Despite not having a plethora of high-profile names competing, UFC Vegas 52 was a very fun watch. Jessica Andrade will take the headlines, and with good reason, as she finished Amanda Lemos with a standing triangle choke submission.

Charles Jourdain and Marc-André Barriault both picked up slick guillotine finishes on the main card, whilst Maycee Barber dominated Montana De La Rose over three rounds to pick up a unanimous decision victory.
On the prelims, Tyson Pedro and Sergey Khandozhko both knocked out their opponents after extended layoffs from the sport, while Aoriqileng put on a brutal beating against Cameron Else.
