UFC Fight Night 120 went down tonight (Saturday, November 11, 2017) from the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, VA. The night was headlined by a lightweight battle between Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis.

The two engaged in a “Fight of the Year” contender through two rounds, with Poirier scoring with takedowns and ground and pound and Pettis threatening with submissions. The pair traded back-takes, scrambles, and elbows for the better part of three rounds, but Poirier gradually wore Pettis down. In the third round, he took Pettis’ back again, locked in a body triangle, and rolled over to mount as Pettis tried to turn into him. Pettis tapped as Poirier got to mount with the body triangle still in, apparently suffering an injury.

The co-headliner featured the retirement fight of action hero Matt Brown, as he took on another bonus hunter in Diego Sanchez. This one ended much more quickly and with finality. Sanchez pursued the takedown but was unsucessful. Brown caught a body kick – Sanchez’s other weapon of choice – backed him to the cage, and knocked him clean out with one vicious downward elbow.
