UFC Vegas 47: Hermansson vs Strickland Results

Jack Hermansson, Sean Strickland, UFC

UFC Vegas 47 went down on Saturday night at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. In the main event, Sean Strickland completely neutralised Jack Hermansson to earn a split decision victory, although it should have been unanimous. Nonetheless, ‘Tarzan’ improved his winning streak to six in a row and should be looking at a top five middleweight contender next. In the co-main event, Nick Maximov maintained his perfect record by earning a split decision win over Punahele Soriano.

Elsewhere on the UFC Vegas 47 main card, Shavkat Rakhmonov continued his uber impressive run in the promotion by knocking out a dangerous opponent in Carlston Harris in the first round, Brendan Allen returned to winning ways with a second round submission win against Sam Alvey, Bryan Battle improved his UFC run to two wins in a row by beating fellow TUF 29 alumni Tresean Gore by unanimous decision, and Julian Erosa improved to two wins in a row with a split decision victory over Steven Peterson.
