In a night filled with anticipation and excitement, UFC Fight Night witnessed both exhilarating triumphs and disappointing setbacks, leaving fans on the edge of their seats.

The welterweight co-main event promised a clash of styles between submission expert Bryan Battle and knockout artist Ange Loosa. However, what was anticipated to be a thrilling encounter came to an abrupt and unsatisfactory conclusion due to unforeseen circumstances.

The showdown between Battle and Loosa took an unexpected turn when a collision of heads resulted in an accidental eye poke, halting the bout prematurely.

Despite Battle's dominant performance and a much-improved game plan, the unfortunate incident occurred just a minute into the second round. With Loosa unable to continue, the match was declared a No Contest, leaving both fighters and fans disappointed by the anticlimactic end to what could have been an enthralling battle.

While the co-main event fell short of expectations, the main event between heavyweights Tai Tuivasa and Marcin Tybura more than made up for it. Airing live in Asia on Sunday, March 17, the bout showcased the raw power and skill of both fighters in a display of sheer determination.

From the opening bell, #9 ranked Tuivasa and #10 ranked Tybura wasted no time in delivering a spectacle for the fans. With a flurry of fists exchanged between the two heavyweights, the intensity of the match reached new heights. However, it was Tybura who demonstrated his strategic prowess midway through the first round, seizing an opportunity to take the fight to the ground.

Once on the mat, Tybura unleashed a relentless assault of ground and pound, culminating in a decisive rear naked choke submission victory over Tuivasa. The victory came in just 4 minutes and 8 seconds, solidifying Tybura's position among the top contenders in the heavyweight division.

Reflecting on his impressive performance, Tybura expressed his satisfaction with his display of skills, stating, "I showed everything we did for this." His relentless determination and unwavering spirit were evident throughout the match as he commended Tuivasa's toughness while asserting his own dominance in the octagon.
