Tafa won the battle in just 66 seconds. Tafa narrowly avoided Porter’s attempt to land a powerful overhand right while reacting with a lethal left hand. Immediately Porter fell to the canvas and rolled over onto his back with his arms outstretched. Tafa saw no need for additional follow-up punches because he was obviously out of sorts. Jason Herzog, the referee, quickly evaluated the situation and adjourned the altercation.

The sequence began with Rodrigues diving into a left hand with his knee, which seemed to annoy Ross, who wiped his face and changed stances. Rodrigues kicked him in the body, followed by a flurry of punches. Before concluding the battle with additional punches, Rodrigues exuberantly leaped, turned, and rammed his back into Ross at one point.
Rodrigues’ first victory in the competition follows a disastrous debut at UFC 274 in May. In his UFC debut, Ross is unsuccessful, as he has now dropped three of his last four fights.
