UAE Warriors 27 streamed live on UFC Fight Pass on Friday morning (March 25) and was not without its share of drama. And to be honest, I thought Khaled Jashell’s violent, corkscrew knockout victory over Kevin Munjethe was going to be my lone highlight video from the event in Abu Dhabi.
To be fair, how often do you see a fighter get spun 180 degrees?

Then came the double nut-shot in the welterweight affair between Magnus Oneyka Iversen and Matheiu Rakotondrazanany, whose unique last name makes me glad I’m not charged with play-by-play for this UFC Fight Pass event.
Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.#UAEW27 pic.twitter.com/lE32BSyX84— UFC FIGHT PASS (@UFCFightPass) March 25, 2022
That fight ended by way of technical knockout when Rakotondrazanany broke something.
