The main event:

The UFC presented “The toughest recorded puncher in the world”, Francis N’Gannou, fighting for the undisputed UFC heavyweight title, his first fight since losing Stipe Miocic at UFC 260. The Frenchman was currently ranked No. 4 in the pound-for-pound men’s overall standings ahead of the Octagon. He faced fellow Frenchman, UFC interim heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane, who currently sits at No. 15 in that ranking.


The co-main event:

Meanwhile, the co-main event featured our second title fight of the night, as UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno put on his crown as the first-ever Mexican-born fighter to win a UFC championship on the line against top challenger, former champ, Deiveson Figueiredo, in their trilogy fight. Moreno was currently ranked No. 10 in the pound-for-pound men’s rankings, while Figueiredo didn’t make that list, he had secured the No. 1 spot in their division, just below the champion.


The rest of the map:

Also on the program was a highly anticipated welterweight match between Michel ‘Demolidor’ Pereira and Andre Fialho. Along with a thrilling bantamweight clash between Cody ‘Spartan’ Stamann and Said Nurmagomedov, not to mention a welterweight piece in our main card opener between Michael Morales and Trevin ‘The Problem’ Giles.

Plus, a promising matchup in our featured preliminary, including bantamweight Raoni Barcelos against Victor ‘La Mangosta’ Henry…that was not to disappoint, as part of our six-fight undercard. What a wild Saturday full of fights we have to share with you!

Overall, this 11-fight card saw five exhilarating first-round finishes, three KO/TKOs, two sweet submissions, and six hard-fought decisions, including our two title fights. To round things off, two fighters were rewarded for putting forward POTN efforts: Said Nurmagomedov and Vanessa Demopoulos; FOTN honors went to Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo.
