Main Takeaways

Dimitriy Sosnovskiy showed his very impressive rear naked choke against Godbeer in the second round. With his impressive confidence and swagger this was an excellent debut for the up and coming octagon star.

 

Craig defeats Ankalaev with one second left, LITTERALY. At 4:59 of round three he gets the submission by triangle choke. It is very rare for a fighter to tap out with one second left in the round let alone the entire fight, this was truly bizarre.

 

Volkov gets the biggest win of his career against Werdum in the fourth round. It was made very clear that Volkov is coming for the title but he may have to face Francis Ngannou first (good luck with that).  It was also shown that Werdum (40 years of age), may be nearing the end of his career.
