Remains perfect in UFC

January 23, 2021
Albazi defeated Zhalgas Zhumagulov via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 257 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
All three judges gave Zhumagulov the first round and Albazi each of the final two frames. A submission specialist by trade, it took Albazi well over a round to find any sort of rhythm on the feet. He was the far more active fighter in addition to doing a nice job targeting the legs of Zhumagulov. It was by no means a dominant performance, but it was a clear victory for Albazi in a fight which was essentially a pick 'em. The 27-year-old Swede has now won each of his first two UFC bouts and has lost just once in 15 career fights.

The two flyweights were originally scheduled to fight this weekend at the UFC's event in Las Vegas, but the bout ended up being postponed.
