The UFC flyweight division hasn’t been the most exciting division once you get past the top 5 in the rankings, but just outside of them was an exciting match-up between Ode Osbourne and Zarrukh Adashev. The two met at UFC Vegas 56 on Saturday at the UFC APEX.
Osbourne (10-4) has had a mixed bag of results since entering the UFC trading off wins and losses. He was 2-2 in the UFC coming off a unanimous decision win over CJ Vergara at UFC 268.
Zarrukh Adashev (4-3) did not get an easy entry into the promotion where he is currently 1-2, but was coming off a decision win over Ryan Benoit in July 2021.
In round one, Osbourne’s length forced Adashev to move in and out with his quickness. He landed many shots, and heavy shots at that. Adashev tried to get close to land, Osbourne leaned back to counter, landed a right hand and ended the fight via TKO.
