Alexander Volkanovski managed to escape a few tight submissions to batter Brian Ortega in an all-out war at UFC 266.

UFC featherweight champion Volkanovski (23-1 MMA, 10-0 UFC) retained his title against Ortega (15-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) in the main event last Saturday, battling through a third-round guillotine choke which had him gargling. But Volkanovski put on a show by taking it right to the always tough and durable Ortega, earning the “Fight of the Night” honors.

In the co-main event, UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko (22-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC) put on yet another dominant performance when she stopped Lauren Murphy in the fourth round to retain her title.
