UFC Fight Night 187 (or #UFCVegas21, if you prefer) served up a bizarre night of fights that saw two of the three Brits on the card walk away with no contests added to their records as a run of bizarre fight-ending fouls continued at the UFC Apex.

Just one week removed from the controversial events of the UFC 259 bantamweight title fight between Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling, we saw another illegal knee cause an unfortunate stoppage as Eryk Anders slammed a knee into the already-grounded Brit Darren Stewart. “The Dentist” was left unable to continue, and their fight was ruled a no contest.

Then, in the main event, Leon Edwards’ return to action after a 600-day hiatus ended in bizarre fashion as an accidental eye poke left Belal Muhammad in agony and forced another no contest verdict.

On a packed episode of the show, we discuss those two fights, as well as the huge win from the third Brit on the card, Davey Grant, who picked up a big knockout victory over Jonathan Martinez.

We also react to the breaking news of the two-fight deal struck for the undisputed heavyweight boxing championship of the world, as Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury finally put pen to paper on a deal that will see them face off not once, but twice, for all the marbles in boxing’s biggest weight class.

Then we throw things forward to preview the main event of UFC on ESPN 21, as surging middleweight contender Kevin Holland takes on dangerous middleweight stalwart Derek Brunson.

It’s yet another packed show, with plenty of talking points to dive into. Hope you enjoy it!
