Anthony Pettis vs Jim Miller (Lightweight)

Anthony wins the fight on the basis of points and more damaging attacks. Unanimous Decision in favor of
Anthony pettis. After consecutive losses, it seems as if Anthony is back in the game again!

Daniel Omielanczuk vs Curtis Blaydes (Heaveyweight)

Omielanczuk showed excellent take down defense but center of the Octagon was mostly occupied by
Blaydes. Blaydes was also the more active fighter and landed some heavy punches. Blaydes wins the fight
on the basis of unanimous decision

Alistar Overeem vs Fabricio Werdum (Co-Main Event) Heavyweight Bout:

Fabricio is one of the best jiu jitsu fighters and Alistar’s striking game is excellent. Both fighters
took a slow start and Fabricio landed some good kicks. Overeem kept on playing with patience. Fabricio
drops down the guard in second round and tried to utilize his excellent jiu jitsu skills. Overeem knows
that Fabricio is a nightmare when it comes to ground game, therefore he stands up avoiding any type of
possible submissions from Fabricio. In the second round Overeem throws a good punch kick combination
and later Werdum throws two solid clean punches. First round was close, second round was won by Overeem
but in the last and final round, Fabricio throws an excellent heavy knee and after that Overeem was
ground and took punishment from Fabricio.

Fight was won by Alistar Overeem by majority decision which I personally think was not the right
decision. Fabricio was obviously the better fighter and his attacks were more damaging.

Two awesome fighters with almost the same physical height, although Alistar had 3 inches reach
advantage

Yoel Romero vs Robert Whittaker (The Main Event) Interim Middleweight Championship:

The fight began with both fighters calculating range for attack. Romero clearly won the first two
rounds and injured Whittaker’s left leg. The second and third rounds were won by Whittaker in terms of
damaging attacks. In the fifth round it was clear that Romero was trying to kill the time and avoid
attacks from Whittaker because of stamina loss.

Whittaker became the first UFC fighter from Newzealand by Unanimous decision.
