Check out the live results and highlights for UFC Vegas 69: Andrade vs. Blanchfield.

Stay up to date with what’s happening today at UFC Vegas 69, which is going down from the oh so familiar APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Atop the main card sits a top-ranked flyweight fight between the UFC’s former strawweight champion, Jéssica Andrade, and a surging 125-pound contender in Erin Blanchfield.

Andrade is on a pretty sweet three fight winning streak. She knocked out Cynthia Calvillo in the first round, and then dropped back down to 115-pounds to pull off an impossible standing arm triangle on Amanda Lemos… also in the first. In Jéssica’s last match, she won a unanimous nod over Lauren Murphy, so getting past Blanchfield could very well put her right back into a title fight.

As for Blanchfield, right now she is listed as the UFC’s #10 ranked flyweight, and is currently enjoying a lengthy seven fight winning streak. She’s competed four times in the Octagon, winning two decisions and snagging two submissions. Erin is rapidly on the rise, and now has a clear path to the title if she can pull off the win. It will not be easy, though, since Andrade is basically the assistant champion of the strawweight and flyweight divisions.

The main card is slated for 7:00pm ET/4:00pm PT, and the preliminary bouts begin at 4:00pm ET/1:00pm, PT — all of which can be streamed on ESPN+.

Jamall Emmers def. Khusein Askhabov by unanimous decision (30-27 x3): Featherweight

Askhabov was looking for the takedown in the opening round. Emmers was defending well against the cage, but took a knee to the cup. The foul paused the action, and then the match was restarted in open space. The fighters began exchanging low kicks, with both connecting with power, but Askhabov was doing a better job of checking some of them. It was a highly competitive round.

Emmers had a strong start to the second round. He was staying long and using his straight punches to score. Askhabov was still exploding into his strikes, and even landed a slick up kick from his back at one point. The explosions got the better of him, though, as he threw a spinning backfist and got dropped for it.

Askhabov had lost most of his explosiveness in the third. Emmers was able to stuff the takedown attempts, and surf atop Askhabov. Credit to Askhabov for continuing to move and scramble, but Emmers was all over him. Time expired as Emmers attacked with a Kimura attempt.

Philipe Lins def. Ovince St. Preux by KO at :49 of round 1: Light Heavyweight

Lins rocked OSP with a straight left in the opening exchange, and then stepped on the gas. He chased OSP all around the cage behind fists of fury, not allowing the veteran a chance to recover. Just as OSP tried to circle out, another haymaker landed that dropped him. Lins dropped down with a ground strike, but the referee was already coming to the rescue of OSP.

AJ Fletcher def. Themba Gorimbo by submission (Guillotine) at 1:37 of round 2: Welterweight

Gorimbo picked up an early takedown, but was so busy trying to control Fletcher that he wasn’t able to do any damage. Meanwhile, Fletcher made use of his time in the full mount by dropping some hammers. Gorimbo threatened with a leg lock to get out of the bad position, and that’s where the round came to a close.

We saw a guard pull from Gorimbo to open the second round, and was able to summon his inner Demian Maia to get on top. He took the back and went for an RNC, but Fletcher quickly escaped and stood up. In the clinch, Fletcher uncorked a nasty elbow that rocked Gorimbo, and then addressed the takedown with tight guillotine. Gorimbo rolled to his back to try and relieve the pressure, but the squeeze was on Fletcher earned the tap.

Clayton Carpenter def. Juancamilo Ronderos by submission (RNC) at 3:13 of round 1: Flyweight

The fighters got to work right away, exchanging combos in the middle of the Octagon. Ronderos then changed levels and drove through Carpenter for the takedown. From his back, Carpenter threw up a triangle attempt, and although he didn’t get it, it was close enough for him to sweep on top. Ronderos gave up his back, and Carpenter hated for a rear-naked choke. Ronderos was stuck and had to tap out. Great debut for Carpenter here!
