Hello everyone and welcome to 411mania’s LIVE coverage of UFC 284, I’m Robert Winfree and I’ll be your host for the evening. Tonight we have what is, on paper, one of the very best fights the sport has ever produced for a main event. UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski puts his pound for pound number one spot and his 12 fight UFC winning streak plus his overall 22 fight winning streak on the line when he moves up in weight to challenge for the lightweight title. The lightweight champion is Islam Makhachev on an 11 fight winning streak, current number two pound for pound, and looking for his first title defense. The two men have a combined MMA record of 48-2, Volkanovski has never lost at either featherweight or lightweight and if Volkanovski can become a double champion here it would add to a compelling case for him as an all time great while Makhachev is looking to start his own reign as lightweight champion by taking out maybe the most skilled fighter in the world. Things get a little less compelling down the card, but the co-main event is for the interim featherweight title when Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett square off, Rodriguez has been occasionally at odds with the UFC but also something of a golden boy as they wanted to develop the Mexican market and Emmett has been on a good run which has earned him this kind title opportunity. Top prospect Jack Della Maddalena is in action, still working off that 12/12 Contender Series contract when he takes on Randy Brown. Further down it’s a lot of the Oceania contingent but there’s potential for some good action.

UFC 284 comes to the world from the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. We’ve got Jon Anik, Dominick Cruz, and Michael Bisping on commentary. No Daniel Cormier is probably a good thing. As for the rules I’m not sure which set the Australian commission uses but I’m going to assume most of the newer ones though Instant Replay will almost certainly not be what it is in Nevada. If we get an update on the rules I’ll be sure to tell you. We are in the normal sized 30 foot diameter Octagon as we’re not at the Apex.

Zubaira Tukhugov had some momentum and hype around 2015 or so, but he’s fought just eight times in a UFC career dating back to 2014 and was last seen in October of 2021. Tukhugov had had issues making weight at featherweight, here he was hoping to turn over a new leaf by moving up to lightweight but managed to miss weight again and now needs a win just to try and smooth things over with the promotion. Elves Brenner is making his UFC debut on the back of a two fight winning streak and now looks for a notable win in his promotional debut. Tukhugov is a big -560 favorite to a tempting +430 comeback on Brenner.

Lightweight Bout: Elves Brenner (13-3, 155.5 lbs.) vs. Zubaira Tukhugov (20-5-1, 157.5 lbs.)

ROUND ONE: Brenner is two inches taller with four and a half inches of reach advantage. Some feinting and circling to start, and the “woo’s” are here already, God help us. Brenner lands a leg kick. Some more back and forth movement, big of a jab from Brenner. Tukhugov avoids a few punches, but there’s not a lot going on here. A little forward pressure from Tukhugov now, he lands a right hand. Brenner with a jumping knee that lands, Tukhugov counters with a right hand. Bit of a left hook from Tukhugov, then they trade punches in close. Another left hook from Tukhugov lands, he’s got Brenner backing up. Brenner lands a couple of calf kicks but Tukhugov keeps the pressure on and lands a one two. Those leg kicks from Brenner might be adding up, he’s committing to them but he doesn’t like the pressure of Tukhugov. There’s a cut around the bridge of Tukhugov’s nose, doesn’t look too bad but it bears watching. Inside leg kick from Brenner, and that cut might actually be up more between the eyes rather than on the bridge of the nose. Tukhugov misses a right hand. Both men miss punches. Tukhugov lands a right hand. Brenner misses a right, then misses a jumping kick. They’ll just stare away the final seconds.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Elves Brenner via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 30-27)

OK, that 30-27 for Brenner is total crap as there’s no way he won the second round. I can see Brenner taking the first, but I’m not sure about the third though maybe if you squint really hard. Commentary buries the decision, and there’s no interview for Brenner. Seriously, what in the down under Clucky was that?

Shane Young has gone 2-3 in the UFC and is on a two fight losing streak plus he’s been out of action for nearly two years, but he’s got a chance here to pull his UFC record back to the .500 mark. Blake Bilder is undefeated coming into his UFC debut and looks to capitalize on the only chance he’ll get to make a first impression. Young is a slight -150 favorite to +130 for Bilder.

