Brutal feed caps from preliminaries
In his retirement battle, 42-year-old Kazuyuki Miyata (16-9) won a cruel, submissive victory over Erson Yamamoto (2-4), who fought for the honor of his uncle, Norifumi "Malysh" Yamamoto, who died earlier this year.
The 22-year-old Yamamoto showed a big heart and determination throughout the whole of the novel, battling with a seemingly unceasing series of attempts at submission. However, in the second round, Miyata managed to secure the hammer and then jump to the top of his opponent, powerfully turning the opponent's hand behind his back and forcing him to knock on a painful fight in the final preliminary night competition.
UFC six-time veteran Johnny Case (24-6-1) defeated a technical knockout over Japanese veteran Yusuke Yachi (20-8), using pinpoint strikes to strike his opponent’s right eye, and forcing the doctors at the ring to stop the competition in the second . round.
This dynamic novel was interesting from the very beginning, and Case defeated Yachi from the very beginning. The right eye was already beginning to close in the first round, but when the straight right side slammed into the rapidly swelling area, blood began to run down Yachi’s face and body, and the doctors decided that the wound was strong enough to stop the fight.
Former UFC scales found mixed results
Japanese veteran Yuki Motoya (23-5) spoiled the debut of the nine-time veteran octagon Justin Scoggins (11-6) after the UFC with a rarely seen feed. After several interesting exchanges on his feet to open a contest, Scoggins decided to take the fight to the floor. Unfortunately, it will be his destruction.
Motoya could work in a tight-fitting triangle, working his back. Skoggins defended well, but Motoya released the fourth figure and went on the attack with scissors, holding his hands up and squeezing the crane with the help of a choke.
At the beginning of the preliminary action, Ulka Sasaki (22-6-2) turned out to be the winner in her first fight, since the end of the nine-fight to run in the UFC, picking up a stubborn victory with a decision on the daring showman Manel Kape (12-4).
While the action was back and forth on his feet, Sasaki was able to control the position on the floor throughout the competition. The Japanese product gave itself the opportunity to end the fight, presenting several possibilities, but Cape was trying to survive until the last bell, although the judges were able to reward themselves with a clear decision.
