Combat sports have seen several upsets of late, with Andy Ruiz Jr’s surprise victory over Anthony Joshua in boxing a prime example. Well, this weekend it was the turn of the UFC, as UFC 241 saw Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic come together to battle it out for the UFC heavyweight title.
The UFC returned at the weekend, with UFC Fight Night 156 taking place, and as you would expect, there were some fantastic matchups. The event, which took place in the Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay, was headlined by Valentina Shevchenko and Liz Carmouche, with the Flyweight strap on the line.
MMA and other combat sports are some of the most difficult to forever cement your name in their halls of fame. People quickly remember a single defeat or a knockout more often than a string of powerful and undefeated showdowns.
Alexander Gustafsson will be making his return to the Octagon and he will be hoping for a change in fortune. The two-time light heavyweight title contender will face Anthony Smith in the UFC main event on Saturday.
