Headlining the event is a featherweight bout between a pair of ranked contenders in Calvin Kattar (23-5) and Josh Emmett (17-2), and co-headlining is a welterweight showcase between Kevin Holland and Tim Means, as Donald Cerrone versus Joe Lauzon fell through on fight day for the second time in a row this spring.
Our preliminary co-main event of the evening came in the welterweight division between The Ultimate Fighter 11 winner Court McGee and former CES welterweight champion Jeremiah Wells.

Official Result: Jeremiah Wells def. Court McGee at 1:34 of round one
McGee comes out looking to maintain the distance, while Wells throws some heavy, but reckless punches in attempt to get inside the range of the former middleweight.
McGee is able to evade these strikes, but Wells throws another combination and catches McGee with the left hook at the end of it, putting the former TUF winners lights out immediately.
Wells improves to 11-2-1 with the biggest victory of his entire career, winning his last five-straight (all finishes), and he’s now 3-0 inside the octagon. McGee was in search of his third-straight victory tonight following a three-fight skid. He’s now 2-4 in his last six and 3-6 in his last nine.
We’ve been given five knockouts through the first six fights tonight at UFC on ESPN 37, just wow! What a night.

I became a fan of combat sports when I was 12 years old. I was scrolling through the channels and landed upon versus, where WEC was televised. Urijah Faber fought Jens Pulver for the second time that night. That’s the first fight I saw, and the fight that got me hooked on the sport. Since then, the sport has grown so rapidly, and my goal is to enlighten everyone on what’s going on in the sport today.
