UFC Fight Night 114 takes place at the Arena Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico, Saturday, Aug. 5. The main event features a pair of flyweights looking to climb the rankings as Sergio Pettis takes on Brandon Moreno at 125-pounds.
There have been seven first round finishes tonight, setting a UFC modern era record.
Yesterday Alexa Grasso missed the 116-pound limit for her strawweight fight against Randa Markos. Grasso was fined 20 percent of her fight purse but the fight would go on as scheduled. Grasso earned a decision victory in her home country in a very exciting fight.
Niko Price moves to 10-0-1, remaining undefeated after a first round TKO over Alan Jouban.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans met Sam Alvey in a middleweight bout. The fight wasn’t the most entertaining one on the card but Alvey was able to earn a split decision win over the former 205 pound champion. Where Rashad will go after this remains to be seen.
Dustin Ortiz put on a spectacular performance, knocking out Hector Sandoval. It was the fastest knockout in UFC flyweight history, just 15 seconds.
