So Daniel Cormier isn’t the man to dethrone Jon Jones as the champ holds on to his belt with a comfortable points win. UFC 182 confirmed that Jones is the undisputed top light-heavyweight in the world and arguably the pound-for-pound number one too.
The PPV card provided entertainment but no finishes so it’s to the undercard we go for a quick fix of athletic violence.
Paul Felder earned himself $50k with this spinning backfist KO of Danny Castillo in the second round of their lightweight fight.
Conor McGregor’s first UFC victim Marcus Brimage suffered his second career knockout loss at the hands of another debutant, Cody Garbrandt.
Shawn Jordan picked up another one of the fight bonuses for stopping fellow heavyweight Jared Cannonier in round one. Though I hope at least some of the $50k was awarded for the celebratory backflip. That guy is over 261lbs!
