This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Fight Island 1
UFC Fight Island 1 went down on Wednesday night on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Following this past weekend’s record breaking UFC 251, we saw the second of four events on Fight Island during the month of July. On a strange card, only one out of the six prelims went the distance. While all five fights on the main card went to the judges’ decision.
In an entertaining main event, Calvin Kattar impressed again, beating Dan Ige via unanimous decision in the battle of the top ten featherweights. The UFC Fight Island co-main event saw another entertaining battle, with Tim Elliott coming out on top via a razor close unanimous decision against Ryan Benoit.
Elsewhere on the main card, there were solid wins for Jimmie Rivera, Taila Santos and Mounir Lazzez over Cody Stamann, Molly McCann and Abdul Razak Alhassan, respectfully.
