Stipe Miocic (C) (+110) vs. Francis Ngannou (-132): Heavyweight Championship
Winner: Francis Ngannou
Winning Method: Francis Ngannou wins by knockout at 4:08 of Round 2.
AND NEWWWWWWWW!! What a shot!! We’ve got a new champion as the second of what must become a trilogy goes to the Cameroonian. It’s the fifth-straight knockout for Ngannou, and now the question becomes can anyone stop him??
Tyron Woodley (+185) vs. Vicente Luque (-240): Welterweight
Winner: Vicente Luque
Winning Method: Vicente Luque wins by submission (D’Arce Choke) at 3:56 of the first round.
This might be the end of Tyron Woodley as a title contender. Luque with a spectacular stoppage.
Sean O’Malley (-335) vs. Thomas Almeida (+250): Bantamweight
Winner: Sean O’Malley
Winning Method: Sean O’Malley wins by TKO at 3:52 of Round 3.
O’Malley had Almeida beat in the first round, but backed off to showboat a bit after what he thought was a knockout. He almost made the same mistake again, but gets the job done here. The favorite moves to 13-1 as an MMA pro.
Gillian Robertson (+134) vs. Miranda Maverick (-167): Women’s Flyweight
Winner: Miranda Maverick
Winning Method: Miranda Maverick wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).
Not sure how this wasn’t a 30-27 sweep, as Maverick controlled the fight all the way. She led on significant strikes 45-24, and 4:40-3:29 on fight control. She also had three of the five takedowns in the bout. Maverick moves to 11-2 as a pro, and will get closer to title shot status in a shallow division soon.
Jamie Mullarkey (+100) vs. Khama Worthy (-130): Lightweight
Winner: Jamie Mullarkey
Winning Method: Jamie Mullarkey wins by TKO at
He got ‘em falling forward!
Alonzo Menifield (-286) vs. Fabio Cherant (+220): Light Heavyweight
Winner: Alonzo Menifield
Winning Method: Alonzo Menifield wins by submission (Von Flue choke) at 1:11 of Round 1.
A really impressive win from the still-rising star of Menifield, who needed the win after his first two career losses came in his last two bouts.
Jared Gooden (+175) vs. Abubakar Nurmagomedov (-225): Welterweight
Winner: Abubakar Nurmagomedov
Winning Method: Abubakar Nurmagomedov wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).
Looking like this cousin out there, Nurmagomedov easily dispatches of Gooden with a 4:18-0:00 fight control advantage, and a 46-36 strikes edge as well. The Russian moves on easily and should have a home in UFC for awhile with or without his family being coerced into possibly returning to the octagon for a super-payday-fight.
Modestas Bukauskas (+140) vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk (-177): Light Heavyweight
Winner: Michal Oleksiejczuk
Winning Method: Michal Oleksiejczuk wins by split decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-29).
It was certainly close, and the announcing crew didn’t agree, but Oleksiejczuk pulls out the victory after 15 tough minutes. While he trailed in significant strikes 54-41, he did pull ahead on fight control (1:09-0:04) and did hit with seven solid leg strikes in a fully standup bout. A tough one for the loser in Bukauskas, who will have an argument here he should have been the winner.
Shane Young (+160) vs. Omar Morales (-215): Featherweight
Winner: Omar Morales
Winning Method: Omar Morales wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
A closer win than the stats by the favored Morales, with both fighters landing 38 significant strikes. But the power behind those favored Morales, and he had two of the three takedowns.
Marc-Andre Barriault (-125) vs. Abu Azaitar (+100): Middleweight
Winner: Marc-Andre Barriault
Winning Method: Marc-Andre Barriault wins by TKO at 4:56 of the third round.
After a dominating third round, Barriault was beating Azaitar so badly the referee had no choice despite hearing the 10-second warning. The winner landed 133 significant strikes to just 67 for his opponent.
