Paige VanZant    UFC    Flyweight
UFC president Dana White posted Monday on his personal Twitter account that VanZant sustained a broken right arm Sunday during her loss to Jessica Rose-Clark at UFC Fight Night in St. Louis.

Fantasy Analysis

The flyweight suffered the injury in the second round, when she landed a spinning back fist into Clark's head. Despite landing the big blow, VanZant's (7-4) injury proved costly in the third and final round, as she struggled to defend herself while effectively fighting with one arm and ultimately lost his second consecutive fight, this time in a 30-27, 29-28, 29-28 unanimous decision. It will likely take VanZant multiple months to recover from the injury, but she should be fully healthy and ready to return to the Octagon at some point later in 2018.
Doo Ho Choi    UFC    Featherweight
Choi lost to Jeremy Stephens via TKO (punches) at : of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in St. Louis.

Fantasy Analysis

Choi looked to be in control early in this fight. He was getting the better of the striking exchanges in the first round. He did particularly good work with his leg kicks. However, Stephens began landing his power strikes in the second round. Choi stepped in with a leg kick, and Stephens countered with an over hand. From there it was only a matter of time. He continued to push forward. Stephens eventually dropped Choi and continue to land strikes from the top. Choi has now dropped back-to-back fights and is expected to take a hiatus for mandatory military service in his native South Korea.
Jeremy Stephens    UFC    Featherweight
Stephens defeated Doo Ho Choi via TKO (punches) at : of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in St. Louis.

Fantasy Analysis

Stephens did not start fast, but he certainly finished the fight. After dropping the first round against Choi, he stormed back in the second. He hurt his opponent with a counter right off a leg kick. He sensed that Choi was hurt and continued to move forward. Stephens eventually dropped Choi to the ground and followed up with a diving strike into the guard. The referee was forced to stop the bout. Stephens has now won back-to-back fights in the UFC.
Paige VanZant    UFC    Flyweight
VanZant lost to Jessica Rose-Clark via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in St. Louis.

Fantasy Analysis

The move to the women's flyweight division was supposed to be a rebirth for VanZant. Unfortunately, she struggled in this fight and did not really inspire any confidence. She had some success on the feet, but she could not land consistently. VanZant also struggled to keep this fight on the feet. On the ground, Rose-Clark was the better grappler. VanZant appears to have abandoned her clinch-based attack for a range striking approach. She will need to go back to drawing board if she wants to continue competing at this level.
Jessica-Rose Clark    UFC    Strawweight
Rose-Clark defeated Paige VanZant via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in St. Louis.

Fantasy Analysis

Rose-Clark did enough to win this fight. In the first round, she ended up on top and took half guard. She mostly camped out there and took the round. In the second, she scored a takedown and tried to pass. VanZant scrambled and Rose-Clark locked in a triangle choke and nearly finished the fight. The third round was a striking contest that was mostly even. This was a big win for Rose-Clark, and the UFC women's flyweight division is wide open.
Emil Meek    UFC    Welterweight
Meek lost to Kamaru Usman via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in St. Louis.

Fantasy Analysis

Meek's best chance to win this fight was a guillotine choke inside the first minute. After that, Usman took over. He continued to land takedowns and work from the top. Meek did his best to stay in the fight, but he could not stop takedowns. Usman was able to score takedowns at will, and that was the story of the fight. Meek falls to 1-1 in the UFC and 9-3 overall.
