Elves Brenner


Help from judges in debut win
February 11, 2023
Brenner defeated Zubaira Tukhugov via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27) at UFC 284 on Saturday in Perth, Australia.
Brenner was visibly shocked when the decision was announced by Bruce Buffer, as was anyone watching on television. Entering as upwards of a +500 underdog, Brenner performed reasonably well when you take that into consideration. He landed 83 total strikes compared to 72 from Tukhugov, but there's zero doubt the latter landed the more meaningful, powerful shots. A 29-28 score in favor of Tukhugov would have been reasonable, for two of the three judges to score this fight for Brenner is shocking.
