Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal wins UFC 272 Fight of the Night, Kevin Holland and Maryna Moroz win performance awards
The Covington-Masvidal fight Such an honor is certainly questionable and controversial. While the two had a heated rivalry, the fight itself was very one-sided. While Masvidal had his strongest shots in the second and fourth rounds, Covington wore Masvidal down in the fight primarily with wrestling and submission attempts as he drove to an easy decision victory.
Holland faced Alex Oliveira earlier in the pay-per-view portion of the event. Holland tried to pressure Oliveira, but “Cowboy” fought back, even nearly securing Holland in a stranglehold in front of the horn to signal the end of the first lap. But Holland rocked, dropping Oliveira early in round two for a TKO win.
Moroz meanwhile prevailed with Mariya Agapova before securing an arm-triangle choke in the second round of their bout in the televised ESPN heats. After their victory, Moroz delivered an impassioned speech, emotional due to the nature of their rivalry as well as the recent attacks on Ukraine, Moroz’s homeland.
