This Sunday, fight fans tuned in to an action packed night of fights in Oklahoma City, headlined by a highly anticipated grudge match between two of the lightweight division’s most promising fighters. When Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee fought however, it was a rather controversial affair, which many felt didn’t do the matchup justice. Ultimately, Kevin Lee won the scrap after Chiesa stopped hand fighting and referee Mario Yamasaki stopped the fight when Chiesa appeared to go limp.
Also on the main card, in the co-main event, Tim Boetsch handed former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks his first loss at middleweight after his successful debut earlier this year against Hector Lombard. Below you can see the full salary report for the card courtesy of BloodyElbow:
