ABU DHABI — Saturday night marked an important moment in Ramazan Emeev’s UFC career.

Last time out, the Russian welterweight lost for the first time in his promotional tenure, dropping a decision to Anthony Rocco Martin.

But at UFC on ESPN 14, Emeev (19-4 MMA, 4-1 UFC) proved this was just a blip on the radar, as he cruised to a unanimous decision victory over Niklas Stolze (12-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on the undercard of the event on “Fight Island.” Emeev earned a pair of 30-27 scores and a 29-28 for the victory.

So what did it mean for the Dagestani competitor to get back in the win column, and where does he go from here? Emeev spoke with reporters, including MMA Junkie, after the fight, and you can hear his thoughts in the video above.

UFC on ESPN 14 took place Saturday at Flash Forum at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The card aired on ESPN and streams on ESPN+.
