UFC 280 Results

UFC 280 Results fan art

The UFC 280 Results are in and one belt has changed hands. The event was headlined by two title fights, with a large anticipation for Petr Yan vs Sean O’Malley. The event was live from Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on October 22, 2022.

Oliveira vs Makhachev had its moments but ultimately it was Makhachev who secured a second round arm triangle, that followed a hard right hand which dropped the former champion. The win was a proud moment for Makhachev’s corner which features MMA legend Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Aljamain Sterling retained the bantamweight title after TJ Dillashaw was having issues with his left shoulder kept popping out of socket. It happened in the first round but between rounds it seemed his corner was able to reposition it into place. After it popped out again in the second round Sterling smelled blood and kept the pressure on his opponent securing a second round TKO victory.

Another huge winner for the night was the decision victory that underdog Sean O’Malley secured when he faced the number one bantamweight contender, and largely favored, Petr Yan. The fight was a grueling war that kept a back and forth pace. In the end, it was O’Malley that did enough to impress the judges in a split decision victory.

Here’s a video of the post fight press conference, courtesy of the UFC. Below that are the remaining UFC 280 Results.

UFC 280 Weigh Ins

UFC 280 Weigh In fan art

The UFC 280 weigh ins have concluded and the fighters are ready for a night of action. Two titles are on the line when these fighters meet on Saturday, October 22, 2022 live from the Etihad Arena on Yas Island.

The main event features Charles Oliveira against rising Russian phenom Islam Makhachev. Charles Oliveira was relieved of the Lightweight Title after missing weight at UFC 274 by just a half of a pound. He went on to submit Justin Gaethje in the very first round. Charles has made many comments that the only reason he is facing Islam Makhachev is due to Islam’s relationship with MMA superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov and that he should have to fight some top ranked talent before this match should’ve been made.

The co-main event will be for the bantamweight title as TJ Dillashaw #2 faces the champion Aljamain Sterling. Sterling is on a seven fight win streak in the division. Dillashaw has won five of his last six matchups with Henry Cejudo breaking up his winning streak.

UFC 279 Weigh Ins Chimaev vs Diaz

UFC 279 Weigh Ins fan art

The UFC 279 Weigh ins Chimaev vs Diaz fighters have hit the scales and the work has been put in. Of the 26 combatants 23 hit the mark and 3 missed, it just happened to be the main draw of the card, Khamzat Chimaev, who missed by eight pounds. Chris Barnett and Hakeem Dawodu also missed their marks and will likely forfeit a percentage of their fight money. The fight goes live from Vegas on Saturday, September 10, 2022 with early prelims kicking off at 5:00PM CDT via the UFC Fight Pass. With the main card being in jeopardy of getting cancelled or changed.

The main event of the card will be the rising superstar in the sport Khamzat Chimaev, currently ranked 3rd in the welterweight division, vs Nate Diaz, season 5 Ultimate Fighter winner and UFC legend.

The fight has drawn a lot of speculation as to why it was made in the first place. Diaz had called out many fighters in the division to satisfy his contract with the UFC but those matches were not made. If Diaz wins the match, then Chimaev will have a long road ahead of him to make another run at the title and Diaz will have satisfied his contract with the UFC who could then lose a title contender.

If Chimaev wins, which seems likely considering the odds, then it does little to rise his rankings. Considering that he is fighting a seasoned veteran in the sport who may be on his way out. However, hard core fans will know that another real trial awaits Chimaev and a good performance here will likely increase his fan base.

The co-main event of the evening will be the Chinese phenom Li ‘Leech’ Jingliang #14 vs Tony Ferguson #11 in the welterweight division. The ‘Leech’ has won five of his last seven bouts with one of those losses coming from headliner Khamzat Chimaev. Ferguson looks to get his record back into the win column having lost his last four fights, although his opponents were the best in the division.
