Vera (20-7 MMA) squared off with former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz in the headliner of tonight’s fight card in California.

‘Chito’ had entered the contest sporting a three-fight winning streak, his most recent being a unanimous decision victory over Rob Font.

Meanwhile, Dominick Cruz (24-4 MMA) had entered UFC San Diego on a two-fight winning streak, this after scoring decision victories over Casey Kenney (split) and Pedro Munhoz in his most recent Octagon appearances.

Tonight’s main event resulted in a nasty knockout, this after Marlon Vera connected with a high kick which sent ‘The Dominator’ crashing to the canvas (see that here). A few follow up shots were all that the referee needed to see to step in and stop the fight.
