Despite being a sizable underdog, Merab Dvalishvili didn’t just defeat Petr Yan in the main event of #UFCLasVegas, but he swept the scorecards against the former bantamweight champion. With title aspirations in play, and his close friend and training partner Aljamain Sterling holding the #UFC’s 135-pound title, where does Saturday’s victory put “The Machine” in the championship discussion?

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and Jed Meshew react to Dvalishvili’s dominant performance against Yan, what could be next for both guys, and the surprising changing of momentum in the career of Yan over the last couple of years. Additionally, they discuss Alexander Volkov’s quick stoppage of Alexandr Romanov, Nikita Krylov’s first-round submission of Ryan Spann, Bruno Silva and Davey Grant’s sensational finishes on the prelims, and more.
