Moving up to higher weight didn't turn out to be lucky for Israel Adesanya

Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson (Featherweight Championship)

Co-Main Event was the bout between Amanda Nunes (the Lioness) and former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Megan Anderson, for Featherweight Championship. Amanda is the current two division champion (Women's Bantamweight & Featherweight Champion). No doubt there are levels to the game and the Lioness finished the fight in the first round, making Megan tap with triangle armbar submission. Megan had reach advantage which didn't serve as a recipe to defeat Amanda. The Lioness is the best woman fighter in the history of UFC and she always amazes the world with her excellent striking skills. It looked as if Megan was not ready for a title fight as there was no offense shown by her at all

Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling (Bantamweight Title)

UFC fans around the world were disappointed the way this fight came to an end. Petr was fighting so well and as per the critics and fans, he was in a position to be victorious until he hit Aljaman with illegal knee. The title changed hands because of this knee attack, disqualifying Petr Yan

Petr was fighting so well and he was clearly landing clean punches and kicks. Petr took down Aljamain twice but it's hard to say why he landed illegal knee, losing the bout

Aljamain is the new champion but it was sad for all UFC fans around the world to see the fight ending this way
