A UFC fighter fell out of the cage on Wednesday night in Abu Dhabi after taking too many vicious elbows to his head. Andreas Michailidis just couldn’t gather himself at the end of the first round during his contest against Modestas Bukauskas in a 185-pound bout on the undercard of UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Ige. When the cage door opened to let the corners in so that they could enter and do their work, Michailidis fell backward into the opening and the fight was waved off.

You can watch Michailidis fall out of the Octagon below.

UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Ige was the second UFC card at Fight Island on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The first was UFC 251: Usman vs. Masvidal on July 11. The company is set to stay in Abu Dhabi for the rest of the month for its busy upcoming schedule.

Calvin Kattar Won Important Fight Against Dan Ige

Featherweight contender Calvin “The Boston Finisher” Kattar beat Dan Ige on Wednesday in the main event of the latest UFC card on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. The unanimous decision win gives Kattar two wins in a row now in 2020 and the same since his tough loss to Zabit Magomedsharipov last year.

While the two fighters seemed to be matched evenly at first, Kattar’s longer frame helped him get the better of the exchanges most of the night, especially during the fourth and fifth rounds when both fighters started to tire.

Ige’s quickness helped him most during the early rounds, but Kattar just had too many physical advantages for Ige to overcome as the night progressed.

On top of that, Kattar’s slick boxing moves helped make the New England-based fighter just a little too hard to beat.

Kattar is ranked No. 6 in the featherweight division, and he isn’t likely to drop after this performance.
