A couple of big knockouts highlighted the main card of UFC Vegas 21. Dan Ige and Ryan Spann would end up being the big winners of the night.
Take a look below at the full highlights!
Ryan Spann def. Misha Cirkunov via TKO (1:11, R1)
It was an easy night in the octagon for Ryan Spann, who knocked out Misha Cirkunov in the first round. While Cirkunov landed clean shots to the face, Spann would hit some of his own. He would then land a shot that would put Cirkunov down. A shot to the side of the head later, and the referee had no choice but to call it off.
Dan Ige def. Gavin Tucker via KO (0:22, R1)
Dan Ige wanted to prove that he deserved a fight bonus before he became a new dad, as he landed a clean shot just a few seconds into the fight. After the fight, Ige called out The Korean Zombie.
Davey Grant def. Jonathan Martinez via KO (3:03, R2)
Davey Grant was able to use his power to secure a huge win against Jonathan Martinez. Martinez had the advantage in the first, landing shots that put Grant down. The latter, however, controlled the pace of the second round, hitting several hard shots. Grant would then land a combination, the last one hitting the face of Martinez. Just like that, Martinez was down and out, and Grant earned his third win in a row.
Matheus Nicolau def. Manel Kape via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)
In a back and forth flyweight affair, Matheus Nicolau was able to secure a win against Manel Kape. Nicolau started off the first round in a big way, landing takedowns and single-leg kicks. Kape, however, would gain momentum in the second, hitting crisp shots and letting his hands go. Both would end up impressing in the third, but it was Nicolau who ended up getting his hands raised.
Darren Stewart and Eryk Anders fought to a no-contest via illegal knee (4:37, R1)
In a repeat of last week's Aljamain Sterling-Petr Yan fiasco, Darren Stewart and Eryk Anders fought to a no-contest. Stewart was hitting clean shots throughout the first and at one point looked like he was going to win. Anders, however, hit him with a knee by the cage. After consulting with UFC doctors, Stewart could not continue, resulting in no winner being announced.
