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). Stevenson was placed a 100-1 favourite, heading into the fight and he proved right the bookmarkers by winning all the five rounds (50-44, 50-44, 50-43) before the stoppage, dropping Caraballo (13-2-2, 9 KOs) twice in the first round…

Nate Diaz Dominates Anthony Pettis

Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) defeated former champion Anthony Pettis (22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC)  in grueling back and forth fight at UFC 241 co-main event at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Live on ESPN Pay Per View. 

Diaz drilled Pettis with so much power and accuracy that it was no news he was the winner when the fight went to the scorecards. Credit to Pettis for his heart. 

The fight was scored 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 for Diaz, who fought for the first time since losing a Unanimous Decision to Conor McGregor and credited his long layoff to the the fact that "Everybody Sucked And There Was No One To Fight" .
“The reason I was off is because everybody sucked, and there was nobody to fight,” Diaz said. “With this belt, I want to defend it against … Jorge Masvidal had a good last fight. 
“All respect to the man, but there ain’t no gangsters in this game anymore. There ain’t nobody who’s done it right but me and him. I know my man’s a gangster, but he ain’t no West Coast gangster.”

Diaz made his intent known in the opening round  greeting Pettis with a right hand in the opening round maintaining a high pressure strategy and walked Pettis down throughout the fight.

Diaz scored a takedown and scored more points with a ground and pound, hindering his escape with a perfect back control.

Diaz went in for a takedown early in the second round but his efforts were greeted by a right hand from Pettis, who went on to try a kimora finish but Diaz took top position.

Both fighters went back to the clinch and Diaz was the victor in that, landing elbows in close range that left Pettis fading and trying to escape.
