The Octagon returned to Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 63 event, an eleven-bout fight card headlined by Calvin Kattar vs. Arnold Allen.
Tonight’s men’s featherweight main event did not end in the fashion anyone had hoped for. After an exciting opening four minutes, ‘The Boston Finisher’ appeared to blow out his knee in the late stages of round one. Kattar decided to continue fighting for round two but immediately proceeded to collapse following a low kick from Allen. The fight was immediately waved off by the referee and ‘Almighty’ walked away the victor.
The co-main event of UFC Vegas 63 featured a highly anticipated welterweight contest that saw Max Griffin take on Tim Means. The bout resulted in a hard-fought back and forth affair, with ‘Pain’ taking home a split decision win.
