UFC presented Las Vegas Fight Night event, their first event at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, NV, on March 11, 2023.
This was be UFC’s first Fight Night event in Las Vegas outside of Apex Center since the start of the pandemic. Merab Dvalishvili got to headline his first UFC event as he faced Petr Yan. Dvalishvili rode an 8-fight winning streak dating back to 2018. Yan was 1-3 in his last 4 bouts heading into this bout, but 3 of those bouts were title bouts. Was he able to turn his form around?
Nikita Krylov and Ryan Spann were supposed to headline an event two weeks back, but an injury to Krylov canceled that bout just minutes before the main card. They clashed in a catchweight 215 bout at this event. Alexander Romanov had bulked back up to 264 lbs for the heavyweight bout against Alexander Volkov in the co-main event. Did that change come to his aid? Check below for results from UFC Las Vegas Fight Night 221 event.
