UFC on ESPN 38 full results: Mateusz Gamrot vs. Arman Tsarukyan, results, highlights

The UFC ended a lightweight bout at their home base at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on June 25. The main event between Mateusz Gamrot and Arman Tsarukyan was an incredible five rounds of action, proving Why this matchup deserves UFC's top billing on ESPN 38.

11th-ranked Arman Tsarukyan continued his five-fight winning streak against 12th-ranked Mateusz Gamrot, who is set to win three fights. Both want to break this upper part of the lightweight division. Tsarukyan scored the second-round knockout of Joel Alvarez in his last fight in February, while Gamrot scored the second-round knockout of Diego Ferreira in his last fight in December.

Gamrot and Tsarukyan put on a thrilling wrestling performance that was full of counters and fights. Tsarukyan usually made more effective attacks, but Gamrot appeared the latest fighter in the final round.

The last three rounds on Saturday night were the difference between a back-and-forth, fast-paced fight. Tsarukyan took an early lead, using his body kicks to slow down Gamrot and his wrestling ability to stay away from Gamrot's take-down efforts. Gamrot managed to take down later in the fight. Tsarukyan admitted that this may be his first five rounds of competition and that the fatigue maybe even deeper.

Still, Tsarukyan knocked Gamrot off the first spin in the fourth round and kicked Gamrot off his feet in the fifth round. Gamrot appeared the latest, more aggressive fighter in the final round. Gamrot averaged 4 minutes, 58 seconds of control time, of which 4:24 came in the last three rounds, per ESPN stats and informational data.

And in the end, the three judges awarded Gamrot a 48-47 scorecard for winning a unanimous decision.

Gamrot (21-1, 1 NC) is about to win four fights. The Polish fighter has been unbeaten since his UFC debut, losing in October 2020 to Gorm Kottildze. Gamrot, 31, completed his last three wins on Saturday. He is a former KSW lightweight and featherweight champion. Gamrot was +220 underdog.

Tsarukyan (18-3) ended a five-fight winning streak. The Republic of Georgia fighter suffered only one UFC loss, beating Islam Makhachev, the top contender in Tsarukyan's UFC debut in April 2019. Tsarukyan, 25, was trailing which earned him a $ 50,000 Performance of the Night. Bonus

"I'm ready for everyone in the division," Gamrot said. "In the future, I will definitely be a champion."

Also in the co-main event, longtime veteran Neil Magny appears to be the leader to win the UFC Welterweight title all the time as he competes against emerging contender Shavkat Rakhmonov for his 20th UFC win. Also on the main card is a lightweight bout against Thiago Moises against Christos Giagos, a bantamweight fight between Nete maness and Omar Nurmagomedov, and a middleweight bout in which Chris Curtis competes against Rodolfo Viera.
