Li Jingliang finishes Muslim Salikhov with murderous right hand
Li Jingliang finishes Muslim Salikhov with brutal right hand.
The UFC will host another show tonight in Long Island, New York. A fight night show that has a very big feeling to it as two potential number one contender fights take place on the card.
In the main event former title challenger Brian Ortega takes on Yair Rodriguez in a pivotal clash at featherweight, Rodriguez announced that hes getting the next shot at the title with a win over Ortega. The co-main event will serve a match-up between long time veteran Michelle Waterson-Gomez and surging contender Amanda Lemos. The Brazilian looks to get back on track towards the title with a win over “Karate Hottie”.
Also on the card former champion Miesha Tate seeks to defeat Lauren Murphy in her flyweight debut, if Tate is successful it would seem she would earn a title shot against champ Valentina Shevchenko.
