Octagon newcomer Elise Reed not only suffered a first-round TKO loss to Sijara Eubanks earlier tonight (Sat., July 24, 2021) at UFC Vegas 32 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, but she walked away with a seriously damaged eye (shown above). Reed immediately found herself fighting off her back early into the first round and absorbed a collection of punches from Eubanks in full mount. The result was one of the worst eye injuries of the year thus far. For complete UFC Vegas 32 results and coverage click HERE.
At the moment, the extent of the injury that ended the trilogy between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 is unknown. What is clear, however, is that McGregor was in definite agony as soon as his foot twisted beneath him, as the former champion visibly grimaced in pain and crumbled to the mat.

Teofimo Lopez Jr. became boxing's undisputed lightweight champion last night (Sat., Oct. 17, 2020) live on ESPN from Las Vegas, Nevada, when the 23-year-old Brooklyn native outpointed pound-for-pound great Vasiliy Lomachenko to the tune of a unanimous decision win (highlights HERE). Lopez stood out in the early going and ultimately piled it on for a memorable 12th-round performance. The official judges' scorecards can be seen above. Lopez did enough to win on all three of them, but the 119-109 score by Julie Lederman may have been a little much. For complete ‘Lomachenko vs. Lopez’ results and coverage click here.
Veteran fighter Court McGee didn't just lose to Carlos Condit earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 3, 2020) at UFC Fight Island 4 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside Flash Forum on "Fight Island" in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., he also got his nose punched crooked. Condit's knockdown punch at the end of the first round was the culprit and it left McGee with a sideways nose. Pretty gnarly, even for a battle-tested fighter like McGee.

Reigning UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski narrowly defeated Max Holloway last night (Sat., July 11, 2020) at UFC 251 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Flash Forum in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, by earning a split-decision win in the co-main event. The rematch went down as advertised as both men got their licks. Holloway won the first two round and Volkanovski walked away with the third and fourth. The title fight was up for grabs entering the fifth and the champ did enough to retain his title. Check out the official scorecard above. For complete UFC 251 results and coverage click here.
Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker turned in one of the best lightweight main events you will ever see last night (Sat., June 27, 2020) at UFC on ESPN 12 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, but it was "Diamond" who outlasted Hooker in a clear Fight of the Year candidate (see the highlights HERE). Despite edging out "Hangman" over the final few rounds this headliner did not start out entirely well for Poirier, who took on a ton of damage early. It was quite the battle and one that ultimately went to the judges. Check out the official scorecard above courtesy of @HeidiFang. For complete UFC on ESPN 12 results and coverage click here.
Featherweight veteran Darren Elkins not only dropped his "Prelims" clash with Nate Landwehr earlier tonight (Sat., May 16, 2020) at UFC on ESPN 8 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., but "Damage" sustained serious punishment to his face throughout the three-round decision loss. The biggest blow by Landwehr occurred in the second round when an elbow split Elkins' forehead open like a cantaloupe. Elkins, being the savage he is, never stopped pushing forward and ended the bout with one of the bloodiest faces you may ever see in MMA. Check it out above and let us know if you've seen one worse than this. For complete UFC on ESPN 8 results and coverage click here.
Welterweight veteran Niko Price came to fight earlier tonight (Sat., May 9, 2020) at UFC 249 live on ESPN+ from inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., but ultimately lost to divisional contender Vicente Luque via third-round TKO (highlights HERE). Making matters worse for "Hybrid" is the fact that he suffered serious damage to his right eye. Luque dished out a lot of punishment throughout the earlier rounds, but the final left hook really did Price in. Check out the aftermath above. For complete UFC 249 results and coverage click here.

The two women battled it out for 25 minutes in one of the best fights in recent memory and saw their fate hit the judges' scorecards.
