Strickland (27-5 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since scoring a unanimous decision win over Nassourdine Imavov in a light heavyweight bout back in January. That victory had snapped a two-fight losing skid for the 32-year-old American, as ‘Tarzan’ previously suffered defeats to Alex Pereira and Jared Cannonier respectively.

Meanwhile, Abus Magomedov (25-5 MMA) entered tonight’s headliner sporting a three-fight winning streak, his most recent coming by way of TKO against Dustin Stoltzfus in his Octagon debut in September of last year.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 76 main event resulted in a strong showing for Sean Strickland. The American was able to weather an early storm from his Russian opponent, which included a brutal eye poke, and went on to overwhelm him with strikes. ‘Tarzan’ ultimately finished off a quickly-exhausted Magomedov with ground and pound in the late stages of round two.
