UFC 266 results: Volkanovski vs. Ortega and Shevchenko vs. Murphy
UFC 266 main card results
Alexander Volkanovski retained the UFC Featherweight Championship by beating Brian Ortega by unanimous decision (49-46, 50-45 and 50-44): Tremendous war we saw in Las Vegas. Volkanovski dominated based on rhythm, but with one hand Ortega was able to change everything. That opened another fight, a guerrilla war, and there he brushed against two lethal submissions. He could not close them and in the general count the champion, who is enshrined at the top of the division, was much better.
Valentina Shevchenko knocked out Lauren Murphy in the fourth round to keep the Flyweight Championship: Shevchenko is several points ahead of his rivals. There is no color. Murphy was annulled from the first second. He softened her and when he found the error, he did not hesitate to attack it and thus managed to finish a new candidate. There are already seven belts.
Robbie Lawler beat Nick Diaz by TKO in the third round: Although Díaz had been retired for more than six years, the fight was very interesting. Nick went from low to high, picking up the pace of the fight and landing good punches. Even so, Lawler was faster and was adding better actions. In the third, with an uppercut, Lawler split Diaz, who did not want to get up and his opponent did not go to massacre him either.
Curtis Blaydes defeated Jairzinho Rozenstruik by unanimous decision (triple 30-27): Jairzinho hits very hard, but must have more variety. Blayes gave him a run by simply knocking him down and dragging him to the floor. When he was up he hurt, but on the canvas he was not able to bother.
Jessica Andrade defeated Cynthia Calvillo by KO in the first round: The Brazilian began to pressure Calvillo from the beginning, who never had the necessary space to be comfortable. He was trying to find gaps and he did it at the end of the round. He cornered Calvillo and beat her to death until the referee, with 3 seconds to go, stopped the fight.
