Tonight, the UFC is hosting a stacked “Fight Night” card in Las Vegas. Bantamweights Petr Yan and Merab Dvalishvili are headlining this event. Also, here are some fights to look out for tonight:
Petr Yan vs Merab Dvalishvili:
Former bantamweight champion Petr Yan is coming off a two-fight losing streak against Sean O’Malley and Aljamain Sterling. Yan’s most recent loss was against Sean O’Malley, which was a close fight that took place in Abu Dhabi last year. Many fans believed that Yan did enough to win the decision against O’Malley, but the decision ultimately ended in O’Malley’s favor. Furthermore, a win over Merab Dvalishvili could make Yan next in line for the bantamweight championship.
On the other hand, Merab Dvalishvili is on an eight-fight winning streak and is rising in the division. His most recent win was against Hall of Famer Jose Aldo. Merab has also defeated opponents such as Marlon Moraes, Cody Stamann, and John Dodson. A win over Petr Yan would take him on a nine-fight winning streak against formidable opponents and would make him next in line for the title.
Alexander Volkov vs Alexandr Romanov
Heavyweights Alexander Volkov and Alexandr Romanov are tomorrow night’s co-main event. Volkov has not fought since June of 2022 but is coming off a first-round finish against Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Also, Romanov has not fought since 2022 and is entering this fight after a close decision against Marcin Tybura. Heavyweight Romanov has won five of his last six fights in amazing fashion.
Both heavyweights are looking to crack the top 7 in the heavyweight division, so a win over one another could bump each one of them up.
