UFC Sacramento results: Main event ends in just 16 seconds!
The UFC returned to Sacramento this weekend with UFC on ESPN+ 13, and the results are in. It was an entertaining event that was rounded off with three straight, first round stoppages! In the main event Germaine de Randamie handed previously undefeated prospect Aspen Ladd her first loss after sharing the cage for just 16 seconds of fight time. De Randamie connected with a perfect right hand that sent Ladd crashing to the ground. The Dutch fighter followed up with one strike before referee Herb Dean stopped the fight – to Ldds protests. It was without a doubt a controversial stoppage, and one that Ladd has contested following the fight.
Fan favourite Urijah Faber returned in the co-main event, in what could not have been a more perfect comeback. Entering the bout in his home state with talented prospect Ricky Simon, Faber was a clear underdog. He needed just 46 seconds to dispatch Simon and secure one of the biggest wins of his recent career.
Josh Emmett also finished Mirsad Bektic via TKO in the first round, and Italian prospect Marvin Vettori returned with a decision win over TUF standout Cezar Ferreira. Full results for UFC Sacramento can be found below.
