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.

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…

Polish middleweight Krzysztof Jotko was given a difficult experience by Eryk Anders and had to thwart a series of take down attempts, accumulating points from his striking from distance to earn a unanimous decision after three rounds at UFC on ESPN 8 on Saturday night at the the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, Jacksonville, Florida.

The fight was scored read 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28 for Jotko.

Anders had a lot of power behind his strikes and could have easily taken another route. However , he preferred pressing Jotko to the cage while he constantly searched for a takedown but with all his efforts, he just couldn't take Jotko to the canvas as both jockeyed for position.

Speaking after the fight, Jotko expressed he  wasn't really happy with the way the fight unfolded as his sole plan was to knock out Anders.
“Game plan was knock him out,” Jotko said after his hand was raised. “But he wants to cuddle with me, so I’m sorry.”
