UFC 266 bonuses: Merab Dvalishvili’s incredible comeback TKO leads $50K winners

Alexander Volkanovski captured another UFC featherweight title defense last night (Sat., Sept. 25, 2021) at UFC 266 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, when he battered Brian Ortega to the tune of a unanimous decision win (highlights HERE)

In addition to the main event madness, a collection of PPV bouts and “Prelims” appetizers delivered memorable action inside of the Octagon. Check them out below and let us know your favorite:

  • Valentina Shevchenko successfully defended her women’s flyweight title with a TKO victory over Lauren Murphy in the co-main event (highlights HERE)
  • Bantamweight contender Merab Dvalishvili scored a second-round TKO stoppage over former title challenger Marlon Moraes in one of the craziest fights of 2021
  • Former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler spoiled the return of Nick Diaz with a third-round TKO win
  • Chris Daukaus kept the train rolling with a second-round TKO stoppage over veteran heavyweight contender Shamil Abdurakhimov, extending his current UFC win streak to 4-0
  • Matthew Semelsberger banked a ridiculous 15-second knockout finish over welterweight prospect Martin Sano Jr. (see it HERE)
  • Lightweight contender Jalin Turner secured his third-straight finish with a submission over previously undefeated striker Uros Medic
