UFC Lightweight Champion Islam Makhachev retained his title with a fifth-round submission victory at UFC 302 in Newark, New Jersey. Makhachev tapped out challenger Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier with a Brabo choke late in their competitive fight to remain atop the 155-pound rankings.

In the UFC 302 co-feature, Sean “Tarzan” Strickland outpointed Paulo “The Eraser” Costa in a middleweight bout that was far less competitive than one scorecard suggested. At Deep Jewels 45, Saori “Little Giant” Oshima unified the 97-pound Deep and Deep Jewels Microweight Championships.
