Jotko has now won his last two fights in a row meanwhile, Barriault has now lost two in a row.

After his UFC debut loss back in April, where Arman showcased his toughness and resiliency against an experienced Islam Makhachev, the 22 year old took on another veteran in his second light weight fight. Arman came in with a clear game plan – take Olivier to the ground. But the Canadian wrestler wasn’t so easy to go down. Arman kept on going for single leg take downs and finally got one in the first round. Despite getting lit up on the feet, Arman was able to dictate the first round. A solid knee from Olivier in the second round changed the fight’s momentum and shifted the tide in his favour. But the Russian came out strong in the final round and displayed decent striking skills to keep Olivier engaged on the feet. After a failed trip attempt, Olivier lands on the ground with Arman on full guard. From there on it was all Arman who made sure to seal the round with this ground game. With this win Arman has picked up his first hard earned victory and has many more miles to go in the deep division.

Price had some moments int he first round as he threw a short left hand and sent Neal crashing to the ground. But the contender series victor, came out guns blazing in the second round and began swinging punches as he cracked Price with a stiff left hand and ended up on the top and didn’t let Price go so easily. Neal was relentless with his GnP which forced referee Dan Miragliotta to stop the fight at 2:39 into the second round. Neal stays undefeated in the UFC with 4-0 and improves his record to 12-2.

Cris Cyborg is back to the winning side after her first UFC loss against the champion Amanda Nunes. Competing in her last fight of the contract, Cyborg made sure it would be remembered for her dominant performance reminding everyone why she is still a dangerous fighter. Spencer tried to stand and bang with Cyborg but was not worthy enough for her striking skills. Her only glorious moment came when she landed a flying elbow causing a cut over Cyborg’s forehead. Not finding any success in striking, Spencer resorted to take the Brazilian down, but got stuck right at the clinch unable to make any progress. At times, Cyborg looked she needed a breather but then came after Spencer possessed and unleashing everything from her arsenal. Despite eating a lot of shots, Spencer refused to go away and kept showing up. Spencer desperately wanting to change the momentum, pulled guard to bring Cyborg down, but it was a mistake which Cyborg capitalized as she rained down punches on Spencer. With 15 mins of domination, Cyborg took Spencer to the school reminding her of her legendary status.
