UFC Vegas 68 results are completed. The event went live from the UFC APEX arena in Las Vegas. The fights were originally scheduled in South Korea, but due to some booking issues the changes were made to host it in Las Vegas. The fight still went on for South Korean fans time zone, which made for a late night in the US. A great night of fights and some serious talent coming from South Korea.
In the main event, Derrick Lewis #7 took on #12 ranked Serghei Spivac. It didn’t take long for Spivac to make Lewis look like he didn’t belong in the cage with him. Spivac took down Lewis at will and finally ended up securing the tapout, via arm triangle at 3:05 of the very first round. After the win, Spivac took the opportunity to call out Jon Jones for a heavyweight bout. He’ll likely be a win or two away from that matchup, depending on Jones’ performance at UFC 285.
The win will likely propel Spivac into the top 10 contention and will leave Lewis contemplating whether he has another title run in him or not.
In the co-main event, Devin Clark upset the light heavyweight South Korean fighter, Da Woon Jung. Devin Clark was able to fend off the South Korean’s striking with excellent wrestling. Clark was able to secure takedowns in each round which was enough to carry favor with all three judges scoring it 30-27 for Devin Clark.
The remaining fights were all entertaining. The anticipated return of South Korean fighter Doo-Ho Choi left fans less than satisfied. In a strange turn of events, a point deduction cost Doo-Ho Choi the win after the judges scored the fight a majority drawl. The remaining results are listed below.
