Charles Johnson

Charles Johnson def. Azat Maksum via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Charles Johnson (14-6 MMA, 3-4 UFC) had a tall order in front of him to upset Azat Maksum (17-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who came into their flyweight bout unbeaten. But Johnson rallied after a slow first and pulled off the upset in a thriller.

Randy Brown def. Muslim Salikhov via TKO (punches) – Round 1, 3:17

Randy Brown (18-5 MMA, 12-5 UFC) glanced a missile of a right hand off the chin of Muslim Salikhov (19-5 MMA, 6-4 UFC), and one punch later it was over. The bonus was Brown’s first since November 2019 and just his second in the UFC overall.

Molly McCann def. Diana Belbita via submission (armbar) – Round 1, 4:59

Molly McCann (14-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC) had a two-fight skid at flyweight, so she set out to try something different. She went to work on her grappling, dropped to strawweight, and in perfect poetic justice submitted Diana Belbita (15-9 MMA, 2-5 UFC) with an armbar with one second left in the first round. The submission was the first of McCann’s career. The bonus was her fourth in her past four wins.
