Who won the UFC fight last night (August 6, 2022?

UFC Vegas 59 was the first event in eight years to see a 100% finish rate, with every fight on the card ending in a knockout or submission.

In the main event, Jamahal Hill cemented his status as a top heavyweight contender, picking up a quality win over former title challenger Thiago Santos. ‘Sweet Dreams’ was dragged into deep water, but still came away with a fourth-round stoppage victory.

The promising 31-year-old extended his winning streak to three. Prior to the event, Hill knocked out Jimmy Crute and Johnny Walker, each with first-round knockouts, in back-to-back outings.

The co-main event saw a resurgence from Geoff Neal, who now has two straight wins under his belt. He became the first man to stop Vicente Luque after he gave the Brazilian an absolute beating. ‘Handz of Steel’ improved to 15-4 and should receive a rankings boost in the welterweight division.

Vegas 59 also hosted the final of The Ultimate Fighter Season 30. Heavyweight Mohammed Usman has won a coveted UFC contract, beating teammate Julianna Pena Zac Pauga via knockout.

Juliana Miller also became the season champion in the women’s flyweight division. The 26-year-old prospect used his struggle to overwhelm Brogan Walker and secure the third-round TKO victory.

In the heavyweight division, Serghei Spivac also went two straight after knocking out Augusto Sakai in the second round. Maldovan improved to 15-3 with the win.

Finally, a lighthearted fight between Terrance McKinney and Erick Gonzalez opened the show’s main card. McKinney, who had his momentum derailed by Drew Dober in March, rebounded with an impressive first-round submission victory.
