UFC on ESPN 11 took place on Saturday, June 20, headlined by a five-round match between heavyweights Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov. Blaydes won a unanimous decision, scoring 49-46, 48-47, and 48-46. Blaydes set the record for takedowns in a heavyweight fight with 14, in a contest many viewers felt was less than thrilling. After the fight, Blaydes indicated that he realizes that he will have to improve his conditioning for future five-round fights. Blaydes moved to 9-2 in his last 11 fights with this win, having only lost to Francis Ngannou.
Other standout records were set by veteran Jim Miller, whose 21st UFC victory put him in third place for the most wins in UFC history, tied him for third with Royce Gracie for the most submission wins in UFC history, and put him in first place for the most submission attempts in UFC history with 43.
