The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in action yesterday (Saturday 15 January 2021) with UFC Fight Island 7, which offered fighting fans an exciting afternoon of fights at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. UAE. In the main event, Max Holloway gave a phenomenal performance against Calvin Katar, achieving an unanimous lopsided victory (See it again here). In the joint main event, Carlos Condit defeated Matt Brown in another entertaining match.
Biggest Winner: Max Holloway
This is easy because “Blessed” looked better than ever, dominating Katar for 25 minutes to clinch a much-needed win after losing twice in a row. His boxer was absolutely top notch, and it must have been because he was competing for one of the best boxers at 145 pounds. But, “Blessed” was more than up to the task, going toe-to-toe with “The Boston Finisher,” marking him at will while several of his enemies take good shots. In the fifth and final round, Holloway went all the way to the Matrix, flagged Katar with a straight oath, and backed off a four-punch group, all while speaking to John Annick & Co. With the win, Holloway reminded everyone that he was still on top form and not going anywhere soon. He put himself at the top of the short list to face the winner in A title fight was announced recently Between Alexander Volkanovsky and Brian Ortega.
Second place: Li Jingliang
Probably not many gave the “leech” a high rate of beating Santiago Ponzenebio – I am among them – But the Chinese-born star silenced everyone and won the biggest win of his career, putting “Gent Boa” in a knockout state in the first round. Lee has now won four of his last five matches, and that victory in particular should give him a significant rise in the middleweight ladder. All in all, he now has seven knockout wins inside the octagon.
Honorable Mention: Alessio de Chirico
De Chirico went into the registry saying it He was not very impressed With what Joaquin Buckley did before the middleweight junk, not even This knockout is awesome He did a lot for the Italian born fighter. Come on to fight at night, de Chirico bolstered his speech by completely flattening New Mansa with a header before ending his night with some subsequent blows. On top of ending Buckley’s momentum, he also scored an extra goal $ 50,000 in cash bonus after the fight. The win also cut short its streak of defeats in three fights, so it was huge on all fronts.
Biggest Loser: Santiago Ponzenebio
It has been more than two years since Gent Boa set foot inside the octagon, and more has passed since he last tasted defeat. In fact, the last time he was on the losers list was in 2015. Since then, he has had an impressive seven-game winning streak. Despite all the work being done, he was unable to get close to a shot at the title. And when combined with his extended gap, Ponzenebio’s momentum slowed dramatically. Now, the loss would force him to start from scratch, and it would be a tough road to return to the rankings because the 170-pound weight class is so stacked up.
