UFC 266 goes down tonight (Sat. September 25, 2021) from Las Vegas, Nevada at the T-Mobile Arena and we have the results. The world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion compiled an excellent card for fight fans to enjoy. 

It’s headlined by a meeting between Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega in a featherweight title bout. 

Volkanovski went on a seven-fight winning streak under the UFC banner to earn the title fight against Max Holloway at UFC 245 where he won the title. He followed it up with a decision win over Holloway at UFC 251. Before UFC 245, in his previous fights, he finished Chad Mendes in brutal fashion at the UFC 232 pay-per-view event from the Forum in Inglewood, California and then a decision win over former UFC champ Jose Aldo at the UFC 237 pay-per-view event from the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil.

Ortega earned a 6-fight winning streak to get a title shot against then-UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway at the UFC 245 pay-per-view event. Holloway retained the title when he beat Ortega by fourth round TKO. Ortega rebounded with a decision win over Chan Sung Jung in October 2020. 

The co-headliner will see a flyweight title bout between Valentina Shevchenko and. Lauren Murphy. Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler in a middleweight bout, Curtis Blaydes vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik in a heavyweight showdown, and Jessica Andrade vs. Cynthia Calvillo in a women’s flyweight fight finishes out the main card.
