The UFC 238 tournament ended in Chicago, Illinois. Prosports.kz summarizes the most important events of the last event.
Crusade of Peter Yana
As part of the main card, Russian fighter Peter Yang won an important victory. The past duel was the fifth in the last 12 months for the 26-year-old fighter from Omsk under the auspices of the UFC. The fight against Jimmy Rivera lasted all three rounds and ended with a self-assured victory by Yang through the judges' decision. It is worth noting that Rivera, 29 years old, was beaten down three times in the course of the battle, but lived up to the court ruling. For a fighter from the US, this defeat was the fourth in his career and the third in the last five fights.
With this, Jan has won the ninth win in a row as well as the fifth in the UFC. It is possible that the fighter from Russia in the next fight will receive the lowest weight (62 kg) against the opponents of the first five.
Ferguson – Cerrone
Tony Ferguson and Donald Cerrone, former lightweight champions (70 kg), made a real spectacle. 35-year-old El Kukui returned to Octagon after a long eight-month break. As we had predicted, Ferguson was 100% ready in this fight, which resulted in a wonderful performance. Tony shattered the cowboy in the rack and worked flawlessly against counterattacks. Ferguson successfully used thrusts and did not forget his elbows in the rack. In the second round Tony increased the pace of the fight and showed remarkable progress since his last game. But Cerrone did not change and combined the hits perfectly.
But after the second round, the doctor took off Cowboy for a swollen eye the fighter did not see. So Tony Ferguson won the 12th consecutive victory. We hope that Ferguson will meet with the lightweight champion in the next fight in the person of Habib Nurmagomedov. The latter eventually owed the battle of "El-Cucuy".
In the co-main fight of the evening, the flyweight champion (56 kg) Valentina Shevchenko met the challenger Jessica Ay from the USA. The fight ended in the second round when Shevchenko scored a brutal knockout with a haikik on the head. For the 31-year-old Valentina from Kyrgyzstan, this defense was the first in the UFC.
In the main game of the evening, the lightest champion (56 kg) Henry Sehudo wrote his story in the promotional history and won the championship title with the lowest weight (62 kg). That evening he was confronted by Marlon Moraes from Brazil. On paper, this overtook his opponent in the stand, but Sehudo managed to hold Moraes with tight elbows in the fourth round.
This turned out to be a UFC 238 tournament. The next corporate event will be on June 22, where Renato Moikano will meet the Korean zombie at the UFC Fight Night 154 tournament.
