This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Vegas 22
UFC Vegas 22 went down on Saturday night at the APEX Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, Derek Brunson dominated Kevin Holland for five rounds to win a one-sided unanimous decision. ‘Big Mouth’ lived up to his nickname by talking the whole way through the fight.
In the co-main event, Max Griffin needed less than three minutes to knockout Song Kenan in their welterweight contest. Montserrat ‘Conejo’ Ruiz defeated Cheyanne Buys via unanimous decision, before the two promotion debutants had to be separated after the final bell.
Elsewhere on the UFC Vegas 22 main card, Adrian Yanez looked fantastic against Gustavo Lopez and got the knockout win at the start of the third round, and Tai Tuivasa needed less than one minute to finish Harry Hunsucker.
The lightweight clash between Gregor Gillespie and Brad Riddell was removed from the card on fight day due to COVID protocols, and will be rebooked on a later card.
