This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Florida
UFC Florida went down on Saturday night, inside an empty VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The UFC’s third card in eight days was another action packed night of fights. One of the big stories going into the night was Walt Harris returning, following the tragic kidnap and murder of his step daughter Aniah Blanchard at the end of 2019. Unfortunately for ‘The Big Ticket’, he was unable to capitalise on his early momentum in the first round of his main event against Alistair Overeem, and was stopped in the second round.
The UFC Florida co-main event ended in one of several controversial decisions on the night. After 15 minutes, it was Claudia Gadelha who got awarded the split decision win. Dan Ige and Song Yadong also earned controversial decision wins over Edson Barboza and Marlon Vera, respectively.
The Performances of the Night went to Miguel Baeza and Cortney Casey, and the Fight of the Night went to Song Yadong vs Marlon Vera.
