Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado are here to breakdown the UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Ige event, with hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event in the player above or on our Bloody Elbow Presents YouTube Channel and BE Presents Podcast Network.

This Wednesday’s, July 15th., UFC on ESPN 12 Fight Night event, broadcast from the brand new facility on the infamous FIGHT ISLAND (Yas Island) off the coast of Abu Dhabi, showcased a solid card featuring a featherweight bout between Calvin ‘The Boston Finisher’ Kattar and Dan ‘Dynamite’ Ige. Our co-main event showcased Tim Elliott vs. Ryan ‘Baby Face’ Benoit.

Also on the card, we had a highly-anticipated bantamweight scrap between Jimmie ‘El Terror’ Rivera and Cody ‘Spartan’ Stamann, which was preceded by a thrilling Fight of the Night brawl between Abdul Razak Alhassan and Mounir Lazzez in the main card opener; rounding things out we were also treated to POTN efforts put forth by both Lerone Murphy, Khamzat Chimaev and Modestas Bukauskas. Overall, the eleven bout card saw six decisions, two KO/TKO’s and three Subs; the undercard was quite impressive…. what a night of fights we have to discuss with you!
