Mix martial arts and combat sports in general can get very exciting and have dull moments. Depending on the type of viewer, the ongoing action either blows the roof off a building or makes people yawn out of boredom– exactly what happened at UFC 274 in Phoenix, Arizona this past weekend.
The main three fights people were excited about included:
Tony Ferguson Vs. Michael Chandler
Rose Namajunas Vs. Carla Esparza
Charles Olivera Vs. Justin Gaethje
After ending in a devastating leg kick knock out, Michael Chandler blew the whole crowd away with his unorthodox kick that was followed by half a dozen standing backflips– which perfectly set up the co-main event.
In devastating fashion, the co-main event delivered one of the most boring fights in UFC history, because of lack of activity from both parties. In the end, Esparza became the new champion while most didn’t even care about the results.
At the end of the card, the battle of the lightweight giants reignited the energy of the arena, making everyone on their toes with incredible action from the get go. After being dropped twice by the American, Olivera bounced back, knocked down his opponent and got the rear naked choke– all in the first round, thus ending the epic paper view night in cold fashion.
