UFC FIGHT NIGHT: ORTEGA vs RODRIGUEZ aired live in Asia on Sunday, July 17 from the UBS Arena in New York, USA. It was a fantastic event full of underdogs, upsets and highlight moments across every bout.

The main event between top featherweight contenders #2 Brian Ortega and #3 Yair Rodriguez was pure action from the opening bell. In an exchange on the ground, the unfortunate end came early as Ortega dislocated his shoulder while trying to escape a triangle, giving Rodriguez the TKO victory. Rodriguez said the following.

"I think it was pretty tied, he was doing a good job of keeping me on the cage, I was trying to do damage so I could take away his movement. It's unfortunate he dislocated his shoulder. I already told him we can run it back any time."

When women’s strawweights #10 Michelle Waterson-Gomez and #11 Amanda Lemos got warmed up, it was fast and furious fireworks. In jockeying for a takedown position, Lemos was able to get a guillotine, and forced Waterson-Gomez to tap. Lemos said,

"It was the (championship) defeat that motivated me to fight again. I want to stay busy. I love Michelle, we trained together in the past. She's a class act, but we knew our paths would cross at some point, and I came here for the victory."

China's #13 welterweight Li Jingliang finally faced Muslim Salikhov after a decade of anticipation between the two Sanda champions.

With two rounds of testing each other on the feet and on the ground, Li was able to put together several successful combinations to knock out Salikhov at the end of the second round.

Fight of the Night: A fantastic flyweight fight took place between #8 Matt Schnell (representing Korea) and #12 Sumudaerji (representing China) that looked to be over multiple times, but the two warriors kept it going. Sumudaerji knocked down Schnell repeatedly, but Schnell rallied, bloodied Sumu on the ground, and put him out with a triangle choke.

No. 14 ranked featherweight Shane Burgos and Charles Jourdain delivered an entertaining, face-paced fight that swung wildly from one to the other. When it came to the scorecards, Burgos earned the majority decision.

Punahele Soriano got back in the win column with a big win over Dalcha Lungiambula by KO in the beginning of round two.

#12 bantamweight Ricky Simon took away the undefeated record of #14 Jack Shore with a tremendous show of wrestling and a perfect punch that set up a session of ground and pound, and ultimately Shore tapped to an arm triangle in the second round.

Bill Algeo turned the tables on slick grappler Herbert Burns in an exciting featherweight bout, showing surprising superior prowess on the canvas and getting the TKO victory when Burns did not have the strength to continue.
