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.
Rani Yahya defeated Henry Briones via kimura to record his 18th submission victory in 24 wins.
