UFC Vegas 24 went down last evening (Sat., April 17, 2021) within UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, which noticed Robert Whittaker defeat Kelvin Gastelum through unanimous choice in the most important function of the evening (see it once again right here). In the co-most important event, Andrei Arlovski acquired back on track with a superior earn about Chase Sherman in Heavyweight action.
Major Winner: Robert Whittaker
Whittaker got 1 step closer to earning a possibility to reclaim his title soon after handling Gastelum for five rounds to safe a unanimous conclusion get and his 3rd straight victory. Because 2014, Whittaker has taken on out some of the best the 185-pound division has to offer you, only coming up quick against present-day champion Israel Adesanya in the previous 7 years. Thanks to his latest operate, his proven monitor history, No.1 ranking and his get more than Gastelum, it could be ample to gain a rematch against “The Final Stylebender,” a lot to the chagrin of Marvin Vettori, who took out Kevin Holland just last 7 days at UFC Vegas 23 to gain his fifth straight earn.
Runner Up: Andrei Arlovski
Arlovski acquired back again on the profitable track soon after scoring a huge earn above Sherman, a streaking Heavyweight who was using a four struggle acquire streak into the combat — all knockouts — and was inching closer to a location in the Best 15. But Arlovski, the grizzled veteran who has been close to the block a few situations, wasn’t about to let “The Vanilla Gorilla” occur up at his price. With the win, “The Pitbull” picks up win amount 20 within the Octagon, tied with former Middleweight winner Michael Bisping for most as a UFC fighter. A person extra get will set Arlovski in his personal club and give him a further notch on his extensive and amazing resume that will one working day land him in the Corridor of Fame. For now, Arlovski is even now chugging together at 42 decades old and has no programs to let up anytime shortly.
Biggest Loser: Abdul Razak Alhassan
Following commencing off his UFC occupation with an extraordinary 4-1 mark and setting up up a status as a fearsome knockout artist many thanks to 10 initial round finishes by means of strikes, Alhassan has now dropped 3 in a row. His hottest defeat arrived at the fingers of Jacob Malkoun by way of unanimous decision, a defeat that uncovered his major weak spot, which is wrestling. When Malkoun took him down, Alhassan seemed like a fish out of drinking water. And which is just what Malkoun did consistently, having “Judo Thunder’s” resources absent from him to get a very clear-cut unanimous choice. Even though he’s enjoyable and potent as it arrives when he’s versus someone willing to stand-and-bang with him, dealing with a fantastic grappler is his downfall. Whether or not the marketing keeps him around right after a three combat skid remains to be witnessed.
