PRELIMINARY CARD

Josh Sampo vs. Patrick Holohan

We open up action in the flyweight division, as Patrick Holohan (9-0) puts his unbeaten record on the line against Josh Sampo (11-3).

Round 1: Holohan has been out of action for a year, recovering from back surgery. He trains with Conor McGregor, who we will see later today.

Counter right lands by Sampo, as he catches Holohan flush on the side of the face. Out of nowhere, Holohan catches Sampo and he looks out.

Holohan transitions to the back off a slick reversal, locks in a rear-naked choke and has both hooks in. Sampo fights out, but Holohan is able to lock it right back up and he gets the tap and his first UFC win. Holohan ignites the Irish crowd right off the bat.

Cody Donovan vs. Nikita Krylov

We head to the light heavyweight division, as Cody Donovan (8-4) battles Nikita Krylov (16-4).

Round 1: Donovan quickly takes the center of the Octagon, but Krylov lands a head kick and forces Donovan back against the fence. Donovan fights off his back and tries for a toss, but falls to his back. However, Donovan finds an arm and appears to have an armbar locked up. Krylov, though, shows his skills and slips out, getting free. Great exchange on the feet, as Krylov does damage with a left hook. Donovan with a perfectly-executed double-leg takedown and into guard. Donovan decides enough is enough on the ground and stands up, which allows Krylov to get the better of the action with knees and lefts. Krylov does a great job of switching off a rear-naked choke and going to straight ground-and-pound, forcing the ref to call a stoppage just before the round ends.
