Here are the full results for the UFC on ESPN+ 16 card taking place tonight at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.
In the main event, Justin Gaethje defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone by TKO in the first round in an impressive performance. Gaethje looked faster than Cowboy on the feet and was constantly touching with the better shots before his TKO win.
In the co-main event, Glover Teixeira’s grappling earned him a hard fought split decision over resiliant NIkita Krylov.
Canadian Tristan Connelly was a huge highlight on the main card as he ignored Michel Pereira’s antics in the first round. He never stopped pressing forward and completely gassed the huge Brazilian out. With 5 days notice and one weight class up, Connelly won the decision for the biggest upset on the card.
Misha Cirkunov was the only other Canadian fighter to win on the card as he defeated Jimmy Crute by submission. Cole Smith, Brad Katona and Kyle Prepolec all fought well but ultimately lost decisions.
