The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned TODAY (April 20th, 2019) with a card brought to us all the way from Russia. So, we had some early morning and afternoon fights to watch here in the states.

Featuring, a heavyweight bout between former title contender, Alistair ‘The Demolition Man’ Overeem, with a 44-17-0, 1 NC record against Oleksiy ‘The Boa Constrictor’ Oleinik, with a 57-11-1 record, whose last two wins occurred in Round 1, at the UFC on ESPN+ 7 event on ESPN+ from the Yubileyny Sports Plaza in St. Petersburg, Russia. Also of note on the card was a women’s flyweight bout between Valentina Shevchenko and Bloody Elbow’s own contributing author, Roxanne Modafferi (whom we were all rooting for).

The co-main consisted of a lightweight fight, featuring Islam Makhachev, who last fought and won against Bloody Elbow’s own Kajan Johnson, co-host of our Pull No Punches Podcast, up against Arman Tsarukyan, who was coming off a 14-win streak. We had a bout between Devin Clark and Ivan Shtryrkov scheduled as the main event opener, but due to a last minute illness the bout was cancelled, moving Movsar Evloev vs Seung Woo Choi up from the feature Prelims bout to the main event opener.
