Another UFC Event has just successfully taken place at their Apex facility that normally hosts Dana Whites “Contender Series”. The pay-per-view had two of the more violent knockouts seen in recent events, along with complete domination by “The Lioness” Amanda Nunes.
Amanda Nunes had another perfect showcase against Felicia Spencer in a lopsided five-round victory. Felicia Spencer refused to give up even after taking numerous heavy blows that could have easily ended the fight.
The Bantamweight division picture has become a little more clear in its effort to find a new Champion. Sean O’Malley kicked the card off with a huge one-punch knockout on Eddie Wineland at 01:41 of the first round. O’Malley had a walk-off finish, and the future can only get brighter for the 25-year-old.
Cody Garbrandt had a huge counter-punch knockout later in the night right at the bell of the second round on Raphael Assuncao (04:59). Garbrandt was looking like his old self with quick and accurate hands since a 3-fight losing streak. Both O’Malley and Garbrandt’s knockouts received $50,000 bonuses.
Aljamain Sterling had an impressive submission victory against Cory Sandhagen by rear-naked choke in the first round. Another potential challenger for the Bantamweight belt that remains to be claimed.
Neil Magny took Anthony Rocco Martin into deep waters and put constant pressure on him especially as the fight went on. Magny weathered the early grappling storm from Rocco Martin and secured the possibly questionable unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).
