The rivalry was settled at UFC 254 after Magomed Ankalaev finished Ion Cutelaba in round one of their long-awaited rematch to open the main card.

The pair squared of initially at UFC Fight Night: Benavidez vs. Figueiredo earlier this year in March. That matchup ended in controversy as the referee called the fight after seeing Cutelaba appear injured on the feet.
