The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is hosting another exciting night of fights over the weekend. With the highly anticipated fight card for UFC 226 now in full swing, the time has come to take a look at the official UFC results.
UFC 226 is taking place within the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. on Saturday, July 7, offering fight fans a series of exciting match ups. Continuing the night’s prelims on FOX Sports 1, lightweights Lando Vannata and Drakkar Klose are now throwing down for the Las Vegas crowd.
The first round will be a tough five minutes for the judges. Vannata and Klose spent much of the round on their feet. The two mixed martial artists entered a series of exchanges, but neither fighter managed to dish out too much significant damage before the sound of the bell.
Both fighters increased the frequency of their strikes in the second round, as Vannata and Klose appeared to grow comfortable with their striking. Vannata caught Klose with a spinning elbow, but received a power shot of his own from the fighter.
This will be another tough round for the judges.
Neither fighter appeared terribly gassed from their ten minutes of war inside the octagon as the final round began. Klose managed to pressure his opponent into the fence, but the referee ultimately split the fighters up due to inactivity.
However, neither fighter was able to get a finish. This one has gone the distance.
