UFC 192 went down this past weekend (October 3, 2015) from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, and it was quite the event.
The card was kicked off right with the fight pass prelims featuring a heavyweight knockout, as well as the breakout of a potential superstar in “Super” Sage Northcutt.
The FOX Sports 1 prelims were capped off by a solid women’s strawweight bout between Rose Namajunas, and Angela Hill, and then it was time for the main card.
The main card ended up being slightly lackluster to say the least. Julianna Pena picked up a key victory over Jessica Eye, and Ryan Bader shockingly dished out a one sided beating to returning former champion Rashad Evans in the co-main event.
However, the main event stole the show. Newly crowned light heavyweight champion, and former Olympian Daniel “DC” Cormier put his title on the line for the very first time against former title challenger, and Swedish superstar Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson.
Many may have expected it to be a solid fight, but the results blew the anticipation out of the water. The two men battled back and forth in a five-round bloody war that displayed each man’s grit, determination, and heart. When people look at the best of mixed martial arts (MMA), this fight is a fantastic example of just that.
Cormier ended up retaining his title via split decision, and putting the stamp on what turned out to be an amazing event.
