When the dust settles on 2021, perhaps one of the most unique submissions of the year will belong to Alejandro Perez. In the UFC Fight Night 193 curtain jerker, Perez pulled off an unusual armlock from the scarf hold position to submit long-time MMA veteran Johnny Eduardo and win by second-round submission.
There are violent knockouts and then there are “lift your opponent off their feet with the impact” knockouts. That’s what Douglas Silva de Andrade did to Gaetano Pirrello on Saturday. In the opening round, de Andrade picked up his first victory since November 2019 when he stopped the Belgian fighter 2: 04 into their preliminary card bout.
After a rough start to his UFC tenure in terms of wins and losses, Jamie Mullarkey has really turned things around. He entered UFC Fight Night 193 coming off his first promotional victory over Khama Worthy. Taking on Devonte Smith, Mullarkey not only kept his winning ways alive but his finishing streak as well. After a tough first round, Mullarkey stormed back to unleash hell on Smith and score a second-round TKO with a barrage of strikes.
One of the promotion’s brightest budding prospects, Casey O’Neill kept her undefeated record intact Saturday when she took on her most high-profile test to date, Antonina Shevchenko. Though the fight was competitive, O’Neill increased her dominance as the fight progressed. Midway through Round 2, she picked up a TKO win after she landed dozens of ground-and-pound punches to the head of the UFC flyweight champion’s sister.
