UFC Fight Night 121: Werdum vs Tybura
UFC Fight Night 121 is being heralded by many as perhaps one of the strangest events in MMA history.
In the sense that this has been officially declared as the longest 13-fight UFC card in history, starting at 10:30 am local time and ending at 5:22 pm.
Regardless, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum maintained his position in the elite at 265, by outclassing Marcin Tybura; albeit getting rocked in the final round. Furthermore, the main card (FOX Sports 1) and UFC Fight Pass prelims, featured fights which all went the distance.
What served to further accentuate the troughs and peaks throughout the event, is that the FOX Sports 1 preliminary card saw every fight showcase highly-entertaining exchanges throughout. So, without further ado, here are the results for UFC Fight Night 121: Werdum vs Tybura—
