UFC FIGHT NIGHT: MAKHACHEV VS GREEN aired live in Asia on Sunday, February 27 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Fans of striking got an eyeful of brilliant, gritty battles from start to finish, heralding some up and comers to watch, and cementing the status of others.

It was another dominant performance from #4 lightweight contender Islam Makhachev who halted the momentum of fan-favorite Bobby Green with a fast first-round TKO. Makhachev got the takedown, worked to mount like his mentor Khabib, and finished with ground and pound. The win made it ten in a row for Makhachev.

"I feel good, thank you, everyone, I'm very happy. I trained very hard for Beneil Dariush, so I hope he recovers soon. I just want a title fight. I am here, always ready, always training hard. Just tell me when and where,” he said.

Continuing the recent run of thrilling middleweight bouts, Wellington Turman jumped on the back of Misha Cirkunov early for a standing rear-naked choke. Cirkunov flipped it around for top control of his own. In the second round, Cirkunov had top position early when suddenly Turman threw up his legs to capture an armbar for a fast tapout.

"It felt great. I used a little too much strength on the rear-naked choke in the first round and gassed a bit. But my coaches did a great job and I got the 'W'. I worked really hard in the gym training with world champion Glover Teixeira. I kept my focus and had a great fight tonight,” Turman said following his win.

The entire main card was a blast, starting off with a superb three-round striking battle between Armen Petrosyan and Gregory Rodrigues that went the way of Petrosyan via the scorecards. Then, #13 lightweight Arman Tsarukyan got a bloody and dominant TKO victory over submission specialist Joel Alvarez

Finally, technical Ji-Yeon Kim and power puncher Priscila Cachoeira delivered a cracking, damaging brawl that went the distance and woke up the whole women's flyweight division. Although the fight was close, Cachoeira's damaging elbows at the very end likely secured the judges' decision over Kim's high output. The firefight won them both awards for Fight of the Night.
