The third fight of this anticipated, 12-fight event’s main card occurred in the light heavyweight division, where Joachim Christensen welcomed the debuting Dominick Reyes to the UFC.
Reyes couldn’t have looked better in his debut. Seconds into the fight, he floored his dangerous foe with left hand. Though Christensen was able to regain his footing momentarily, he was then put down again by another thunderous left, and polished off by a series of clobbering standing-to-ground punches.

This is the third consecutive win Reyes has earned in under a minute, and his sixth first-round win overall. Just one of his seven wins has come by way of decision. He is now 7-0 overall, and immediately stands out as one of the hottest prospects in the light heavyweight division.
Christensen, meanwhile, falls onto a two-fight streak, having lost his last fight to Gadzhimurad Antigulov by submission. He’s now 14-6 overall.
