To close out 2016, the UFC hit Las Vegas one final time for UFC 207.

The event was an extremely entertaining one which left fight fans with plenty of memories. From Alex Garcia’s first round KO of Mike Pyle on the preliminary card to Cody Garbrandt’s masterful performance against Dominick Cruz in the co-main event, to Amanda Nunes’ brutal 48 second KO of Ronda Rousey, UFC 207 delivered on all marks.
