By the end of the night, it’s hard to say that UFC Columbus didn’t entertain, although it certainly dragged in significant stretches. Curtis Blaydes put on a showcase of his improved striking talents over Chris Daukaus in the main event. Alexa Grasso continued her climb up the flyweight ranks with a quick submission win. And Bryan Barberena & Matt Brown put on an old fashioned donnybrook.
So, is there an option for Blaydes that doesn’t leave him treading water in the heavyweight top 5? Who seems like the more dangerous potential title challenger between Alexa Grasso and Manon Fiorot?
