Bloody Elbow Fighting Experts, Zane Simon and Dene Fox, are here tonight – Saturday, July 17, 2021, to break UFC VEGAS 31: ‘Islam Mkhachev vs Thiago Moises’ Fight Night Event, aka: ESPN 26. on UFC, which was broadcast from the comfortable confines of the Apex Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. People will have reactions to the hot take, possible next fights, as well as the overall event in the player above or on our Bloody Elbow Presents YouTube Channel and BE presents Podcast Network. (spoilers…)

Former UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway and The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America Featherweight champ, Yair Rodriguez, was all set to cheer as the event headliner. However, Holloway was ruled out of the match due to an injury. The match-up is expected to remain intact and the bout will be rescheduled for future events. So tonight we had the substitute headliner between Islam Makhachev and Thiago Moises. For a fairly short notice bout, it was expected to be a good match-up.

Well, the UFC put on a slew of lightweight bouts tonight! The minus 700 favourite, Makhachev, excelled with Khabib in his corner and became the first to take down Thiago Moises. In his first fight beyond three rounds, he became the sixth fighter in UFC lightweight history to win eight or more consecutive fights, as his record now reaches 20-1. After the fight, Islam tells Felder, “You can run but you can’t hide. I am coming. I’m here.” After which he further asks to compete with RDA. In the post-fight show ESPN+ He also took the opportunity to call out Michael Chandler, who was at the announcers’ table at the event tonight.

A women’s bantamweight bout between former Strikeforce and UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Misha ‘Cupcake’ Tate and Marion ‘The Belizean Bruiser’ Reneau served as the event’s co-main bout. It was Tate’s first fight since UFC 205, where she lost via unanimous decision to former title challenger Raquel Pennington. He announced his retirement at the age of thirty, so his last match was November, 2016.

Tate returned to the Octagon with a vengeance. ‘Cupcake’ was a beast. She put Reneau down (for the first time) with strikes, punches and bloody elbows—after a few calm and composed takedowns, she looked super comfortable on her feet, but was vicious on the mat right up to the 1:53 mark. Third round, earning yourself POTN bonus. Reno didn’t disappoint with her performance either, she was happy with the way it turned out tonight.

Big announcements from both sides of the Octagon after the fight: Tate said she’s checked a lot of things off the bucket list today and tells us, “With all due respect, I’m not just here for a fight. I’m here for a belt. So she’s back to go after the title; But she was not ready to call anyone by name yet. Reneau says that being a longtime Tate fan, she was pleased with the way it turned out; Declaring that this was her last fight, she has retired tonight.

Also on the cards, we got the return of Jeremy ‘Lil’ Heathen’ Stephens after his controversial blow to Drakkar Kloss. UFC Vegas 24 Back in April (which canceled the bout on the day of the incident, because Close suffered a spinal injury as a result of that push at the weight-ins). Stephens was to face Mateusz Gamarot tonight.

In addition, a featherweight match was initially held between Herbert Burns and Billy Quarantillo, but Burns had to be canceled in early June due to a torn ACL, and has since faced Gabriel Benitez, Quarantillo’s rival in the main card opener as was changed.

Notable result: Gumroot eliminated Stephens with a wicked shoulder-shredded Kimura submission at just 1:05 of the first round, which was bound to earn him a POTN bonus. Rodolfo Vieira and Dustin Stolzfus fought three rounds of bloody, ending the bout at 11:54 – when Vieira defeated Stolzfuss with a rear naked choke’; For a minute it looked like they were going to walk away, they were fighting with their hearts out. In another three-round banger, Billy Quarantillo took a ‘W’ through punches from back control at 13:40 in his bout against Gabriel Benitez. Quarantillo looked pretty impressive in his performance tonight. There FOTN.

In the featured prelims, Abubakar Nurmagomedov was scheduled to meet Daniel Rodriguez in a welterweight bout. However, Nurmagomedov was forced to withdraw from the program due to injury. Rodriguez was instead facing promotional newcomer Preston Parsons… as predicted, the bout ended in just 2:47, with Parsons being punched, ending his UFC debut in defeat. had done.

For the preliminary prelims, we had a heavyweight bout between Rodrigo Nascimento and Alan Baudot. which was originally expected to be on UFC Fight Night: Font vs Garbrandt. Although he was rescheduled at the event after Baudot was injured, it was now part of our undercard tonight. Was Baudot fully recovered? It’s worth considering, when you consider that he was eliminated via punch (permanent TKO) by Nascimento at just 1:29 of the second round. POTN Bonus to Nascimento.
