UFC FIGHT NIGHT: HOLLOWAY vs. RODRIGUEZ also known as UFC Vegas 42 aired live in Asia on Sunday, November 14 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Max Holloway takes home the main event

Two of the best featherweights in the world, former champion Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez, put on an incredible fight with brilliant striking exchanges and peppered with takedowns and grappling. Endurance, toughness, and talent of the pair were on display through five rounds, but Holloway edged out superiority in the rounds to win out on the scorecards. Holloway said,

"Yair's a dangerous man. If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best, and the best is Blessed. I've got a win over the 155-pound champion, we've got Alex (Volkanovski, UFC featherweight champion), I'm on the shortlist for Conor McGregor... we're ready whenever."

Rogerio de Lima stops Ben Rothwell

Marcos Rogerio de Lima deprived Ben Rothwell of his 40th victory when he launched an attack from the opening bell that resulted in a TKO in just 32 seconds. Rogerio said,

"I knew it would be a tough fight, all respect to Ben, but I've been training hard... I know my speed, I know I can strike, and I did what I came to do."

Opening the main card, China's Song Yadong and Julio Arce showed off good striking exchanges through a fun first round. In the second, Song wobbled Arce with a highlight reel-worthy head kick and his killer instincts got him a TKO victory. Song said,

"Today I was on the hunt. I was looking for an opportunity to knock him out. I don't know if it's possible this year, but I want to fight somebody in the top ten... I feel like it's time for me to step up. I want to be champion one day."

South Korea's surging light heavyweight Jung Da-Un set the tone of the event with a first-round KO. Jung and Kennedy Nzechukwu fought at a measured pace until Jung landed an elbow, smelled blood, and went in for the finish with more elbows. Jung said,

"We prepared multi-level gameplay for this fight... fortunately we won on plan A. It felt good. I'm not too concerned about rankings, I just want to improve myself and fight stronger opponents."
