Gegard Mousasi extends his win-streak with a huge win against one of the scariest fighters Vitor Belfort who was reportedly retiring after this fight. Belfort was throwing combos countering Mousasi. In the second round, The Armenian Assassin kicked The Phenom in the head then finished him off with ground and pound.
Ovince Saint Preux lost to Jimi Manuwa. He was brutally knocked out by The Poster Boy’s left hook. This competition was important for both men to move on up the LHW rankings and avoid adding one more in their loss record. Manuwa bounced back from a KO loss to Anthony Johnson at UFC 191, while Jon Jones defeated OSP in their short-notice bout at UFC 197.
The Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson bout was awarded FOTN. While Jimi Manuwa and Iuri Alcantara both earned POTN.
