UFC 241 Prelims Roundup: The Action is Heating Up Before the Pay Per View Main Card

Here we go!

The UFC 241 Pay Per View main card is just about to kick off on ESPN+ and if history means anything, the action is just about to heat up.

With six decisions in the first six fights, Khama Worthy capped off the prelims with highlight reel first round knockout of highly touted prospect Devonte Smith. The biggest underdog on the UFC 241 card, Worthy picked the perfect time to deliver the most important moment of his career.


Earlier in the evening, bantamweight Cory Sandhagen scored a unanimous decision victory over third-ranked Raphael Assuncao.

Using his range, speed, and footwork, Sandhagen controlled the distance and touched Assuncao up with perfectly placed punches and kicks.

The prelims also delivered an early contender for UFC 241 fight of the night, as Drakkar Klose and Christos Giagos went toe to toe for the full 15 minutes, battering and shattering each other with nasty uppercuts and kicks.


In the end, Klose edged out the decision, calling out eleventh-ranked Gregor Gillespie after slamming Giagos to the matt.

Looking back on another all-time great UFC fight card, UFC 189: Mendes vs. McGregor, which began with the same slow build of decision after decision, which eventually led to a series of astonishing finishes, UFC 241 is on pace to deliver some of the best mixed martial arts fights in 2019.
