The UFC touches down in Las Vegas, Nevada once again tonight, where ranked middleweight talents Derek Brunson (No. 7) and Kevin Holland (No. 10) headline UFC Vegas 22, March 20, 2021.
Co-headlining the event was expected to be a lightweight bout between Gregor Gillespie and Brad Riddell, but a positive Covid-19 test cancelled that bout earlier today and it was replaced by welterweight talents Song Kenan and Max Griffin.
Kenan is coming off back-to-back unanimous decision victories over Derrick Krantz and John Phillips, while Griffin is coming off his third round TKO victory over Ramiz Brahimaj, where he nearly took Brahimaj’s ear off with a vicious elbow, forcing the referee to stop the acton.
Each of them look to continue with their winning ways tonight.

Official Result: Max Griffin def. Song Kenan via KO (punches) at 2:20 of round one
Both fighters come out swinging hard at the start of the round, and each of them are connecting on a good portion of their punches initially. Griffin throws a couple head kicks that just barely miss, as Kenan is able to glide out of the way.
Griffin catches Kenan with a hard right hand and hurts him badly, before landing a left hook-overhand right to secure the finish.
I became a fan of combat sports when I was 12 years old. I was scrolling through the channels and landed upon versus, where WEC was televised. Urijah Faber fought Jens Pulver for the second time that night. That’s the first fight I saw, and the fight that got me hooked on the sport. Since then, the sport has grown so rapidly, and my goal is to enlighten everyone on what’s going on in the sport today.
