UFC 152 took place on Saturday, September 22 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The fight card saw more than half of the fights end with the underdogs walking away with victories, including two of the three “Fight Night” bonus winners.
The bonus winners, T.J. Grant for “Fight of the Night” and Cub Swanson for “Knockout of the Night” had some pretty heavy odds stacked against them going into UFC 152. Other underdogs that prevailed were Kyle Noke, Mitch Gagnon, Marcus Brimage, Sean Pierson, Vinny Magalhaes and the newly crowned flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.
The evening’s main event also looked very close to resulting in an upset when Vitor Belfort worked an armbar on Jon Jones early in the first round of their bout. Jones would shake free and go on to dominate the rest of the fight en route to a fourth round submission victory.
