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..!
UFC 221 Results and brief Main Card fights breakdown
Hey guys, what’s up?
It’s nishat here with the latest news on UFC 221 although this time I am a bit late…!
Well lets get to the point..!
UFC 221 Results:
Luke Rockhold vs. Yoel Romero – middleweight title fight:
It was a good start by Luke but I kept on thinking why Romero is not getting lose well then it was a matter of time when Romero hit Rockhold with a devastating knockout punch
followed by another brutal punch as Luke was falling down.
It was a great victory for the ‘Soldier of God’.
I wish both fighters the best..!
Curtis Blaydes vs. Mark Hunt heavyweight bout:
In the first couple of rounds it was all Mark Hunt but he ran out of gas tank and then it was fantastic grappling by Curtis. In the later rounds it was Curtis who kept
Mark Hunt down for most of the time. Blaydes threw heavy shots from the back mount and won by decision.
Tai Tuivasa vs. Cyril Asker: Tai Tuivasa won by hitting Cyril with a brutal knockout knee attack, the underdog wins..!!
Jake Matthews vs. Li Jingliang:
Jingliang faced a loss after a significant win streak..Matthews found success with his punches in the first two rounds and gained confidence as the fight went to distance.
All three judges awarded Jake Matthews the victory in terms of Unanimous decision.
Tyson Pedro vs. Saparbek Safarov – UFC light heavyweight :
It was the slickest submission by Tyson Pedro in the very first round…awesome move and submission. It happend when Saparbek was trying to take Pedro down at that time
Pedro had setup the submission on arm and with one awesome move of body it turned into a kimura submission trap.
Co-Mian Event featuring Light heavyweight Championship, Daniel Cormier vs. Volkan, like Cormier said there are levels to the game, he was right! In the first round Cormier almost had the fight finished with neck lock but Volkan was lucky enough to hear the time getting over for the first round.
The second round was not different either, Cormier takes down Volkan and finishes the fight with KO
As I always say, I would love to see Cormier fight against Jon Jones soon!
Main Event featuring the heavyweight bout between Ngannou & Miocic.
>Other than throwing a couple of good punches Ngannou didn’t do much and was out of gas tank in the second round. Miocic was all over him, throwing leg kicks and then utilizing single leg grip to take the giant down. I was not at all expecting the fight to go
in the later rounds but I was lucky engough to witness it. Heavyweight fights specially championship oriented doesn’t last that long often.
Miocic and Ngannou both have earned respect from millions around the world. Miocic proved a point that it’s more about technique and not only about power in punches. I wish both fighters the best. Miocic becomes the best heavyweight fighter of the world to have defended the UFC heavyweight title for the third time
Other Fights from UFC 220 Main Card:
Calvin Kattar defeats Shane Burgos via third-round TKO
Gian Villante defeats Francimar Barroso via split decision
Rob Font defeats Thomas Almeida via second-round KO (2:24) (live blog) This fight was well balanced until Font hit Almeida with awesome series of punches
UFC 220 Miocic vs. Ngannou will be held on January 20th 2018 at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts
Ngannou vs Miocic Heavyweight bout (Main Event)
Let me give you a heads up, Miocic might set a record of defending heavy weight championship for the third consecutive time, if he does, his name will go in the history as the most successful heavy weight to have ever existed (UFC history) Dana mentioned it at the press conference following this statement ‘Ngannou holds the record for the most powerful punch with 96 horse power’ considering these points, I am waiting for the best heavyweight fight ever! Ngannou has destroyed his oppenents crashing them with a knock out punch. His last fight against Overeem says the whole story! Looking forward to the fight
Daniel Cormier vs Oezdemir Light Heavyweight championship (Co Main Event)
Cormier said himself that Oezdemir acheived a lot in a short period of time and that it’s impressive..Cormier gave example of Anthony Johnson destroying everyone when he came in his way and won against him
Jon Jones will be having a hearing in a couple of months and might be able to return to Cage back again!
To be honest, I can’t wait to see Cormier fighting against Jon Jones again!
UFC 219 took place last Saturday night (Dec. 30, 2017) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Below are the results for main fights:
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Edson Barboza
(Co Main Event)
It was hell of a fight, both fighters went to distance but Khabib was the winner. In the first round Edson threw some heavy leg kicks but the grappling king took over Edson and it became a one sided fight later on. Khabib won his 25th fight consecutively. Khabib was all over Edson and didn’t allow him to throw kicks closing distance
If Nurmagomedov wins against Tony Ferguson, he gets a chance to fight Conor McGregor later this summer
Khabib always displays great grappling techniques and is one of the best Lightweight fighters in the world
Can’t wait to see his fight against Tony and Conor
Khabib yells at Dana to give him the Title Shot…keep our fingers crossed!
Cris Cyborg vs Holly Holm
Featherweight Championship (Main Event)
Cris wins on the basis of Unanimous decision as she ends up hitting Holly with more damaging blows
My favorite in this fight was Holly Holm but she didn’t do anything out of the box to win the fight.
Holly should have brought something new to the table to overcome the challenge
Cyborg hardly gave Holly a chance to open up and throw variety of attacks
Wish both fighters the best and hope to see Holly coming back strong in her future fights
UFC 218 was held on December 2, 2017 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan
UFC 218 Results & Brief Breakdown:
Co Main Event-Francis Ngannou vs Alistar Overeem:
It was a brutal first round one punch knock out by Francis & I truly believe that Francis has bright chances of becoming a champion.
Max Holloway vs Jose Aldo 2:
It was a brutal fight with loads of punches exchange but Holloway won the fight in dominant fashion. Holloway proved that he can beat Jose again and that he is still the champion.
I have a lot of respect for both fighters and I am sure that Aldo will make some adjustments and come back as a winner..
Eddie Alvarez vs Justin Gaethje
Eddie is one of my favorite fighters and he truly has a heart of a true fighter and a champion.
Eddie won the fight by clear knee attack, amazing knockout! Love you Eddie, welcome back!

UFC 216 Featuring Ferguson vs Lee will take place at T-Mobile Arena, Paradise, Nevada on October 7th, 2017
Ferguson vs Lee
This is the main event at UFC 216 in the Light Weight Division. This is for the INTERIM LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE and the winner most probably will fight Conor McGregor
Below is a breakdown on physical features and fighting aspects of the two fighters:
Well it looks like Lee will have a slight reach advantage but with the skillset Tony has it will be difficult for Lee. Lee will have to look out for different angles.
May the better fighter win! My prediction is that Tony will win the fight!
Co-Main Event – Demetrious
Johnson vs Ray Borg
Flyweight Title Fight
This is the Co-Main Event of the evening..! It’s always a pleasure watching Mighty Mouse fight. If Demetrious defends his title this Saturday, he will become the first UFC fighter to defend title for the 11th time consecutively! My prediction is that Demetrious will win the fight for sure! Although Ray is a great fighter and if he is able to give Johnson tough time, that will be a good achievement in itself and a learning curve for Ray.
