There have been several fights announced for the upcoming UFC Vancouver event on September 14.

One of the more notable bouts announced is a light heavyweight clash between Glover Teixeira and Nikita Krylov. The 39-year-old Teixeira comes off back-to-back wins over Karl Roberson and Ion Cutelaba. Teixeira has won three of his last four fights, last losing to Corey Anderson in July of last year.

Krylov most recently defeated Ovince Saint Preux in April with a second-round submission. More fights announced for the card include a heavyweight matchup between Todd Duffee – who returns after more than four years – and Jeff Hughes. Duffee hasn’t fought since his 2015 clash with Frank Mir, as he has been sidelined with several injuries over the years.

As for Hughes, a training partner of former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, he will attempt to bounce back after dropping his last bout to Maurice Greene. Hughes landed a UFC contract with a knockout win on Dana White’s Contender Series.

A few more confirmed bouts can be found below:

  • Heavyweight: Marcin Tybura vs. Augusto Sakai
  • Middleweight: Antonio Carlos Jr. vs. Uriah Hall
  • Middleweight: David Branch vs. Andrew Sanchez

A main event for the UFC Vancouver card has yet to be announced.

Earlier today (Sat. April 27, 2019), UFC Fort Lauderdale took place from the BB&T Center in Sunrise, California.

Closing out the early prelims on ESPN 2 was a phenomenal performance from longtime veteran Jim Miller. Miller took on Jason Gonzalez in lightweight action. He was able to get the fight to the ground and sink in a rear-naked choke just two minutes into the first round. After forcing the submission, Miller left the Octagon with the victory, and a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus.

On the main card, another longtime veteran in Glover Teixeira also proved he’s still a force to be reckoned with at 205 pounds. The Brazilian submitted Ion Cutelaba in the second round of their fight with a rear-naked choke. Teixeira’s performance was good enough for a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus.

Finally, in one of the most highly-anticipated fights of the night, Mike Perry picked up a huge win over Alex Oliveira. Both men left everything they had in the cage for three rounds, exchanging heavy strikes and leaving a blood-stained Octagon. When it was all said and done, Perry took home a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. However, both men will be getting a $50,000 bonus for Fight Of The Night.
