Cannetti, getting the ‘Ninja’ down (by suplex!) and securing a rear-naked choke within the very first spherical. Now on a four-fight win streak, Bautista set his sights on both a top-15 opponent or Cody Garbrandt for his subsequent look. Jonathan Martinez survived a couple of rear-naked choke makes an attempt from Mentioned Nurmagomedov to earn a unanimous determination. In his post-fight interview, the ‘Dragon’ known as for a few former UFC champions in Dominick Cruz and Deiveson Figueiredo now that he was ranked. Nikita Krylov prolonged his win streak to 3 with a first-round submission of Ryan Spann. After some grappling exchanges, the ‘Miner’ locked in a triangle choke that pressured ‘Superman’ to faucet. Alexander Volkov ran by way of Alexandr Romanov. ‘Drago’ fended off a takedown from Romanov and labored the physique with some punches and kicks. ‘King Kong’ went for an additional takedown, however Volkov obtained to his again, flattened him out and peppered him with punches till the referee stepped in and stopped the struggle.
Merab Dvalishvili overwhelmed Petr Yan for a unanimous determination. From begin to end, the ‘Machine’ gave ‘No Mercy’ little to no wiggle room to the previous UFC bantamweight champion, who struggled to get something important off all through 5 rounds. In the long run, Dvalishvili swept the judges’ scorecards.
