Dan Ige One-Punch KO’s Gavin Tucker At UFC Vegas 21

We have a very exciting 13-fight card going underway tonight at UFC Vegas 21, as Leon Edwards makes his long awaited return to the octagon opposite No. 13 ranked Belal Muhammad in the five-round main event of the evening.

Edwards hasn’t fought since July of 2019, where he secured a five-round unanimous decision victory over former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. That’s the same amount of time Muhammad has been able to go 3-0 in.

Co-headlining the event came a light-heavyweight clash between top 15 finishers Misha Cirkunov and Ryan Spann. This is a perfect striker versus grappler match up.

Then the feature bout of the evening, which came in the featherweight division between Dan Ige and Gavin Tucker, a very meaningful fight in the 145 lb division.

Ige came into the bout having lost his last contest to Calvin Kattar, but was on a six-fight win streak coming into that affair. Tucker is currently riding a dominant three-fight win streak, and has finally been able to be more active recently.

With them both being Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts, and them both having great striking, with Ige being more of a boxer, and Tucker being more of a Muay Thai striker, we knew we were in for a treat with this one.
