After an exchange of hits on the ground, the referee Leon Roberts ordered the two fighters to continue standing with less than two minutes to go in the first round.

Arlovski took advantage of an opportunity to win the assault, but he was not able to reach his opponent steadily enough to hurt him.

In the last round, Arlovski was cut close to the eye and the referee interrupted the fight a few moments before relaunching the fight with 2:15 to go.

After a few seconds without any real action, Abdurakhimov shocked Arlovski with a knee injury and the former champion got another break. In the last moments, no fighter seemed to want to take things in hand.
