Well as a UFC fan I was not really expecting the fight to go to distance but guess what? both men fought well and it went till the 4th round. Let me briefly tell you what happened, in the first round Fabricio took down Volkov and did some damage. In the second round it seemed as if Volkov has smelled Fabricio getting out of gas tank. In the 3rd round, Volkov took over and hit Fabricio with a couple of good punches. Finally in the 4th round Volkov knocked out Fabricio cleaned.

UFC 223 Venue & Date-Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
UFC 223 Venue & Date:
UFC 223 will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on 7th April, 2018.
It features two title fights and is expected to break the PPV earnings record once again after the Conor Mcgregor fight, let’s see what happens!
I can’t wait to see the best fighters go toe to toe & I am super excited to witness the fights.
The fight between Khabib & Ferguson was scheduled before at UFC 209 but was cancelled because of Khabib being unfit at that time.
Khabib is my favorite fighter because the way he trains is amazingly different from other UFC fighters.
I remember Khabib’s fight with Michael, where he was literally yelling at Dana to give him a shot at the title & why not, Khabib has proved to be one of the best fighters. He always puts on a great show…!
As I mentioned earlier, the way khabib trains is different as he fights with a real bear and is always trying to work on his stamina, training at higher altitudes.
Khabib has a 25 Fight win streak and is so explosive with his take down and grappling game. On the other hand Ferguson is a champ for a reason and can attack from different angles using elbows, knees, punches & kicks. Winner of this fight is most likely to fight Conor McGregor in future but the status is not clear as Dana White said that Conor might come back and fight & that it’s not fair with the other fighters to keep waiting for Conor to come back and fight. The Belt should be defended in a given time period but I guess, if you have earned the amount of money which Conor did, most probably, you will be busy exploring other big options to earn more and more. I wonder if Conor comes back, will he still be in that shape and mode to fight well as Mixed Martial Arts is all about being in practice and good shape. The game has evolved so much during the past few years that you can’t say anything with certainty, though we can predict up to some extent about who wins and who loses.
Dana White officially said that the fight between Tony Ferguson & Khabib Nurmagomedov would be for official lightweight championship belt & not for the interim title but I wish both fighters the best in gaining weight for the fight.
The Co-Main event will feature a rematch between current champion Rose Namajunas and Joanna for the UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship. I remember Rose knocking out Joanna in the first round and I said wow! I can’t wait to watch the rematch take place as I am myself a big UFC fan. Let’s see what Joanna has to offer this time. The last time they met was at UFC 217 which took place in November, 2017.

UFC 222 took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada on 3rd March, 2018
It featured the best fight card as follows:
The first fight featured Cat Zingano vs. the Brazilian fighter (Vieira). Coming into the fight Zingano’s UFC record was 9 wins and 2 losses. The Brazilian fighter on the other hand had a 9-Fight Win streak. Zingano threw some knees, inside leg kicks and a fantastic body kick. Vieira used beautiful take down technique using her Jujitsu skills. Vieira looked impressive in the fight. The Brazilian fighter has Brazilian wrestling background. Coming into the fight Vieira ranked 5th and Zingano ranked 6th in the Bantamweight division. Zingano hurts her leg as Vieira blocks the leg kick from Zingano. Zingano gets taken down but manages to stand up and throw some heavy knees. Vieira wins the fight by split decision.
Watch out for the the best fights happening at UFC 223 where Khabib fights Tony Ferguson but the strange thing for me was that Ferguson has a 10 Fight win streak and Khabib has an 8 Fight win streak…it was strange as I have never seen Khabib losing the fight.
Stefan Struve vs. Andrei Arlovski heavyweight bout:
Coming into this fight the two fighters had the following record:
Stefan Struve: 32 wins and 9 losses Andrei Arlovski: 26 wins and 15 losses
Kick by Arlovski shakes Struve and then Arlovski gets a take down at the end of the first round. In the second round Andrei takes down Struve again and later in the second round Andrei complaints about poke in eye from Struve, in fact he yelled at the referee..!
It was a victory for Andrei winning by unanimous decision.
Sean O’Malley vs. Andre Soukhamthath:
The fight was almost over in the first round and if Sean had few seconds more, he could have won it there but Andre was lucky enough to survive. Super kicks thrown by Marley from different angles. In the first round, Malley was all over Soukhamthath and by the end of first round, Andre didn’t know where he is, he was struggling to recover. Almost a win by Sean in the second round but Andre survives again. In the third round, Sean hurts his leg badly and Andre takes advantage of it taking down Malley but eventually technique wins over luck. Sean wins the fight by unanimous decision.
Frankie Edgar vs. Brian Ortega featherweight bout:
Coming into the fight Brian had an unbeaten streak 13-0, 13 wins no losses.Frankie on the other hand had a record of 21 wins and 5 losses.
Before the fight took place everyone was expecting Frankie to win the fight by knockout but Brian shocks the world by an awesome elbow shutting off lights for Edgar in the very first round. Brian wins by knocking Edgar out by throwing an awesome right upper hook. Brian becomes the first person to have knocked out Frankie Edgar.
Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya (Featherweight Title Fight):
It was a completely one sided fight as Yana had nothing much to offer when Cyborg started throwing bombs in the very first round. Cyborg defends the title successfully winning by knockout.
Donald Cerrone vs Yancy Medeiros-UFC Fight Night 126 Results
It was the main event at UFC Fight Night 126 which took place on 18th of Feb, 2018 at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas
The fight was cool and didn’t seem to be one sided but it was a great victory for Cowboy. Cerrone finishes the fight in the first round winning by TKO. Earlier in the round, Yancy was looking active and was trying to be the aggressive one but Cerrone kept his calm and waited for the right time to hit Yancy with an amazing right hand power punch knocking out Yancy. The knockout punch by Cerrone was followed by a series of heavy punches as Yancy fell down.
Donald Cerrone is one of my favorite fighters and it’s always inspiring to see his fights.
I wish both fighters the best!
Both fighters showed tons of respect for each other. Donald had height advantage as he is 6 feet one inch tall and Yancy is 5 feet 10 inches tall but on the other hand Yancy had more reach, measuring 75.5″. With years of combat experience, it was a must win for Donald Cerrone.
Before the fight happened, Cerrone was ranked 11th in welterweight division and Yancy ranked 15th..!
