UFC Vegas 77: Mayra Bueno Silva Shocks Holly Holm with Upset Victory

Mayra Bueno Silva shocks the MMA world with a submission victory over Holly Holm at UFC Vegas 77. Read more about the event and its implications.

UFC Vegas 77 took place last night in Las Vegas, Nevada, delivering an unexpected upset in the main event. Mayra Bueno Silva pulled off a stunning victory by choking out former Bantamweight champion, Holly Holm. This surprising outcome has shaken up the division and opened up new possibilities for the contenders.

In the co-headliner, Jack Della Maddalena secured a split-decision win against Octagon newcomer, Bassil Hafez. Maddalena’s victory extends his impressive win streak to 15 straight, maintaining his undefeated record inside the Octagon with five wins. His performance in this short-notice fight has earned him recognition and sets the stage for potential future matchups.

With Holm’s loss, the landscape of the Bantamweight division has shifted. It is now expected that Julianna Pena and Raquel Pennington will compete for the vacant strap. This means that Bueno Silva will need to secure another victory before she can contend for the championship. One potential matchup for her is against Irene Aldana, who recently suffered a defeat in a title fight against Amanda Nunes.

Meanwhile, Maddalena has his sights set on facing Sean Brady, who was originally scheduled to fight him at UFC 290. A series of unfortunate events led to the cancellation of their bout, but Maddalena is determined to make this matchup happen. A potential co-main event slot at UFC 293 in Sydney, Australia on Sept. 10 could provide the perfect platform for this highly anticipated fight.

Other notable performances from UFC Vegas 77 include Prado’s first win inside the Octagon with a first-round TKO victory over Ottman Azaitar, and Elder’s victory over Genaro Valdez, securing his first UFC win. These fighters are just beginning their journeys in the UFC and have a promising future ahead. Matching them up against each other in their next fights will provide an exciting opportunity to showcase their skills.

Park also had an impressive win, submitting Albert Duraev with a rear-naked choke. This victory extends his win streak to four, placing him in a strong position to break into the Top 15 rankings. A matchup against Borralho, who is on an 11-fight win streak, would be a thrilling battle between two surging middleweights.

In the women’s Featherweight division, Dumont is in need of a challenging opponent. With limited options at 145 pounds, a matchup against Nunes, who is on a nine-fight win streak, makes perfect sense. This clash between a seasoned veteran and a rising star would undoubtedly bring excitement to the division.

Sadykhov continued his impressive run by submitting Terrance McKinney in round two, extending his win streak to nine. His performance in the UFC has been remarkable considering his background in the Contender Series. A potential matchup against Klose, who has won two straight fights, would test Sadykhov’s skills against a higher level of competition.

With several intriguing matchups on the horizon, the aftermath of UFC Vegas 77 has left fans eagerly anticipating the next chapter in these fighters’ journeys. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements as the division continues to evolve.
