BLOCKBUSTER CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) International Fight Week returns to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 2, 2022, capped by a stacked card headlined by a blockbuster championship double header. In UFC 276’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, reigning Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, defends his crown against No. 2-ranked contender, Jared Cannonier. In the co-main event, Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, has his sights set on successfully defending his title once again against No. 1-seeded contender, Max Holloway, for the third (and likely final) time.

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

Abdurakhimov seemed to be getting comfortable in the first round as he landed some good counter shots from the outside. That was until Daukaus snuck inside with a crisp left hook that dropped the Russian with about 30 seconds left in the round. Abdurakhimov survived, but Daukaus caught him again in the second with a monstrous right hand. Daukaus swarmed a badly hurt Abdurakhimov and finished the fight with nasty elbows.
