Today’s (Sat., April 20, 2019) UFC on ESPN+ 7 from Yubileyny Sports Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia, wasn’t the most ballyhooed UFC event of the year.
However, it delivered an under-the-radar day of hard-hitting action for the fans who tuned in. In the main event, Alistair Overeem overcame an early surge from Aleksei Oleinik to score a huge first-round TKO following some lethal knees and ground damage.
Islam Makhachev outlasted Arman Tsarukyan in a hard-fought co-main event that went the distance. Also on the main card, Sergei Pavlovich scored an impressive KO while Roxanne Modafferi handed Antonina Shevchenko the first loss of her MMA career.
