UFC 288 finishes

UFC 288 went down on Saturday night. In the main event Aljamain Sterling defended his UFC bantamweight title against former champ Henry Cejudo. There was no stoppage there (or in the co-main), but further down the card we had some finishes.

The most newsworthy of all of those UFC 288 finishes was Yan Xiaonan knocking former UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade out cold.

Rodtang & ONE Fight Night 10 finishes

On Friday night ONE Championship was in Denver, CO. The fans in mile high city were able to see Demetrious Johnson defend his bantamweight title against Adriano Moraes in their trilogy fight. That was a unanimous decision, but there were some sick finishes elsewhere on the event.

At ONE Fight Night 10 ‘Super’ Sage Northcutt returned and got a win with a heel hook. There was also a sweet body kick KO for Stamp Fairtex.

Roy Nelson wins at Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA

Jorge Masvidal’s bareknuckle MMA promotion put on a show in Florida on Friday. The headliner was former TUF champ and UFC/Bellator veteran Roy Nelson. He went out there and did what we thought he would, KO Dillon Cleckler.

RIZIN finishes

Flying knees, Von Flue Chokes and Leg kick KOs, oh my!
