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.
Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on September 9, 2017 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta. Courtesy Wikipedia
Demetrious vs Ray Borg:
(Replaced by Dos Santos vs Ngannou)
This fight was scheduled as one of the main events. Fight has been canceled.
Now the event features Dos Santos vs Ngannou (heavyweight bout)
My prediction is that Dos Santos will win the fight. The strategy would be to keep distance and attack. May the better fighter win!
If the fight was scheduled Demetrious vs Ray Borg, Demetrious could have won and could have become the first fighter to consecutively defend his title for the 12th time.
Nunes vs. Shevchenko:
This will be one of the best fights. Nunes won the first fight against Shevchenko‘but this time I am pretty sure that Shevchenko is prepared mentally and physically. No doubt Nunes is one of the best fighters & that is the reason why she is the champ. I wish both fighters the best!
Boxing Match Result – Mayweather vs Conor McGregor:
It was one of the best events I have witnessed. 12 rounds fight was scheduled between Conor & Mayweather.
Conor clearly won the first three rounds, from the fourth round on wards it was all Money Mayweather. The fight was won by Floyd Mayweather in dominant manner. Later on Mayweather told that it was the game plan to let Conor land heavy shots in the first three rounds and to take advantage of bad gas tank in the later rounds. This is exactly what Mayweather did. Conor was out of gas in the 6th round on-wards.
Although Money Mayweather won the fight but Conor earned his respect. I respect both fighters and I appreciate the efforts put in by Conor to put on a great show. In fact Conor boxed much much better than most opponents Floyd has fought against.
Floyd Mayweather announced that it was his last fight, we will miss you Floyd and definitely your name will be in hall of fame for sure. Great record 50 wins no losses, WOW!

At last time has come for the biggest event in Combat fighting history, Mayweather vs Conor
I am anxiously waiting for it…finally, fireworks will start at 6 PM PST on 26th of August at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada
Finally the event I was anxiously waiting for is round the corner, that’s right! Mayweather vs Conor..
No doubt this event will break all previous PPV earnings record..
Conor will try to knock out Mayweather in the early rounds & Mayweather will utilize technique and will try to take the fight to later rounds.
12 rounds fight between two best fighters, both specialized in different discipline of Combat fighting.
The most exciting factor about this fight is, Boxer vs MMA fighter.
Conor weighed in 153 lbs and Mayweather weighed in 149.50 lbs (welterweight division fight)
During the weigh-in, Conor was looking very confident and why not, he has proven to be the best fighter with excellent reflexes..
Mayweather has won 49 fights and never got defeated, it’s an amazing professional boxig record.
I have respect for both fighters but my prediction is that Maywather will win. Why? He is undefeated in his professional boxing career and boxing for an MMA fighter is a completely different ball game.
The main key factor for Conor is to play with his opponent’s mind, which he loves doing. Within few hours, we will find out the winner. May the better fighter win!
