This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC DC
UFC Washington went down on Saturday night at the Capital One Arena, in Washington DC. The penultimate UFC Fight Night of the year had a bit of everything. Including only the second Twister submission in UFC history, by Bryce Mitchell on Matt Sayles.
In the UFC main event, Jairzinho Rozenstruik scored an incredible knockout finish of Alistair Overeem, with just four seconds left of the fight, having been losing on all three judges’ scorecards. The knockout resulted in a nasty facial injury to Overeem.
The main card also saw two draws, with both Marina Rodriguez vs Cynthia Calvillo in the co-main event and Cody Stamann vs Song Yadong, declared majority draws.
Ben Rothwell recovered from having a point deduction against him for two accidental low blows on opponent Stefan Struve, by scoring a TKO win with just three seconds left of the second round.
