UFC Vegas 49: Islam Makhachev vs. Bobby Green

The Octagon remains in Nevada for today’s UFC Vegas 49 event, an eleven-bout fight card headlined by Islam Makhachev vs. Bobby Green.

Makhachev (21-1 MMA) last competed at October’s UFC 267 event, where he scored a first round submission victory over Dan Hooker. The Russian standout is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak, which includes three-straight stoppage victories.

Bobby Green (29-12-1 MMA), meanwhile, will be making a quick turnaround after just defeating Nasrat Haqparast two weeks ago at UFC 271. That win marked ‘King’s’ second in a row, as he had previously dismantled Al Iaquinta at UFC 268.

UFC Vegas 49 is co-headlined by a middleweight matchup featuring Misha Cirkunov taking on Wellington Turman.

Misha Cirkunov

Cirkunov (15-7 MMA) made his middleweight debut back in October where he suffered a split decision loss to Krzysztof Jotko. The Canadian has gone just 2-5 over his past seven fights overall.

Meanwhile, Wellington Turman (17-5 MMA) was last seen in the Octagon back in August where he defeated veteran Sam Alvey by split decision. That victory snapped a two-fight losing skid for ‘The Prodigy’, who had previously suffered knockout losses to Bruno Silva and Andrew Sanchez.
