Tonight’s UFC Vegas 28 event was co-headlined by a heavyweight bout featuring Walt Harris squaring off with Marcin Tybura.
Harris (13-10 MMA) was looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he took to the Octagon this evening. ‘The Big Ticket’ had suffered back-to-back TKO losses to Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov in his most previous efforts.
Meanwhile, Marcin Tybura (22-6 MMA) had entered tonight’s UFC Vegas 28 co-main event sporting a four-fight winning streak. In his most previous appearance this past December, the Polish standout had scored a second round TKO victory over Greg Hardy.
Tonight’s UFC Vegas 28 co-main event proved to be a wild back and forth affair. Walt Harris was able to hurt Marcin Tybura early with punches, but the Pole weathered the storm and took the fight to the ground. From there, Tybura would unleash ground and pound on route to a stoppage win.

Based on the camera angle I don’t think those were illegal blows https://t.co/0MgOlPIgL8

What a performance by Marcin Tybura. Harris literally gave him everything early, Tybura did not care and then got the TKO win. #UFCVegas28

Five in a row for Marcin Tybura.
You'd never believe it if you watched some of his fights prior to the streak.
It has been incredible to watch his improvements and resolve.
