UFC Fight Night 45 went down this past Wednesday (July 16, 2014) and provided fans at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a fantastic evening of action-filled burners and finishes.

The main card was filled with five knockouts and one submission, and the most notable finishes of the evening must...

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor did as he promised tonight (July 19, 2014) and stopped Diego Brandao in the first round of their fight by way of TKO.

UFC Fight Night (UFN) 46: McGregor vs. Brandao went down today (July 19, 2014) at the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland, and it was a fan thrilling card to say the least.

Joe Proctor and Justin Salas threw down last night (Wednesday July 16, 2014), during the eventful and very entertaining UFC Fight Night 45 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The fight started with Salas winning the opening stanza using big head punches. One such shot, a huge right hand, left a tennis ball sized swelling on the side of Proctor's skull. The nasty haematoma wasn't enough to detour the gritty TUF veteran though, as he opened the second round with conviction. The counter hook was on tap for Proctor,...
