This Saturday the action returned in UFC, but undoubtedly one of the best performances was awarded Jennifer Maia, achieving a perfect submission. It defeated Joanne Calderwood, after taking his arm and about to break it. Anyway, it should be known these days if there was an injury or not, since the loser was in a lot of pain. Thus, the Brazilian ended everything in the first round, leaving one of the performances of this # UFCVegas5. After being defeated, the fighter was transferred to a hospital to undergo checkups and determine the cause of the fainting she had.
The UFC Fight Night Las Vegas 5 will be remembered as one of the events with the most medical abnormalities in the history of the UFC. Hours before the event begins, it was reported that Gerald Meerschaert could not compete against Ed Herman for having tested positive for coronavirus. Then another major fight fell out. Just before he made his trek en route to the octagon, Trevin Giles passed out, so his fight with Kevin Holland was canceled.
Already when the stellar event, with Derek Brunson’s victory, was about to end, the Flyweight contender, Joanne Calderwood, passed out. This was in the dressing rooms, after being defeated by the Brazilian Jennifer Maia. Dana White mentioned the blacking out of the media at a press conference. According to the Scottish representative (via MMA Fighting), the event occurred when she was sitting, so she could be immediately rescued by her fiancé and head coach, John Wood.

A night to remember
In turn, in what would be the UFC Apex Las Vegas’ first stellar fight, Trevin Giles suffered a decompensation before leaving. That being the case, their contest should have been suspended. Jun Yong Park had been left out due to coronavirus restrictions, so Kevin Holland was the one he would face in the Fight Night on August 1. The change was revealed by MMA Junkie’s Nolan King this Thursday afternoon, which left his rival a few days of preparation. Finally, for the other fighter, the fight did not happen.
Well, that was a difficult night at the office… congratulations to Jenifer Maia … I am very grateful for my family, friends and fans who are here to help me recover in this crazy life that we all share. It is a fight, every day we all fight, but not every day it continues our way. Thank you to all @ufc staff, umc..oh doctors and documents and my knight in shining armor @ bigwoodmma702 sorry for scaring you babe! # never give up », he expressed Calderwood, with a photo from the hospital.
