UFC Vegas 69 results are in and Erin Blanchfield moves to the top 5. The event went down at the UFC APEX Arena on Saturday February 18, 2023 and could be seen through ESPN+.
In the main event, #10 Erin Blanchfield submitted #3 Jessica Andrade in an impressive showing and a second round stoppage on one of the best female fighters in the sport. It’s likely this performance will cause an adjustment in our Top 10 Female UFC Fighters article.
The standup was surprising to many, as it seemed that Blanchfield had an answer to Andrade’s powerful striking, by utilizing a lengthy jab and a well timed cross. Once the second round got about halfway in, Blanchfield found success with a takedown and immediately got Adrades back and neck. Moments later, she sunk in a rear-naked choke that had the former champion tapping.
The 23 year old was impressive in her showing and went on to call out the champion, Valentina Shevchenko. She even goes on in the post fight press conference, confirming that she hopes Shevchenko wins at UFC 285, as Erin Blanchfield wants to be the one who takes the belt from Shevchenko.
In the co-main event, Jordan Wright had no success against the game plan setup by Zac Pauga and his camp. Pauga was able to secure the fight against the cage and found success with sharp elbows. The bloodied Jordan Wright didn’t have an answer to being pinned to the cage though Wright offered his own sharp elbows keeping Pauga from completing the takedown.
By the end of the fight, Pauga had decidedly won all three rounds and looked no worse for the wear. Zac Pauga won this by unanimous decision, leaving Wright with his fifth straight loss.
Below are the remaining results for UFC Vegas 69.
