Rinya Nakamura extends his undefeated record from eight wins to nine after a dominant display which earned him an unanimous decision victory in California. The Japanese fighter has competed in three fights in the UFC as he looks to get closer to earning a spot in the Bantamweight rankings.


Marcos Rogerio de Lima vs Junior Tafa (Heavyweight Bout) - de Lima wins via TKO (R2, 1:14).

Pezao made good work of Junior Tafa despite the Australian fighting on one day's notice as it was the brutal leg kicks which would earn de Lima a TKO win in the second round.

Robert Whittaker just did enough to triumph at UFC 298 as despite getting stunned with a spinning wheel-kick from Paulo Costa in the first round, he showed toughness and heart in the last two round to earn the victory. The Reaper may not be next in line to fight for the Middleweight title bit he will face one more ranked opponent to prove he is the next title challenger.
