UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs Lemos Main Card 

Main Event: Amanda Lemos defeats Marina Rodriguez by TKO (punches) at 0:54 of Round 3

Statement made by Amanda Lemos!

The Brazilian powerhouse secured a third-round stoppage win over streaking contender Marina Rodriguez, picking up her second straight finish to make her case for a championship opportunity.

In the first round, the Brazilians showed each other tremendous respect, neither wanting to wade into dangerous waters too quickly. In the second, a slick trip from Lemos put the fight on the canvas, where she controlled Rodriguez for the remainder of the frame. As the third began, each woman came out more willing to throw, and when Lemos landed her right hand, Rodriguez immediately looked dazed.

Lemos swarmed, unloading a barrage of power shots that backed Rodriguez into the fence, motionless, prompting referee Jason Herzog to step in and stop the fight.

Just a massive victory for Lemos, halting Rodriguez’ run of success and punching her ticket to the Top 5… and perhaps a championship opportunity in 2023. | Official Scorecards 

Co-Main Event: Neil Magny defeats Daniel Rodriguez by submission (D’arce choke) at 3:33 of Round 3

Neil Magny has the most wins in the history of the UFC welterweight division, breaking the tie with former champion Georges St-Pierre with a third-round submission win over Daniel Rodriguez on Saturday.

This was a highly competitive fight from the outset, with neither man willing to give the other an inch. In the first, Magny’s jab, movement, and variety gave the Colorado native an edge, but in the second, Rodriguez clawed back by closing the distance and bullying Magny on the feet. Early in the third, Rodriguez appeared to stung the Top 15 fixture, but Magny recovered quickly and went on the offensive, turning to his wrestling.

Late in the frame, he turned a front headlock position into a D’arce choke, leaving Rodriguez no choice but to tap. With the finish, Magny got himself back into the win column and moved to 20-8 inside the Octagon, cementing his place in the rankings and etching his name in the record books once again. | Official Scorecards 

Shayilan Nuerdanbieke defeats Darrick Minner by TKO (strikes) at 1:07 of Round 1

Shayilan Nuerdanbieke saw Darrick Minner hurt himself with a kick early in their featherweight contest and pounced, pounding out a first-round stoppage win.

Minner threw a body kick and recoiled in pain, seemingly suffering a knee injury. He threw another kick as Nuerdanbieke marched forward and then ate a flying knee along the fence that put him on the canvas. From there, “The Wolverine” unloaded a torrent of unanswered blows, prompting referee Mark Smith to step in and stop the fight.

That’s now three straight victories for Nuerdanbieke, who continues to show improvements and made headway in the talent-rich featherweight division, while Minner suffers a third straight setback. | Official Scorecards 

Tagir Ulanbekov defeats Nate Maness by submission (guillotine choke) at 2:11 of Round 1

Tagir Ulanbekov turned in his most impressive performance to date, choking out Nate Maness in just over two minutes.

The grappler from Dagestan didn’t waste much time looking to wrestle, putting Maness on the deck early in the fight, and when the flyweight debutant looked to clamber to his feet, Ulanbekov latched onto a high-elbow guillotine choke. Try as he might, Maness could not extricate himself from the hold and was forced to tap.

After losing a decision to veteran Tim Elliott last time out, this was about as dominant a return to the win column as you’ll see in the flyweight division. Now 14-2 overall and 3-1 in the UFC, Ulanbekov should return to the rankings and keep moving forward in the division in 2023. | Official Scorecards 

Grant Dawson defeats Mark O. Madsen by submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:05 of Round 3

Grant Dawson collected the biggest win of his career — and on short notice, no less — securing a third-round submission finish of the previously unbeaten Olympian Mark O. Madsen.

After getting sat down by a right hand right out of the chute, the talented grappler out-hustled Madsen on the canvas for the first two rounds. In the third, Dawson came out bashing home low kicks that eventually took Madsen off his feet, and after following him to the canvas, Dawson found a way under the neck, securing the finish.