SCORECARD: 10-9 Bilder, 29-28 Bilder overall

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Blake Bilder via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27 x2)

Mic time for Bilder, who feels he could have had more volume but Young had good power and he had to fight smart. He denies jitters and feels it was more about energy management given the potential jet lag given he flew here from California.

Loma Lookboonmee has been up and down while going 4-2 in the UFC, she’s coming off of a win and is looking to build another winning streak. Elise Reed has traded wins and losses while going 2-2 in the UFC, she’s coming off of a win though and is trying to build her first UFC winning streak.

ROUND TWO: Reed gets back to bouncing around and circling. Lookboonmee fires a few leg kicks, then avoids a right hand and hits a mat return then gets the back with both hooks in. Lookboonmee grabs at the choke, that’s under the chin and Reed tries to fight but can’t get to the hands to break the choke and has to tap.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Loma Lookboonmee via Submission, rear naked choke, at :44 of Round 2

Mic time for Lookboonmee and her translator, she felt she lost the first round and knew she needed to win big in the second and had to get the win for Thailand. She says the plan was just to hurt her opponent.

Normally having the part of the choke where your arms connect down towards the mat like this isn’t great, you can lose chest to back pressure and struggle to adjust your grip if it’s attacked. But the initial attack from Lookboonmee was so solid and so deep around the neck that the little details don’t matter quite so much.

Jack Jenkins brings a seven fight winning streak into his UFC debut, he’s looking to extend that streak and introduce himself to the wider UFC audience. Don Shainis had a five fight winning streak snapped when he stepped up on short notice to take on Sodiq Yusuff last year, now he’s back for his sophomore outing in the promotion and looking for that all important first UFC win. Jenkins is a pretty big -390 favorite to +320 on Shainis.

SCORECARD: 10-9 Jenkins, 30-27 Jenkins overall

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Jack Jenkins via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27 x2)

I can see an argument for Shainis in the second even if I don’t love it. Mic time for Jenkins, he plays with the crowd a bit then puts over Shainis as a tough opponent with good grappling but he came to win and did so. Asked about the future he wants to fight in May or June in the United States.

Francisco Prado is undefeated coming into the UFC, now he’s got a chance to remain perfect while scoring a win over a fairly proven UFC commodity. The odds are with Mullarkey at -275 to a +230 comeback on Prado.

Lightweight Bout: Jamie Mullarkey (15-5, 155 lbs.) vs. Francisco Prado (11-0, 154.5 lbs.)

Nice to see the judges not screw that one up. Mic time for Mullarkey, he’s happy that he kept his cool and fought well then plays with the crowd. Asked about the kimura at the end, he says it wasn’t that close but Prado was strong and with a few missteps it could have gone wrong. Then when asked who he wants next he says Paddy Pimblett because he’s going to prove that Scousers can indeed get knocked out.

Shannon Ross has been cursed with some bad luck in terms of canceled fights over the last few years, he was last seen losing on the Contender Series but here he is anyway looking for his first UFC win. Kleydson Rodrigues suffered a loss in his UFC debut last year then had a few fights fall through, now he’s finally getting back in the cage but he did manage to miss weight and needs a win to try and get beyond the weight gaff. Rodrigues is your -345 favorite while the +285 payout on Ross might be a tempting value bet.

ROUND ONE: Ross is an inch taller while Rodrigues has an inch of reach advantage, plus of course Rodrigues missed weight. They touch gloves to get us going.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Kleydson Rodrigues via TKO, body kick and punches, at :59 of Round 1

The First Round Finish Club thanks Mr. Rodrigues for his work this evening. No interview for Rodrigues, apparently there’s no translator for him.

Here’s the finish. Rodrigues smartly returns to body attacks as that’s where he hurt Ross, he’s a little lucky his silly spinning attacks didn’t get him countered or taken down but when he settled down the finishing flurry is very well done.

