Rimbas received 29-28 points from all three judges.

Jandiroba (17-3, 3-3 UFC) executed a takedown and sat down the one-time Jungle Fight champion with an overhand in the very first round. From there, Rimbas took over. He tore the former Invicta Combat Championship title holder with multiple punches, often with kicks to the legs. Rimbas (11-2, 5-1 UFC) had her Brazilian colleague go blind in Round 3, where she blindfolded her with a blow to the head and continued to finish with subsequent punches. Although an interruption failed to take place, the dice had been thrown.

Tukhugov rebounds, surpasses Ramos

The kick-off of the American Kickboxing Academy Zubaira Tukhugov resumed after a failure in September 2020 against Hakeem Dawodu, as it made a unanimous decision by Ricardo Ramos on a three-round wing. Tukhugov (20-5-1, 5-2-1 UFC) brought all three cards with a score of 29-28.

Ramos (15-4, 6-3 UFC) remained competitive all the time – he dazzled the Russian with a rotating elbow in the first round – but could not concentrate enough important moments to turn the corner. Tukhugov put constant pressure, made a significant cut above the left eye of the Brazilian Alpha men coach, pushed him with a penalty kick and effectively connected to the bench. It was enough to keep Ramos in a deficit in the score sheets.

The 26-year-old Ramos has lost two of his last three matches.

Duraev clears Kopylov’s barrier

Former Berkut two-time Absolute Championship winner and Dana White Contender contender Albert Duraev extended his 10-game winning streak to a unanimous decision over Roman Kopylov in a three-lap middleweight bout. All three judges sided with Duraev (15-3, 1-0 UFC): 30-27, 29-27 and 29-27.

Kopylov (8-2, 0-2 UFC) sat his Russian compatriot with a surgical left hand in the second round and enjoyed a delayed rise in the third. The intervening moments largely belonged to Duraev, who completed Alessio Di Chirico in a short time. He almost finished it in the middle turn, where he hit to remove, climbed to a full base and unleashed the ground and pound around the triangle of the arm and the back-chuck attempts. Kopylov appeared with significant damage to his nose, but overcame the attack and forced his counterpart to go another five minutes. Durayev was forced despite his left eye, which was almost swollen and closed.

The 32-year-old Durayev has not tasted defeat since March 14, 2014.

Zaleski dos Santos handles the newly arrived St. Denis

The representative of the CM system, Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, recovered from the defeat of July 11, 2020 by Muslim Salihov, as he claimed a unilateral unanimous decision for the newcomer to the Octagon, Benoit St. Denis, in an an. Zaleski dos Santos (23-7, 9-3 UFC) swept the cards with a score of 29-26 by all three judges.

St. Dennis (8-1, 0-1 UFC) simply surpassed in terms of firepower. A rather competitive first five minutes gave way to a difficult second round on the stomach bordering on harsh and unusual punishment. Zaleski dos Santos hit and bled the Frenchman with hooks from both hands, blows to the knees from the sphincter and various other weapons. St. Dennis managed to withstand the attack – referee Vyacheslav Kiselev could have intervened in more than one case – but was left with no choice but to retaliate. The rhythm of Zaleski dos Santos slowed down the tension and received a point for an involuntary low hit, but until then, the lead it had created was insurmountable.

Zaleski dos Santos, 34, has nine wins in 11 appearances.

Striker Oleksiejczuk Bury Gamzatov

Former Thunderstrike Fight League champion Michal Oleksiejczuk reduced previously undefeated Shamil Gamzatov in the first round of their lightweight heavyweight bout. In his first mission since November 9, 2019, Gamzatov (14-1, 1-1 UFC) lost 3:31 in the first round.

Oleksiejczuk (16-4, 4-2 UFC) crushed the Professional Fighters League. He went forward with left sides, savage blows to the body and bursts of multiple punches from close range. Oleksiejczuk nailed his wrapped counterpart to the fence, forced him into a defensive shell with a bad uppercut and punched him until the job was done.

It was the eighth finish of the first round of Oleksiejczuk’s career.

Murphy Knee KOs Amirkhani

Manchester United’s Lerone Murphy kept his unbeaten run intact and did so spectacularly, knocking out Makwan Amirkhani with a perfectly timed knee blow in the second round of their featherweight bout. A late replacement for Tristan Connelly, Murphy (11-0-1, 3-0-1 UFC) pulled the curtain 14 seconds into Round 2.

Amirkhani (16-7, 6-5 UFC) dictated the terms of the commitment in the first round, where he closed the one-time Full Contact Contender champion with takedown, pitches and pound and mat returns. Murphy responded at the beginning of the middle turn, as he faced an attempt to remove with a double foot from “Mr. Finland “with a catastrophic knee on the head. An unconscious Amirkhani collapsed in a supine position and ate his next right hand before referee Marc Goddard made it to the scene.

The once promising Amirkhani is now on a three-game losing streak.

Petroski Arm-Triangle defeats Hu

The ultimate season 29 of “The Ultimate Fighter” Andre Petroski defeated Yaozong Hu with a triangle hand-chuck in the third round of their middleweight case. Petroski (7-1, 2-0 UFC) replaced Allen Amendowski for a short time, bringing him to the end of 4:46 in the 3rd round.

In his first appearance since November 24, 2018, Hu (3-3, 0-3 UFC) failed to consolidate his position. Petroski wrapped his arms around him with strong fists, removed him almost at will and slowly put on the Tiger Muay Thai product. Hu withered slowly in the third round, where he suffered many setbacks and absorbed heavy ground and pounds from defender Daniel Gracie. Petroski switched to full position in the seconds that arrived, dropped his elbows and jumped to the triangle of his arm to prompt the tapout.

Petroski will enter his next mission with the power of consecutive victories.

Surging Ulanbekov survives from Nascimento

Rejections and top control led former Fight Nights Global champion Tagir Ulanbekov to a divisive decision for Allan Nascimento in a three-round flyweight pair. All three judges next to the cage scored 29-28: Vito Paolilo and Daryl Ransom for Ulanbekov, Ben Kartlitz for Nashimento.

Ulanbekov (14-1, 2-0 UFC) made his intentions known in the first round, where he performed multiple takedowns and almost finished the Chute Boxe with a guillotine chuck. Nascimento (18-6, 0-1 UFC) responded with a venomous guard who saw him threatening with various submissions, from triangle chucks and arms to kimonos and backs. Nothing stuck. Ulanbekov successfully navigated these efforts, continued to accumulate control time and incorporated a few ground fingers and a pound with short elbows and fists.

The 30-year-old Ulanbekov has won five games in a row.
