CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to T-Mobile Arena with a pair of thrilling world championship bouts. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 29 coaches collide when Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, defends his title against No. 2-ranked contender, Brian Ortega. UFC 266’s co-main event will see women’s Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko go for her sixth consecutive title defense when she meets No. 3-seeded contender, Lauren Murphy. Last, and certainly not least, Nick Diaz returns against former Welterweight roost ruler, Robbie Lawler, in a five-round banger.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

This was pegged to be one of the more entertaining fights of the night based on the striking of both fighters, but Turner quickly showcased a vast array of attacks with takedowns and ground-and-pound. Once the fight returned to the feet “Tarantula” unloaded heavy offense along the cage which softened Medic up and allowed Turner to find the submission finish.
