Next fight of Curtis Blaydes is not determined yet.
UFC heavyweight Curtis Blaydes told why, in a fight with Russian Alexander Volkov, he could not carry out a single series of elbow strikes when he was on top. Last June the American won by unanimous decision.
The fight of Curtis Blades and Derrick Lewis was supposed to take place back in December, but then Blades fell ill with the coronavirus. Later, information appeared that the battle was postponed to January 20. But today "Razor" announced that the fight will take place on February 20.
UFC On ESPN 18, which will take place on November 28 in Las Vegas, was left without a main event. As it became known, Curtis Blades passed a positive test for coronavirus, so his fight with Derrick Lewis was canceled. According to rumors, they want to transfer this fight to one of the December tournaments.
Francis Ngannou got back on track with a ferocious performance during UFC's first visit to Beijing, knocking out Curtis Blaydes just 25 seconds into the main event of a UFC Fight Night at Cadillac Arena. Blaydes tried to establish his wrestling game right from the start, but his attempt at a takedown was unsuccessful. Before he could try another, he was tagged by an overhand right, which dropped him to the canvas. Blaydes reached for a leg to try to save himself with some clear-the-cobwebs grappling, but he quickly wilted under an onslaught of fists.
