It is hard to know who to give the pre- fight ascendency to ahead of this rematch between the two former UFC strawweight champions. It was as emphatic a knockout as was seen in all of mixed martial arts last year and led to a prolonged absence from the cage for Namajunas.

The bantamweight title fight between Petr Yan and Jose Aldo was one of three championship matches on the UFC 251 card at "Fight Island," which is a quarantined area of Yas Island, built in conjunction with the Abu Dhabi government to help the UFC hold international events during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Though Aldo had success in the second round, in rounds one, three, and four, he was comfortably out-struck by Yan.

Then the fifth round happened.

Aldo threw one strike. It landed. And that was all he had to offer for the duration the final frame lasted, as he was instead getting hit again and again by a relentless Yan, who landed 113 of 120 strikes that round.

In the final minute of the fight, midway through the fifth, Aldo was on all fours, facing the canvas, defenseless. He was in no fit state to continue, yet the referee allowed Yan to wail punches down on him from left and from the right to Aldo's head, knuckling him to the body, and peppering him with hammer fists any way he wanted.

Yet the stoppage still didn't come.

And so Yan carried on hitting him. Again, and again, and again.

Eventually, far later than it should have come, the referee intervened.

Speaking at a post-fight press conference in the media tent next to the purpose-built, behind-closed doors Flash Forum venue, the UFC president Dana White said: "[It was a] horrible, horrible stoppage by the referee.

"It should have been stopped way sooner. [We'll have to] tighten up our refs and judges here on 'Fight Island.'"

White, though, did not think Aldo was too far out of his depth prior to the stoppage. "Aldo looked great for people criticizing him saying he didn't deserve another title shot."

Yan, too, credited Aldo for his performance in the opening rounds. "In the first and second round, he had hard punches and low kicks," he said.

"I waited and pressured him. After the second round, I started to work. It was a good knockout. I liked it."
