Biggest Winners, Loser For UFC Vegas 29

Date: 2021-06-20

Photo by Chris Unger/Zuffa LLCUFC Vegas 29 went down last night (Sat., June 19 2021) inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, which saw Chan Sung Jung dominate Dan Ige for five rounds (see it again here) in the main event of the evening. In the co-main event, Serghei Spivak defeated Aleksei Oleinik after 15 minutes of Heavyweight action. Biggest Winner: Chan Sung Jung “The Korean Zombie” put one of the best and most dominant performance of his career against Ige, showing off pretty much every aspect of his well-rounded arsenal. Ige did have a few bright moments, but it was all Jung, who showed great patience when it was needed and pounced when the opportunity presented itself. The win puts him back in the win column after losing to Brian Ortega in his last bout, which nearly prompted him to retire from the fight game. Instead, he is now in the thick of the Featherweight championship picture, especially with Max Holloway having to bow out of his bout against Yair Rodriguez. Runner U

Naoya Inoue hits hard. | Photo by Steve Marcus/Getty ImagesThese body shot knockdowns will have you writhing in pain too. You would be hard pressed to find a more exciting and more destructive high-level boxer in the world right now than Naoya ‘The Monster’ Inoue (21-0, 18 KOs). The WBA and IBF bantamweight champion took on mandatory challenger Michael Dasmarinas (30-3-1, 20 KOs) in Las Vegas on Saturday night, predictably installed as a heavy favorite. Just because he’s a heavy favorite doesn’t mean he isn’t a marvel to watch. It took him just three rounds to score three liver shot knockdowns and ultimately the TKO victory. I’m not going over the top when I say that just watching these knockdowns and hearing the sound of the punches thudding against Dasmarinas is enough to make one grimace. And the damage begins! @naoyainoue_410 goes after the liver, Dasmarinas goes to the canvas. Ouchhhh.#InoueDasmarinas | LIVE NOW on ESPN pic.twitter.com/9GKMbngcMM— Top Rank Boxing

In his return to the boxing ring, Anderson Silva (1-1, 1 KOs) surpassed expectations as he defeated former WBC middleweight titleholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (52–5–1 (1), 34 KOs) by split decision. Chavez Jr opened up the first round landing to the body of Silva. Midway through the round Chavez Jr landed a good left hook but Silva took it well.

Chavez Jr had ‘The Spider’ backed up against the ropes but most of his punches missed or were blocked. Silva walked himself against the ropes late in the round and encouraged the aggression from Chavez Jr. Silva had Chavez Jr on the ba

Silva definitely held his own in the first three, but Chavez Jr. seemed to land more often and connect with the cleaner blows.
