This evening’s (Sat., July 22, 2017) UFC on FOX 25 produced a wholly exciting night full of close, back-and-forth battles and exciting knockouts from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
In the main event, former middleweight champion Chris Weidman met rising 25-year-old Kelvin Gastelum. In an inspiring show of heart, Weidman used a gritty wrestling-based game to survive being dropped to dominate Gastelum in the middle rounds, securing a picturesque arm triangle choke to land an absolutely crucial win in a must-win bout.
Gritty fan favorite underdog Darren Elkins met New York native Dennis Bermudez in the co-main event, winning one of the night’s closest battles by split decision.