The 28-year-old Dawson is now 7-0-1 in the UFC and 19-1-1 overall. He’s looked outstanding in back-to-back outings since moving to American Top Team, and continues to move forward in the treacherous lightweight division. | Official Scorecards 

UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs Lemos Prelims

Miranda Maverick defeats Shanna Young by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-26)

Miranda Maverick dominated her bout with Shanna Young on the canvas, collecting a lopsided decision win in the night’s final prelim.

The two ran relatively level on the feet, with Young doing a good job of keeping Maverick at range, but as soon as the flyweight prospect looked to grapple, the difference in abilities was apparent. After putting Young on the canvas late in the opening stanza, Maverick took her down earlier in the second, and had her back on the mat less than a minute into the final round.

Maverick couldn’t find the finish, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying, as she turned what started as a competitive fight into a one-sided beatdown. Now 4-2 in the UFC and 11-4 overall, the 25-year-old continues to show she has the potential to be a contender in this division in the not too distant future. | Official Scorecards 

Mario Bautista defeats Benito Lopez by submission (armbar) at 4:54 of Round 1

Mario Bautista continues to impress.

Just four months and change after collecting a first-round submission win over Brian Kelleher, the MMA Lab representative earned a similar result over the returning Benito Lopez in Saturday’s penultimate preliminary card fight.

This was one-way traffic from the beginning, as Bautista bullied Lopez around the cage, roasting his midsection with body shots in the early standup before slamming him to the canvas and continuing to dominate on the ground. After threatening with a straight armlock from the crucifix position, Bautista adjusted to a reverse triangle choke before extending the arm and getting the tap.

Now on a three-fight winning streak and improving to 5-1 over his last six fights, Bautista is becoming someone to watch in the rugged bantamweight division. | Official Scorecards 

Polyana Viana defeats Jinh Yu Frey by TKO (punches) at 0:47 of Round 1

Polyana Viana must have had an early dinner reservation or something because she hustled through Jinh Yu Frey on Saturday.

A knee up the middle as Frey was coming forward straightened her out and stood her up, and from there, the Brazilian swarmed. A string of heavy punches landed, clean, sending Frey crashing to the canvas, where the follow-up blows woke her back up.

Just an outstanding effort from the 30-year-old Brazilian, who gets back into the win column and back to even inside the Octagon with her fourth first-round finish in as many UFC victories. | Official Scorecards 

Johnny Muñoz defeats Liudvik Sholinian by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

A well-rounded effort earned Johnny Muñoz the second win of his UFC career on Saturday.

In the first, Muñoz got the better of the striking exchanges with TUF 29 alum Liudvik Sholinian, and in the second, he showed more of his grappling and scrambling ability, countering Sholinian’s attempts to take things to the canvas. Things were a little more competitive and close over the final five minutes, but the more technical bantamweight from “Horsetown USA” worked his way to the final bell and collected the unanimous decision win.

Muñoz moves to 2-2 inside the Octagon, bouncing back from his loss earlier this year to Tony Gravely to advance to 12-2 for his career. On the other side, Sholinian has now lost each of his first two UFC assignments, and falls to 9-3-1 overall. | Official Scorecards 

Jake Hadley defeats Carlos Candelario by submission (triangle choke and elbows) at 2:39 of Round 2

Jake Hadley delivered the type of performance most were expecting when he first touched down in the Octagon on Saturday night, submitting Carlos Candelario midway through the second round.

The British prospect dropped his promotional debut earlier in the year, but came out firing in his sophomore outing, getting the better of a pure striking battle in the first round with his fellow Dana White’s Contender Series graduate. In the second, Hadley quickly locked up a triangle choke when Candelario looked to take it to the canvas, attacking with elbows while tightening his squeeze before finally drawing out the tap.

Tamires Vidal collected a walk-off finish in her promotional debut, kicking off Saturday’s card with a flying knee to the liver against Ramona Pascual to bring the fight to a close. The duo broke off the fence and started to trade in space when the Brazilian newcomer looked to close the distance, elevating and burying a switch knee into Pascual’s midsection that instantly caused her to double over in pain.
