    Lentz opens up with a leg kick but is soon on the back foot.

    He's now on the cage allowing Evloev to tee off.

    They're now back in the middle of the cage but Evloev is continuing to get the better of the exchanges.

    An accidental eye poke leads to a brief pause in the action, which resumes with Lentz shooting for a takedown.

    The attempt is unsuccessful and they're not trading heavy blows.

    Evloev lands a big right hand after catching a body kick and is continuing to pick apart his man.

    The right side of Lentz's face is badly swollen and he's continuing to take punishment.

    The round ends. Evoloev, in my opinion, has done more than enough to get the nod.



    Evloev is the aggressor early, putting pressure on the veteran.

    Lentz isn't wilting, though, matching the Russian stride for stride.

    Lentz tried for another guillotine on the back of a Evloev takedown but is unable to sink it in.

    Evloev is having success when he stays at range and makes use of his jab.

    Lentz is bleeding from his right eye. I'm not quite sure what cause the cut.

    Evloev shoots for a takedown but again finds himself in another guillotine choke.

    They're back their feet, with Lentz pressing forward and chopping away at Evloev's lead leg.

    A close round to call, that.


    Lentz is the aggressor early and has surprisingly opted to take down the Russian.

    Evloev reverses position and is now in in Lentz's guard.

    Lentz slaps on a guillotine but is unable to put enough pressure on Evloev's neck.

    The Carnie still has control of his man's neck, though.

    Evloev finally frees himself from the hold and is now on top of Lentz and looking to pass to half guard.

    Lentz is going for another guillotine but Evloev pops his head out. Evloev ends the round with a big right hand after both men return to their feet.


    Veteran referee Herb Dean will oversee the main event between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor.

    England's Marc Goddard, meanwhile, has been tasked the job of overseeing the co-main event of the morning.


    Veteran Nik Lentz will take on undefeated featherweight prospect Movsar Evloev.

    Russia's Evloev was last in action in July against Team Kaobon's Mike Grundy, who Lentz was supposed to fight last week.

    Because of the short-notice nature of this bout, it will be taking place at a catchweight of 150lbs.
