This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Vegas 27
UFC Vegas 27 went down on Saturday night at the APEX Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, Rob Font put on a clinic for five rounds to dominate the former champion Cody Garbrandt in their top five bantamweight matchup, winning 48-47, 50-45, 50-45 on the judges’ scorecards.
In the co-main event, Carla Esparza dominated Yan Xiaonan from start to finish and got the finish in the second round. The former champion’s impressive performance is likely to earn her a title shot against the current strawweight champion Rose Namajunas, who she holds a win over in 2014.
Elsewhere on the UFC Vegas 27 main card, Jared Vanderaa, Norma Dumont, Ricardo Ramos, and Jack Hermansson all impressed and won via decision.
