UFC On Fuel TV 9 was broadcast worldwide earlier today from Sweden featuring some exciting fights and nasty finishes. Irish Phenom Conor McGregor displayed some incredible stand up skills en route to his TKO victory over Marcus Brimage. The finish earned Mcgregor the 60k check for knockout of the night.

Submission of the night award went to Reza Madidi for his anaconda choke over Michael Johnson. Madida was flattened by a head kick early in the fight and showed great resilience to come back and win.

Fight of the night went to Brad Pickett and Mike Easton for their technical three round thriller. Pickett emerged victorious by split decision while Easton notches his second consecutive loss.

The event, which took place in Stockholm, drew 14,506 spectators worth $2.71 million on the gate, making UFC On Fuel 9 the second most profitable European UFC show of all time. Barring the main event, the card actually delivered pretty well.

It was great to see Conor McGregor's unique stand up abilities, well worth the amount of hype that he rolled in on. Also of note was Ross Pearson's nasty knockout finish of Ryan Couture. Pearson put Couture away with a big left hook in the newcomer's debut.

    Super excited to have another Irish lad in the UFC. Conor is a serious fighter and is lookin like he may be a real deal in the division. Hope his ground game is incredible too. What a finish though.

    it was really hard for mousasi to knock out latifi because he was just back pedaling all the time, so disappointed for latifi, that was he's chance its getting knock out or knock him out, that wat he was saying in the interview.
