This evening (July 6, 2014), as from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, the UFC closed out its fight weekend with the presentation of “The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19: Edgar vs. Penn III” Finale.
The night was a solid slate of fights and saw Eddie Gordon take home the TUF middleweight trophy with a fast first round KO stoppage of Dhiego Lima, while light-heavyweight Corey Anderson followed up with an even quicker win, taking out Matt Van Buren by way of a dominant round one TKO and earning the 205 pound TUF trophy.
Of course the big story of the night was featherweight Frankie Edgar’s trashing of BJ Penn. Finishing the MMA legend in the third round by way of TKO, Penn had absolutely nothing in the way of offense or defense against the No. 3 ranked Edgar’s onslaught.
With the night concluded, the event’s post-fight press conference is up next and should be commencing shortly.
