Photos: Yordenis Ugas Dominates Omar Figueroa Over Twelve

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - The co-main event of the pay-per-view saw top contender Yordenis Ugas (24-4, 11 KOs) drop previously unbeaten Omar Figueroa (28-1-1, 19 KOs) on his way to a unanimous decision in their WBC welterweight title eliminator. (photos by Stephanie Trapp, Ryan Hafey, Fox Sports).

Ugas got off to a strong start, connecting on a straight right hand that sent Figueroa into the ropes, which he held onto so he didn't hit the canvas, but enough that referee Russell Mora ruled it a knockdown.

Figueroa recovered and was able to make it to round two, where he continued his strategy of coming forward to try to hurt Ugas on the inside. Ugas was able to control that action on the inside, landing numerous uppercuts to stun Figueroa. However, the inside fighting led to Ugas being deducted a point by the referee in round five for holding.

Despite that, and being warned later in the fight for delivering low blows, Ugas dominated the fight according to CompuBox, out landing Figueroa 229 to 131 and connecting with 28% of his punches, to Figueroa's 22%.
 
After 12 rounds, all three judges scored the fight the same, 119-107 in favor of Ugas, who became the mandatory for the winner of the Errol Spence Jr. vs. Shawn Porter welterweight title unification.

The weird thing about this fight was how red Omar's face was before the fight even began.

I would love to see Yordenis Ugas vs Keith Thurman and Sergey Lipinets vs Danny Garcia.
