You can’t expect much of the upcoming UFC Vegas 70 press conference unless the main eventers Brendan Allen–Ryan Spann start throwing bombs at each other. Nikita Krylov’s English is questionable, while the Brazilian Andre Muniz doesn’t speak it at all. There will be a lot of work for translators, that’s for sure.
Nikita “The Miner” Krylov will square off at UFC Vegas 70 against dangerous knockout artist Ryan Spann in the main event of the evening, while the co-main hosts the combat between submission specialist Andre Muniz and a well-rounded fighter Brendan “All In” Allen. As we've discussed prior, Hailey Cowan v Ailin Perez should be a fun all-around match-up, and the Nurullo Aliev v Rafael Alves match also should be solid. Ode Osbourne vs Charles Johnson looks very promising, as Ode starts throwing his nasty Muay Thai strikes as soon as the ref signals the beginning of the match. If you love technical wars, please take a look at Jasmine Jasudavicius vs Gabriella Fernandes on the UFC Vegas 70 card, as well.
There weren’t pre-fight interviews – Nikita Krylov and Ryan Spann only do interviews when they have to. Ryan Spann’s Instagram profile is set to private – he likes enjoying his privacy even on social media. But we might see some barbs at the presser, you never know.
Superhuman strength from @Superman_Spann 👊

UFC Vegas 70 Press Conference Greatest Moments
Here are the most entertaining moments from the UFC Vegas 70 presser. Please check the MMAJunkie’s playlist to see the greatest word exchanges and the most exciting answers to the press questions.
The Main Event
As expected, Nikita Krylov has improved his English skills. “The Miner” is excited for the first main event bout of his career. He believes he’s gonna beat the dangerous first-round finisher, Ryan Spann.
On the other hand, Ryan Spann is ready to take over the division and title, and he eyes a heavyweight move. Spann cuts so many pounds to reach the 205-pound limit, which significantly affects his cardio and creates a lot of problems in the later rounds, so his cruise 60 pounds north actually makes sense.
The Co-Main Event
The dangerous submission specialist Andre Muniz is ready to “invade the top of the rankings” with a victory at the UFC Fight Night 220. He didn’t look too worried about his opponent, Brendan “All-In” Allen.
Brendan Allen believes Andre Muniz “has met” his match in the grappling department. There’s a lot of respect on the end of Allen, but he plans to defeat the guy who submitted legendary Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
The Rest Of The Main Card
Don’Tale Mayes is facing Augusto Sakai on the main card of the UFC Fight Night 220. Mayes didn’t talk much about his upcoming bout and said that his training partner Jon Jones looks “strong” for his heavyweight debut. Let’s remember, Jon Jones will square off against Ciryl Gane at UFC 285 next week after a long lay-off.
Augusto Sakai was having lots of negative results recently. Yet, the Brazilian looks ready to start a new winning streak with a potential victory over Don’Tale Mayes at the UFC Vegas 70.
Tatiana Suarez hasn’t competed for a while, and she returns after a long break to meet Montana de la Rosa in a 125-pound match. Suarez aims for a flyweight win at the UFC Fight Night 220, but she’s also destined to hold the strawweight title.
Interestingly, her opponent Montana de la Rosa didn’t trash talk at the UFC Vegas 70 press conference. De La Rosa thinks Tatiana Suarez “has pressure to win return”. This match is going to be interesting, as the former BJJ champ Suarez hasn’t competed since 2019 when she scored a win over Nina Nunes. At the moment, Tatiana is riding on a great score with 8 wins and zero losses.
And finally, we have a Canadian fight on the main card, as Mike Mallot meets Yohan Lainesse. With a UFC score of 2-0 and wins over Mickey Gall and Trevin Giles, Mike believes Canadian UFC is ready for a resurgence in coming years. He didn’t look too upset about his upcoming bout.
Yet, Yohan Lainesse was very optimistic at the presser. He predicted a KO of Mike Mallot with the statement “when I touch, people fall”. Let’s see whether he’ll back up his promise inside the Octagon.
