UFC Fight Night took place on June 23rd from The Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. We had a trio of female bouts on the card. In the first, Ji Yeon Kim took a decision in a good fight from Melinda Fabian. Both fighters had their moments but Kim's aggressive striking seemed to be the difference as she was able to get off first in most of the exchanges. Next up Yan Xiaonan took a decision from Viviane Pereira. Xiaonan was the more effective striker and was able to land the more solid blows although Pereira also had her moments, just not as effective as Xiaonan. Later in the card, Jessica Eye took a decision from Jessica-Rose Clark. The first two rounds were very close, as both landed punches but Eye seemed more able to land hers and then escape before Clark could land as much of return. The third round was definitely Eye's round and she sealed the fight with a late takedown. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
