In the opening bout of the main card, Lamas was able to capitalize on a mistake made by Koch to earn a vicious TKO stoppage in the second round.
In the highly anticipated lightweight showdown between Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone, Pettis proved too much for the ‘Cowboy’ and stopped the Greg Jackson trained fighter in the first with damaging kicks to the body.
Rampage Jackson made his last stand against the fast rising Glover Teixeira. The two light-heavyweights delivered an action packed three-round fight, but in the end, Glover was able to out point the former champ in Jackson.
In the main event Demetrious Johnson survived an early scare from the strong left hand of Dodson that had him dropped multiple times in the first two rounds, however ‘Mighty Mouse’ persevered and was able to retain his title via decision.
