UFC Fight Night 123 went down tonight (Saturday, December 9, 2017) from the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA, and was headlined by a pivotal featherweight tilt between perennial contender Cub Swanson and submission savant Brian Ortega. Ortega earned himself yet another come-from-behind finish, eliciting the tap from Swanson in the second frame. He jumped a standing guillotine after getting pieced up on the feet for the better part of two rounds, but the trapped Swanson had no choice but to ask out of the fight.
