UFC on ESPN+18: Live Results


We have a great day of fights to look forward to today; first we have UFC Copenhagen, and afterward we have Bellator 228, where we see the featherweight gran prix play out further. Headlining the card today in Copenhagen will be top ten UFC middleweights Jack Hermansson and Jared Cannonier. Hermansson has gone 6-2 thus far in the UFC, and Cannonier is a completely different fighter at middleweight, going 2-0 thus far in the division. Cannonier also has KO wins at heavyweight, light heavyweight, and middleweight inside the promotion, which means he can certainly knock any middleweight out alive. Tune in to see how these great match ups go. Live Results posted below:
