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…

UFC president Dana White is looking forward to setting up a unification fight between Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Interim Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje this coming summer in fight Island.

Nurmagomedov (28-0 MMA, 12-0 UFC) was scheduled to fight Tony Ferguson in UFC 249 main event but things fell out after the Corona Virus outbreak which left the champ stocked in Russia due to travel bans caused by the pandemic, forcing him out of the fight.

Gaethje (22-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) stepped in on short notice to face Ferguson in the main event and eventually executed a one sided fifth round stoppage victory over Ferguson, leaving him bloodied and took home the UFC interim lightweight title.
“I expect (Nurmagomedov vs. Gaethje) to happen this summer,” White said, via ESPN. “I don’t know if it will be the first one, but it will be on ‘Fight Island,’ unless miraculously the world comes back together faster than I think it’s gonna.”
