By JAKE CHASTAIN

| The UFC put on a spectacular event tonight in Indianapolis, Indiana as UFC Fight Night 27 took place at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The main event saw Martin Kampmann go to battle in a rematch with former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit.

We also saw Donald Cerrone go to war with Rafael dos Anjos in a lightweight battle and a handful of TUF alumni go to work as well. The card was stacked from top to bottom and there were many exciting fights packed with explosive finishes and unexpected upsets.

Kelvin Gastelum made his first UFC appearance following his championship TUF run as he defeated Bryan Melancon in the first round. The fight was also Gastelum’s first career fight at welterweight and, if you missed it, he looked great. Check out all the highlights here.

Following the night’s great lineup of fights the UFC awarded the top performers “Fight of the Night” bonuses. Each winner was awarded an extra $50,000 on top of their fight purse for their great performances. Here are the UFC Fight Night 27 Bonus Winners:

So there you have it, fight fans. Another UFC Fight Night is in the books and I think that every MMA junkie can be pleased with what they saw tonight in Indianapolis.
