It feels good to add that to my resume. I’m even more happy it went the way that it did. That’ll be one that gets replayed for a long time—highlights last forever. Afterwards, it was a little bit emotional. I don’t want to see someone crawling up off the canvas. That was a little sad, but that’s the game we’re in. Better him than me.

HIGHLIGHTS

Clay Guida vs. Michael Johnson

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Clay Guida def. Michael Johnson via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

I’m never satisfied. Win or lose, I know the things I can do better in the Octagon. There’s always room for improvement. One thing, my wrestling needs to keep getting better. I’ve got to be able to finish those takedowns quicker. My hands felt good. I need more head movement, but we were swinging. Michael Johnson hits hard. We were cracking each other. I definitely took some good things out of it, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement.

HIGHLIGHTS

Manel Kape vs. Alexandre Pantoja

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Alexandre Pantoja def. Manel Kape via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)

Manel is a really good fighter, but he needs to know the UFC is high level. There are more high-level guys here. In the first round, I saw he was really nervous. I know he’s a good guy. He’s going to have very good fights in the UFC, but with me he didn’t have a chance.

HIGHLIGHTS

Beneil Dariush vs. Diego Ferreira

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Beneil Dariush defeated Diego Ferreira via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)

It was a war. I think it was in the second round that he got a good hit on me. As far as having streaks and thinking you deserve something, I learned in life you don’t deserve anything—even in fighting. Max Holloway had 10 wins in a row before he got a title shot. I’m not going to sit here and beg for an opponent. I’m over that. I’m going to sit here and say, ‘Who’s next?’ Everybody’s welcome.

HIGHLIGHTS

Danilo Marques vs. Mike Rodriguez

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Danilo Marques defeated Mike Rodriguez via submission (rear-naked choke), Round 2 – 4:52

Mike Rodriguez is a good striker. I knew that. So I trained to put him on the floor and finish him. I just focused on it working like I trained it. I just kept going and didn’t give up. If I had to put him on the floor three, four or five times in a round, I would do that. I trained to do that.

HIGHLIGHTS

PRELIMINARY CARD (ESPN+, 5 p.m. ET)

Justin Jaynes vs. Devonte Smith

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Devonte Smith defeated Justin Jaynes vis TKO (doctor stoppage), Round 2 – 3:38

Never did it cross my mind that they were going to stop it. I thought we were going to just keep going. Then I was like, ‘Oh, I won. Cool.’ It was a good feeling.

HIGHLIGHTS

Joselyne Edwards vs. Karol Rosa

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Karol Rosa defeated Joselyne Edwards via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

My goal is to get in the rankings, maybe even in the top 10 by the end of the year. So every fight I try to show that I’m good on the ground and in my standup. I’m a Jiu-Jitsu black belt, but I can fight anywhere. It doesn’t matter where the fight goes.

HIGHLIGHTS

Molly McCann vs. Lara Procopio

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Lara Procopio defeated Molly McCann via unanimous decision (29-27, 29-28, 30-27)

Did Molly McCann really retire? 

I’m so happy because I’ve been waiting so long for this victory. I came here to finish Molly, but she is so strong. I couldn’t do that, but I’m happy with the win. I thought that I had won the first two rounds entering the third, but I still wanted to finish the fight. In my first fight I thought the same thing. I thought I won the first two rounds and I lost. So this time I didn’t want to go to the judges.

HIGHLIGHTS

Seungwoo Choi vs. Youssef Zalal

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Seungwoo Choi defeated Youssef Zalal via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)

I fought someone that had ranking in the UFC and I defeated him. That makes me really happy and I’m planning on going up the rankings in 2021.

Martin Day vs. Timur Valiev

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Timur Valiev defeated Martin Day via unanimous decision (30-25, 30-25, 30-26)

I am going to be one of the fighters that fights at any weight class, but I prefer bantamweight. I want to compete there and I want to fight Julio Arce next. He is a tough opponent and he is the guy that makes sense next. I am excited for 2021 and I can’t wait for all the opportunities that I will have this year.

HIGHLIGHTS

Ode Osbourne vs. Jerome Rivera

OFFICIAL RESULTS: Ode Osbourne defeated Jerome Rivera via KO, Round 1 – 0:26

Ode Osbourne flattens Jerome Rivera in just 26 seconds

During our faceoff, I looked in his eyes and saw he was a little bit timid. You can tell a lot about a person by looking in their eyes. I knew I just had to walk him down a bit and be patient. I had to wait for him to do something stupid. That kick, we were so close that he should have never thrown that kick. He wasn’t in kicking range. So I just rolled it, waited for the opportunity and capitalized on it.
