UFC on ESPN 2 went down from the Wells Fargo Center earlier tonight (Sat., March 30, 2019) in Philadelphia.

In a light heavyweight clash on the main card, Paul Craig met Kennedy Nzechukwu inside the Octagon. The fight found its way into the third round, where Craig was able to sink in a triangle choke while Nzechukwu was attacking from the top. The finish earned Craig a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus.

A new contender has emerged at middleweight. Jack Hermansson made quick work of former World Series Of Fighting (WSOF) “champ champ” David Branch. After getting the fight to the ground, Hermansson locked in a guillotine choke, submitting the Renzo Gracie Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. He’ll also earn a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus.

And finally, in the main event of the evening, Justin Gaethje met fellow dynamic striker Edson Barboza. Both men hit each other with some hard shots, but it was a massive hook from Gaethje as Barboza was backing away that ended the night. Both men will take home $50,000 “Fight of the Night” awards.
