Main Card Results | UFC 298: Volkanovski vs Topuria

There were few moments of inactivity in this one, as if the 135-pound contenders weren’t trading strikes and looking for angles, they were clinched, grappling, and grinding. While Cejudo started well, the pace and pressure of Dvalishvili took over in the second round, taking the wind out of the former two-division champion’s sails.

When the scores were added up, “The Machine” emerged victorious, securing his 10th consecutive win and third straight triumph over a former bantamweight champ. The 33-year-old Georgian has to be considered the No. 1 contender at this point, and will surely be watching next month’s title clash very closely.
