WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson made a successful 130 pound debut against Felix Caraballo, working him down to a sixth round stoppage victory in a non title fight at the MGM Grand Conference Center on Tuesday night.

Stevenson toyed with his opponent, breaking him down with every shot before, eventually ending the fight with a big body shot in the sixth round. The shot sent Caraballo to his knees and his gloves on the canvas and while stuck there because of the pains, the referee Tony Weeks was forced to end the fight at exactly 1:31 of the sixth.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs).

UFC Atlantic City Results : Kevin Lee KOs Edson Barboza In The Fifth

22/4/2018




Kevin Lee got over the disappointment  of missing weight to deliver a performance worth of challenging for the UFC lightweight title and taking his winning streak to 6/7.

Lee (17-3, 9 KOs) missed weight by a pound, which was only achievable after one hour delay after the first weigh in. He had already lost a fight due to weight cut, issues and dehydration, which was his UFC 216 loss to Tony Ferguson and will need to fix his weight cut issues, as a way forward in his MMA career.

Despite the disappointmentd  Lee showed class in the Octagon, dominating Barboza with some good wrestling and striking but was also able to show, he could withstand some goog hits in the third.

The fight was called off by the ring side doctor at 2:15 in the fifth after Barboza received a bad cut.
