It seems that fight fans looking to catch up on Saturday’s, Dec. 2, UFC Fight Pass Prelims will miss out on a small portion of the night’s featured prelim for the UFC’s streaming service. Angela Magana may be known for her provocative (and sometime partial nudity) but she got more than she bargained for due to an embarrassing UFC wardrobe malfunction.
Fight fans flooded into the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday night for UFC 218. The highly anticipated night of fights featured a series of entertaining match ups. UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway headlined the card in an intense title fight rematch against former champion Jose Aldo. In the co-main event, No. 1 heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem went toe-to-toe with rising MMA knockout artist Francis Ngannou for division dominance.
Holloway went on to earn his second consecutive third round TKO victory over Aldo in the night’s event, stunning the Detroit crowd. Before that, Ngannou shocked the arena with a devastating first round knockout of the former K-1 Grand Prix champion and current top UFC heavyweight contender. All of that in mind, there is a UFC Fight Pass prelim match up that has many fight fans talking.
Before the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) switched things to the pay-per-view main card or the FS1 broadcast preliminary card, the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion had fans tuning in to their streaming service UFC Fight Pass for the first preliminary match ups of the night.
The featured UFC Fight Pass prelim for UFC 218 was a strawweight battle between Angela Magana and Amanda Cooper. Cooper earned a TKO victory over her opponent in the second round, but the finish is not what has many fight fans attention.
During the first round, Cooper had Magana on the canvas near the fence. Magana suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction that forced the fight to be momentarily halted. Magana was allowed to adjust her clothing and the fight continued. However, it would appear that is not the case in the replay of the match up on UFC Fight Pass.
The UFC’s streaming service has since removed 15 seconds from the actual fight, with two minutes left in the first round. The clock suddenly drops to 1:45 in seamless fashion, skipping Magana’s unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. Of course, the 15 seconds of fight footage is not all that was skipped. The clock was stopped and the match halted so the UFC wardrobe malfunction could be corrected, adding minutes to the time removed from the UFC Fight Pass replay of the match up.
