Marina Rodriguez looked tremendous in her five-round clash with Mackenzie Dern earlier today (Sat., Oct. 9, 2021) at UFC Vegas 39 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, winning via unanimous decision (highlights HERE).

The main event certainly delivered, but so did a slew of other fights on the ESPN+ main card and “Prelims.” Check them out below and let us know which performance stood out the most:

  • Mariya Agapova returned to the women’s flyweight win column with a third-round submission over Sabina Mazo (see it HERE)
  • Undefeated heavyweight contender Alexandr Romanov kept things moving with a second-round TKO victory over Jared Vanderaa
  • Women’s strawweight prospect Lupita Godinez made good on her second Octagon appearance with an impressive armbar win over Silvana Gomez Juarez (watch HERE)
  • Steve Garcia sparked the “Prelims” undercard with a bloody TKO stoppage over Charlie Ontiveros in a wild lightweight affair
