Fight of the Night: Ricardo Lamas vs. Bill Algeo

Ricardo Lamas defeated Bill Algeo at UFC on ESPN+ 33 and afterward said he’s considering retirement. If it was, indeed, the end, what a way to go out, as Lamas earned a unanimous decision victory with 29-27 scores across the board.

Lamas and Algeo, who took the fight on very short notice, went at each other for 15 minutes, leading to a hard-earned victory for former featherweight title challenger Lamas.

Performance of the Night: Mallory Martin

Mallory Martin gave fans the most dramatic moment of UFC on ESPN+ 33.

In the first round of her fight with Hannah Cifers, Martin was dropped by a hard right hand then pummeled for the final two minutes, but she made it to the horn. The second round, however, was a different story, with Martin listening to her coaches and getting the fight to the mat. It was there that Martin managed to take Cifers’ back and sing in a rear-naked choke that led to the tapout at the 1:33 mark.

Martin let out a loud yell and afterward spoke about why she was so emotional.
