Krylov (30-9 MMA) had entered tonight’s bout with hopes of earning his third victory in a row. ‘The Miner’ was coming off back-to-back victories over former division title challengers Volkan Oezdemir and Alexander Gustaffson in his previous efforts, the latter of which was a TKO finish (see that here).

Meanwhile, Ryan Spann had also entered tonight’s contest sporting a two-fight winning streak. ‘Superman’ was most previously seen in action at UFC 281 this past November, where he scored a spectacular first-round knockout victory over Dominick Reyes (see that here).

Tonight’s ‘Krylov vs. Spann’ bout resulted in a wild fight for as long as it lasted. Both men landed big shots early and then proceeded to engage in some entertaining scrambles / submission attempts on the ground. Eventually, ‘The Miner’ was able to lock-in a triangle choke which forced Superman to tapout.
