Top Fighting Championship (UFC) staged UFC Vegas 13 previous night (Sat., Nov. 7, 2020) inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, that includes a Mild Heavyweight bout that saw Glover Teixeira submit Thiago Santos in a extremely-entertaining bout (see it again right here). Also in key card action, Andrei Arlovski defeated Tanner Boser to select up his 2nd straight earn (recap), though Khalid Taha and Raoni Barcelos place on a display in a thrilling Bantamweight bout.
Biggest Winner: Glover Teixeira
Teixeira just retains on winning. “Hands of Stone” picked up his fifth straight victory around a quite challenging Santos to put him appropriate at the front of the championship line. Immediately after Israel Adesanya, of training course. The 41-12 months old slugger channeled his internal-Randy Couture, proving that age is nothing but a amount and that he can still hold with the greatest in the entire world. In the combat, Teixeira confirmed true grit, surviving various of Santos’ potent bombs to appear out on best. I really don’t know wherever this vocation resurrection came from, but it is terrific to see the longtime veteran glow on the greatest stage. If for no matter what rationale the Blachowicz vs. Adesanya 205-pound title fight does not appear to fruition, then Teixeira is the man to slide ideal in.
Runner Up: Raoni Barcelos
The Bantamweight division has itself a new contender immediately after Barcelos set on a show last night in “Sin City.” Indeed, throughout his combat against Khalid Taha, Barcelos confirmed terrific, limited placing approach that seemingly noticed just about every thing land. Credit to Taha due to the fact Barcelos hit him with some bombs and he kept coming. His kicking game is good, as nicely. For a instant there, the up-and-coming Bantamweight seemed a great deal like Jose Aldo (the early several years). In the conclusion, he picked up a distinct-lower unanimous choice gain as effectively as a submit-fight reward. Really don’t be much too amazed to see the Brazilian standout obtaining a larger matchup in his upcoming UFC outing.
Biggest Loser: Claudia Gadelha
Gadelha’s quest to get back to a further title struggle was stalled right after having out-worked by Yan Xionan, getting rid of a clear-slice unanimous determination. Coming into the struggle, Gadelha was presently contacting for a title shot prior to the bout, but she just just cannot appear to find the momentum to get there. Given that getting rid of to Joanna Jedrzejczyk in her very first and only title combat back again in 2016, Gadelha has failed to win additional the two straight fights (she arrived close on two situations). But every single time she’s on the cusp of a third straight win, she arrives up brief, just as she did from Xiaonan. Possibly it is time for Gadelha to commence considering about a adjust in weight course.
