After submitting Andre Muniz in the third round of UFC Vegas 70, Brendan Allen made a significant statement in the event’s unplanned main event.

The middleweights moved up to the main event from the co-main event after Nikita Krylov withdrew from his fight with Ryan Spann due to stomach poisoning. Allen made the most of his chance to shine in front of an even bigger audience by putting up a powerful performance of striking before bringing Muniz to the ground and finishing him with a rear-naked choke. Muniz is a renowned expert in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

From the opening exchange, the middleweights were hurling heavy leather, with Allen hitting Muniz with a strong punch that appeared to briefly knock the Brazilian off balance before he landed in the middle of the cage. Allen was eventually hit on the chin by Muniz's powerful straight right as they continued to trade punches, but he just walked through it.

Tatiana Suarez made her comeback at UFC Vegas 70 and continued where she left off after having been absent for nearly four years.

Suarez looked as powerful as ever after securing a devastating guillotine choke to finish Montana De La Rosa, who had been sidelined by injuries since 2019. As Suarez caught the choke and refused to let go until De La Rosa either tapped or fell asleep, the fight ended at 2:51 into the second round. You can see the complete results below.
