What a night of fights.

UFC 199 emanated tonight (June 4, 2016) from The Forum in Inglewood, CA, and may go down as the best event of the year.

The main event saw the unthinkable happen. Most people predicted a short fight, but not in the way that actually transpired.

Michael Bisping spoiled Luke Rockhold’s first title defense with a left hook he never saw coming. Rocked and floored by the punch, Rockhold was met with another strike as he tried to return to his feet. Follow up punches brought a swift end to the night, and saw Bisping crowned as one of the most unlikely champion’s in UFC history.

On a night that repeatedly broke MMA Twitter, “The Count” broke it the hardest with the defining performance of his career.

Meanwhile, the co-headliner also saw a significant underdog seeking redemption against the champion. But it was not to be.

Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz retained his strap for the first time in his second stint as the 135 pound ruler, besting Faber for the second time in a title defense. He now also owns the lead in their trilogy with a 2-1 lead after sweeping the scorecards for a unanimous decision.

See the reaction to the spectacular title fights below:

Yall wanna see a dead body? Well, you will after Rockhold annihilates Bisping. This is gonna be ugly. #UFC199
