The UFC 276 results are in, the night lived up to the hype. Two titles were both successfully defended. A legend in the sport retired on a loss. The event took place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, July 2, 2022.
On the main card, the fight with Adesanya vs Cannonier for the middleweight title went to the score cards, where Adesanya did enough to win the judges favor.
The co-main event was for the featherweight championship. In this one, Volkanovski met with the always game Holloway for the third time. They’ve had close matches before, but Volkanovski proved to be too much for Holloway again, getting the decision win from the former champion.
Alex Pereira took out Sean Strickland, early on the main card. His first round knockout, as well as his kickboxing history against the Stylebender, setup Pereira to be Adesanya’s next challenge.
Sean O’Malley vs Pedro Munhoz was looking like it was going to be quite the contest. However, after an O’Malley unintentional eye poke, the fight had to be stopped when Munhoz couldn’t recover and the fight was ruled a no contest.
