UFC Beijing Videos! Watch Overeem Demolish Hunt, Ngannou Flatten Henrique In Debut

The heavyweight action will spill over into the Octagon tomorrow morning (Sat., Nov. 24, 2018) at UFC Fight Night 141 live on Fight Pass from inside Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China, as Curtis Blaydes meets Francis Ngannou in the main event and Alistair Overeem welcomes Sergey Pavlovich to the Octagon in the co-main event.

With four heavyweight knockout artists leading the way, UFC Beijing should deliver on arrival. And considering fight fans here in the United States will have to wake up bright and early to catch the main card action, at least they can expect some highlight reel finishes.

In case you’re unaware of what these heavyweight contenders are capable of doing, UFC has released some of the best finishes between the bunch. In the above video, Overeem can be seen landing a vicious knockout finish over veteran Mark Hunt at UFC 209 last year. The below video, on the other hand, features Ngannou’s uppercut finish against Luis Henrique in his UFC debut three years ago.

If these videos don’t make you a believer then maybe the statistics will. Blaydes, who will try to win his fourth-straight fight in the UFC’s heavyweight division, has finished eight out of 10 career wins by way of knockout or TKO. Ngannou, who is trying to end a two-fight losing streak, has finished seven out of 11 career wins by knockout or TKO. Overeem, who is looking to avoid just his second career three-fight losing streak, has 21 total knockouts through 43 professional victories. Pavlovich, who will be making his UFC debut, has scored nine knockout finishes through just 12 career wins.

Those are pretty wild numbers, which leads us to believe neither UFC Beijing’s main event or co-main event will go the distance. Of course, anything is possible. But if history tells us anything it’s that these four heavyweights will do everything in their power to finish their respective fights this weekend in China.

UFC Fight Night 110 results from last night: Ion Cutelaba vs Henrique da Silva fight recap

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight sluggers Ion Cutelaba and Henrique da Silva brawled last night (June 10, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 110 inside Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand.

Cutelaba entered this bout as a serious fighter to watch, one of his division’s better prospects. The young wrestler packed some considerable power and aggression into his game, and he even got up in his foe’s grill during the introductions! This was a very important battle for da Silva. The Brazilian “Frankenstein” came up big with a pair of finishes in his opening UFC fights, but he’s also lost his previous two. To remain a prospect, da Silva had to find a way to earn the victory.

Cutelaba went after his opponent immediately. He cracked da Silva clean with a huge right hand that stunned the Brazilian, following up with a series of blows in the clinch. A left hand sent da Silva to the mat, and the Combat Sambo specialist followed him there.

From top position, Cutelaba postured quickly and dropped hard shots. Da Silva had his whits about him — somewhat — and attempted an arm bar, but the Russian simply kept dropping punches on him. Rather than adjust to defend himself, Cutelaba hung onto the arm and ate shots until he slipped into unconsciousness.

The whole thing took less than one minute!

There’s not much to analyze here, but Cutelaba fought perfectly. He was quick and accurate early on his feet, finding a home for his massive right hand early. Once he landed, “The Hulk” swarmed, rocking his opponent worse and sending him to the mat.

Once Cutelaba gained top position, he unleashed some ferocious ground strikes and sealed the deal. It was a perfect display of killer instinct, as he brutalized a wounded foe without getting overzealous.

At 23 years old, Cutelaba is one of his division’s best prospects. He shouldn’t be thrown in the deep end just yet, but a battle with someone like Ilir Latifi would make sense. As for da Silva, this is a very disappointing result for the scrappy Brazilian. “Frankenstein” is comfortable in brawls and has always shown a solid chin; he just got demolished early.

It happens.

Having lost three straight, there’s a chance this is da Silva’s last appearance in the Octagon for the time being. That said, he should be able to stick around, as the 205-pound division needs as many faces as it can find.

Last night, Ion Cutelaba absolutely ran through his opponent. Who should “The Hulk” face next?
