Congratulations to Rafael Dos Anjos on becoming the new UFC Lightweight Champion. Dos Anjos dominated for 25 minutes with an injured knee. It was revealed after the fight. He damaged Pettis’s eye in the first round and he wasn’t able to recover.
Congratulations also to Joanna Jedrzejczyk on becoming the new UFC Strawweight Champion. She had excellent takedown defense and also had amazing striking versus now former champion, Carla Esparza.
It seems Carla had one plan, to take her down but didn’t adjust her game plan once Joanna kept stuffing her takedowns. This was the first women’s title change in UFC history. Joanna Jedrzejczyk is also the first Polish champion.
Congratulations to both champions !!
