UFC Vegas 31 at a Glance
The Vegas 31 had two main fights, Makhachev vs Moises and Miesha Tate vs Marion Reneau. There is no doubt that Makhachev stepped into the next level with his win. But he has been finding difficulties to get an opponent. Due to his dominant fighting style with wrestling and grappling, no one wants to fight him. Apparently, Makhachev challenged former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.
On the other hand, Miesha Tate’s return was successful. Despite being out of the octagon for five years, Miesha seemed so comfortable.
