As if this weekend wasn’t busy enough, UFC and Bellator had Friday Night fights and UFC delivered some awesome finishes on their Fight Night 50: Jacare vs Mousasi 2 line up.
Starting off slow with the prelims, the first three fights went to decisions but picked up the pace quickly as the rest of the card delivered some brutal finishes and fast paced action.
Joe Lauzon earned Fight of the Night honors in his fight with Michael Chiesa while Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Ben Rothwell both took home performance of the night honors with their wins.
Jacare’s forced the always tough Mousasi to tap via guillotine in the third frame while Rothwell went toe to toe in an all out slugfest with Alistair Overeem and came out victorious after he dropped the Dutchman in the first round forcing the ref to step in and stop the fight.
Full results after the jump.
