Returning to the octagon for the first time in 17 months, Quebecer Aiemann Zahabi was able to assert himself and signed a victory by unanimous decision of the judges (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) against Ricky Turcios.

“If they can, I’ll ask if I can fight in October or November. I would love to go back to the octagon in October, ”Zahabi told RDS after winning him, who hasn’t fought often in recent years.

Zahabi (9-2-0) stayed away from Turcios (12-3-0) for much of the fight, allowing for a limited number of attacks from both sides. Turcios fought with a lot of energy and particular attacks at times, but never really dangerous. At the end of the 3And round, Turcios attempted a few attacks with his legs, but failed to deliver a smash blow to steal the fight.

“I was a little surprised, but he’s a guy who likes to make jokes, so I was prepared for something crazy in the cage,” Zahabi told Zahabi, adding that he wasn’t perturbed by Turcios’ particular style.

Zahabi then wins a second consecutive match. After two losses in a row, he had found his way to victory against Drako Rodriguez in February 2021.

It is only Zahabi’s second career win by decision. For his part, Turcios lost for the third time in his career.

Fiziev explodes in the 5th round

In the gala final, Rafael Fiziev knocked out Rafael dos Anjos in the 5th round and signed a win for K.-O. in light weights.

Fiziev unleashed a powerful elbow that sent Anjos back to the ground. He rushed to add some punches, forcing the referee to end the fight after just 17 seconds of action in the final round.

“Now we know who is the best ‘Rafael’ in the UFC. Give me someone in the top 5, I’m ready, “FIziev said after the fight.

Fiziev had been knocked down by dos Anjos at the end of the 4th round, but without major damage.

Sign the sixth consecutive victory.

Calvillo-Nunes combat canceled

Nina Nunes was unable to face Cynthia Calvillo.

The flyweight fighter said she had a virus and stomach ache from the weight on Friday afternoon. She then withdrew from the fight, which she hopes she can resume at a later time.

Nunes (10-7) wanted to end a two-game losing streak, one by submission to Mackenzie Dern and another by decision to Tatiana Suarez.

Calvillo (9-4-1) has lost his last three duels.
