Amanda Nunes vs Juliana Pena
UFC 277 took place inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Two title fights headlined the card. Julianna Pena and Amanda Nunes went head to head for the women’s bantamweight championship. In the end, it was Nunes who won by unanimous decision.
The first round started out with both fighters landing a few solid shots. Pena landed a good combination, while Nunes landed a couple of big right hands over the top. Eventually, the two fought back and forth. However, Nunes was able to get in some heavy ground-and-pound. This resulted in a bloody puddle of blood at the end of the round.
After the second round, Pena and Nunes were in close quarters again, and both fighters were taking turns hitting each other. It didn’t take long for Nunes to pull Pena down.
Dustin Poirier vs Charles Oliveira
Dustin Poirier’s title shot against Charles Oliveira didn’t go as planned. While the two landed significant strikes, neither came out on top. Instead, Oliveira got the better of his opponent and successfully retained the UFC lightweight title.
It looked like Poirier had the upper hand in the opening round. He dropped the defending UFC lightweight champion with a punch. Then, he rolled away in desperation.
Poirier fought off a rear naked choke attempt in the second. But Oliveira came back with a series of elbows to the head. Eventually, he wrapped Poirier up in a submission and made it to the end of the round.
In the third round, defending UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira submitted Dustin Poirier with a rear naked choke. He pinned his opponent to the deck in the process.
Donald Cerrone vs Joe Lauzon
Donald Cerrone and Jose Lauzon are two of the most recognizable 155-pound fighters in the UFC. They both started in the WEC before transitioning to the UFC.
Despite their high-level performances, both have struggled to take victories in the Octagon in recent years. Cerrone has not won in five fights, while Lauzon has only won once in the last ten. Their upcoming UFC bout may turn into a tale of two fights.
Donald Cerrone is a black belt in Muay Thai and has a good grappling background. He’s a strong finisher, with a good striking clinch. His kicking game is also above average, with the ability to kick with the power of a kickboxer.
Joe Lauzon, on the other hand, is a lightweight veteran. In his most recent fight, he defeated Jonathan Pearce with a first-round TKO.
Gillian Robertson vs Priscila Cachoeira
Priscila Cachoeira and Gillian Robertson will battle it out in UFC 269 on Saturday. The two ladies will do battle in the TMobile Arena in Las Vegas. In the UFC, the odds are stacked against the underdog. That’s why this bout will be a must-see.
Priscila Cachoeira is no slouch when it comes to the art of the sport. She’s had four career wins, and one loss. When she stepped into the cage, she was coming off a two-fight knockout streak. Although she’s been a contender at her weight class, she’s never actually been a title challenger. It will be interesting to see if she has the stamina to keep up with the competition.
Gillian Robertson, meanwhile, has had an up and down career. Despite being a three-pound overweight, she’s managed to get her name on the UFC scorecard, and she’s set up a showdown with Priscila Cachoeira for UFC 269, which takes place live on ESPN+ PPV in Las Vegas.
Rose Namajunas vs Carla Esparza
Carla Esparza won the UFC strawweight title for the second time on Sunday at UFC 274. She beat Rose Namajunas in a largely uneventful bout.
Ahead of the fight, many fans had mixed feelings about the bout. Some were apprehensive about the striking abilities of the two women, while others expected back-and-forth action.
The first round was a little dull. Both fighters tried to land takedowns, but neither did much. Their striking was slow and clunky, and the crowd grew restless.
The third round was a little better. Esparza was able to apply pressure to Namajunas, and she landed a couple of takedowns. However, she failed to hold Namajunas on the ground.
Round four was a bit more active, with each of the two women throwing punches from distance. They combined for 67 significant strikes.
