The action delivered throughout UFC Vegas 27’s card last night (Sat., May 22, 2021) live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Rob Font out-classed Cody Garbrandt to a dominant main event win (highlights HERE).

In addition to the bantamweight headliner, a collection of main card and “Prelims” fights produced memorable Octagon carnage. Check them out below and let us know which one stood out the most:

  • Rising flyweight contender David Dvorak pushed his UFC record to 3-0 with a dominant one-armed submission victory over newcomer Juancamilo Ronderos (highlights HERE)
  • Bruno Silva earned another brutal knockout finish when he smashed flyweight prospect Victor Rodriguez in just 60 seconds
  • Heavyweight veteran Ben Rothwell spoiled the Octagon debut of Chris Barnett with a strong second-round guillotine choke (highlights HERE)
  • Former UFC women’s strawweight champion Carla Esparza captured her fifth-straight win with a brutal TKO finish over Chinese contender Yan Xiaonan (highlights HERE)
  • Heavyweights Jared Vanderaa and Justin Tafa collided in a wild main card matchup that saw both men swing for the fences for 15 minutes, with Vanderaa coming out on top
