Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

UFC on Fox 7 took place April 20 from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. In the main event, UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson successfully defended his title, earning a split decision over top-ranked Gilbert Melendez.

The co-main event featured the much anticipated UFC debut of Daniel Cormier. Cormier, an Olympic wrestler, used his strength advantage to earn a unanimous decision win over former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

The card was full of knockouts, eight to be exact, tying the UFC record  for most KOs on a single fight card.
