UFC Fight Night 112: Chiesa vs. Lee

Sunday evening, fight fans tuned in for a highly anticipated night of fights in Oklahoma City headlined by a lightweight clash between two of the lightweight division’s most exciting prospects, Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee.

The main event scrap, which drew attention following an infamous scuffle at a UFC press conference that saw Lee punch Chiesa, was an extremely controversial one that saw Lee pick up a first round submission victory after referee Mario Yamasaki stopped the fight after Chiesa stopped hand fighting the submission.
