Despite Ferguson's resilience, Pimblett dominated the second round, maintaining top position and delivering punches, although Ferguson retaliated effectively from the bottom, causing visible damage.

Even with a relentless start to the third round by Ferguson, Pimblett managed to secure a crucial takedown and finished the fight on top.

Former Navy Seal David Goggins, who has supported Ferguson in the past, couldn't alter the course of the match. Pimblett, exhausted but determined, earned unanimous 30-27 scorecards from the judges, enhancing his flawless UFC record to 5-0.

In a sportsmanlike gesture, Pimblett urged the crowd to applaud Ferguson, acknowledging the potential end of the 39-year-old's remarkable UFC career, now on a seven-fight losing streak.
