RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aliev lost to Warlley Alves via TKO (doctor's stoppage) at 5:00 of Round 2 at UFC 224 on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro.

You will have difficulty finding anyone who thinks this was anything other than the correct decision. After taking a considerable amount of damage over the course of the ten minute bout, Aliev's right eye suffered a disturbing amount of swelling. His corner was going to stop the fight if the cageside physician did not. If you didn't happen to catch the fight live, do yourself a favor and don't check out the end result on social media. It was a gruesome injury and a significant setback for the 33-year-old Aliev on the heels of his win over Bojan Velickovic in December.
