UFC Fight Night 106: Belfort vs.Gastelum at Fortaleza Final Results

Brazilian icon Mauricio “Shogun” Rua took plenty of hard shots in Saturday’s UFC Fight Night co-main event at the Olympic Training Center in Fortaleza, Brazil, but the former light heavyweight champion gave opponent Gian Villante even more in return, allowing him to score a third-round TKO of the Long Island native and extend his current winning streak to three.
Beneil Dariush looked to be on his way to an upset win in his bout against fellow lightweight contender Edson Barboza, but the Brazilian bomber turned everything around with one shot, using a jumping knee to knock Dariush out in round two.
Albuquerque’s Ray Borg made a major statement in his bout against Jussier Formiga, winning a razor-thin three-round unanimous decision over the highly-ranked flyweight contender.
Alex Oliveira and Tim Means settled their score in welterweight action, Oliveira submitting Means in the second round of their rematch.
An illegal knee by Means rendered their first bout in December a no contest.
Kelvin Gastelum, Edson Barboza, Joshua Burkman and Paulo Borrachinha all earned the Performance of the Night bonus.

Resuts of UFC on Fox20: Holm vs. Shevchenko

Holly reversed the take down quickly by Valentina in round one. The Preacher’s Daughter controlled the cage fight and held her own striking. Shevchenko though has turned around the second up to the championship round. Holly Holm was handed his second straight loss, Valentina Shevchenko won by unanimous decision.

The co-main event headlining Edson Barboza vs. Gilbert Melendez was amazing. The Brazilian fighter put on a leg kick clinic. He defeated the Mexican-American in a lightweight bout via unanimous decision.

Herb Dean became controversial again with the stoppage he called on Francis Ngannou’s hammer on Bojan Mihaljovic which critics said was premature.

Herrig and Wineland took home Performance (s) of the Night bonus and then the Fight of the Night went to Knight Vs. Alers.