Josh Culibao has gone 2-1-1 in the UFC but he’s on a two fight winning streak and has never lost at featherweight, now he’s after his third win in a row and looking to begin establishing himself as a prospect of note. Melsik Baghdasaryan is on a seven fight winning streak including two wins in the UFC, this is historically about the time the wheels start falling off of Edmen Shahbazyan fighters so let’s see if Baghdasaryan can buck that trend and keep his UFC winning streak going. This one closed as a pick ’em with -115 on Culibao to -105 on Baghdasaryan.

Featherweight Bout: Melsik Baghdasaryan (7-1, 146 lbs.) vs. Josh Culibao (10-1-1, 146 lbs.)

Baghdasaryan fires a kick but Culibao lands a jab that off balances him, Culibao jumps on his back and grabs the choke, almost loses position but gets his hooks deep enough to control and he locks down the choke to force the tap.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Josh Culibao via Submission, rear naked choke, at 2:02 of Round 2

Heck of a comeback from Culibao, he was behind pretty much that entire fight. Mic time for Culibao, he’s asked about the groin kick and says it was bad and the kind of blow where you have to double check that everything’s still there. He plays with the crowd and thanks the fans as this is a dream come true for him. To close he wants a post fight bonus.

Here’s the finish. This misses the drop off the jab and the positional adjustment of Culibao, but for a guy who took a bad groin shot then a headbutt this has to feel good.

Tyson Pedro has shown moments of serious promise but also suffered some losses because of poor decision making, but after taking a few years off due to injury he’s gone 2-0 since returning in 2022. Pedro now looks to get his current streak to three in a row and start taking aim at higher ranked light heavyweights. Modestas Bukauskas was cut from the UFC in 2021 after Khalil Rountree injured his knee with a side kick, but he won a couple of fights in 2022 and now looks to return to the UFC with a win. The odds are pretty solidly with Pedro at -215 to +185 on Bukauskas.

We get our next Hall of Fame inductee announcement, it’s Jens Pulver going into the pioneer wing. Absolutely deserved, the man did incredible work in the early days of lightweight and frankly Pulver’s frame was more suited to bantamweight or featherweight yet he made his bones as a slightly undersized lightweight. The fact that Pulver ended his career fighting at flyweight should tell you everything about his frame.

Randy Brown is on a four fight winning streak and showing maybe his best form to this point in his career, but a win over the surging Della Maddalena would be a big one for him and might signal that it’s Brown who’s ready to step up in class going forward. Della Maddalena is the biggest favorite on the main card at -320 to the +265 underdog Brown.

He says he works hard on his game and once Brown gave him the neck it was done, he wasn’t letting go of that. He talks us through the finish and thought this one might go long because Brown is tough. Asked about being calm in the moment he says he’s always cool under pressure. Asked about the future he says he’s got a vacation coming up but wants to fight someone in the top 15 before the end of the year, which is absolutely fair.

Yair Rodriguez has only lost to Frankie Edgar and Max Holloway during his time in the UFC, he’s coming off of a slightly odd injury related win but his general body of work over the last few years has seen him move into this position to try and earn an interim title. Josh Emmett has only lost once at featherweight and is on a five fight winning streak, his last win was a hotly contested split decision but the overall winning streak justifies his place fighting for the interim title here.

Asked about what this means to him he says this has been a dream for years, and thanks God for everything then thanks a bunch of UFC brass. Next asked about potentially fight Alexander Volkanovski he doesn’t know when the chance will come but for now he doesn’t want to interrupt Volkanoviski’s fight and wishes the main event fighters the best.

Alexander Volkanovski is on an absurd 22 fight winning streak across featherweight and lightweight with a whopping 12 of those coming in the UFC which have seen him rise to claim the featherweight title and defend it four times, now Volkanovski is moving up to lightweight and is trying to solidify his claim as an all time great by taking the lightweight title as well.

Now asked about fighting Yair Rodriguez, he says he just wants to stay active and wants to be back at lightweight in the future but will settle things with Rodriguez. To close he gives love to Australia, he’d have preferred to win but there’s nothing wrong with challenging yourself and he warns the featherweights that they’d better watch out, but he still feels he’s the right man to beat Makhachev and maybe they’ll settle this in the future.
