The highly anticipated middleweight main event proved to be a coming out party for Brendan Allen. ‘All In’ put together the best performance of his career, dominating his Scottish opponent in all areas of the fight before eventually earning a rear-naked choke finish in round three. The win marked Allen’s sixth in a row and has him primed for a big fight in his next Octagon appearance.

UFC Vegas 82 was co-headlined by a welterweight fight featuring Michael Morales taking on Jake Matthews. The bout resulted in a back-and-forth affair, but it was Morales who ultimately landed the more effective strikes and won the contest by unanimous decision.

Following the conclusion of tonight’s event, UFC officials announced at the post-fight press conference that four fighters would be taking home performance bonuses.
