UFC Fight Night 70 was a success in Hollywood, California last night (Saturday June 25th, 2015) as we saw some seriously nasty finishes throughout the evening. Perhaps the most brutal was Yoel Romero’s main event TKO over former light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. The rising middleweight star bashed Machida to a gruesome finish, making his statement for a 185-pound title shot in the near future.

The ugly finish against ‘The Dragon’ was as clean cut as they come, but the bout wasn’t without it’s controversy. ‘Soldier Of God’ appeared to take a swipe at gay marriage in America, and the comments may have hit a nerve with the promotion, as they had clearly instructed Romero to clarify and dismiss the ‘No-Gay Jesus’ speech in the post fight press conference. It’s becoming the norm for ‘Soldier Of God’ fights to be marred by controversy.
