The Honda Center in Anaheim, California was the setting where UFC 270: Ngannou vs. Gane went down. The night ended with two submissions, three knockouts and six decisions.

FOTN: Moreno vs Figueiredo

POTN: Said Nurmagomedov, Vanessa Demopoulos

We saw some pretty cool finishes on the prelims, and then a couple of descent decisions, plus one fire one. That fuego was Raoni Barcelos vs. Victor Henry, which saw these bantamweights push a flyweight pace on the feet. Ultimately it was the UFC newcomer in Henry who dished out more of the punishment, to cash in as the card-high betting underdog.

Before that, there was some slick striking from welterweight prospect, Jack Della Maddalena, who scored a quick TKO of Pete Rodriguez. Tony Gravely avoided a ton of guillotines from Saimon Oliveira, and landed eleven takedowns en route to a unanimous decision. In what was absolute madness, Matt Frevola landed four knockdowns before putting away Genaro Valdez with ground strikes in a total of three-minutes and fifteen-seconds.

Also on the prelims, Vanessa Demopoulos was dropped with a hefty overhand right from Silvana Gomez Juarez in the opening round, but instantly recovered just to snag an armbar and get the tap. Kicking off the card, Jasmine Jasudavicius won her UFC debut with a unanimous nod over Kay Hansen.
