Dana White has been putting some huge fights ever since UFC has made its return after the pandemic outbreak and yet another UFC fight night is in the books after Cynthia Calvillo gets a dominating victory over former number one contender. Overall, this was an entertaining night for the fight fans despite the absence of the big names in UFC.

And the co-main event was a middleweight showdown between Marvin Vettori and Karl Roberson. There were many fans and experts who have criticized this fight card for various reasons.

“20 years. How many bad cards did we have in 20 years? I can count on one hand. Not every fight is for everybody. Don’t watch this one. Watch the next one. Don’t watch the next three. Watch the one after that. We have got nothing but fights going on all this summer. If you don’t like it don’t watch it.”
Ever since UFC has resumed action, there have been some spectacular events and fights. Though tonight’s event was not as big as last week’s PPV, Dana White seemed pretty happy with how things turned out. Dana White also stated:
