Ronda Rousey was expected to defeat Alexis Davis in the first round. The fight lasted 16 seconds before the referee called it. The question on everyone's mind—can anyone stop her?

The final fight of the night was Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida. Weidman was coming off two wins over the legendary Anderson Silva, but many wondered if the fluky nature of those wins meant that Weidman's supremacy was undeserved. He silenced the doubters loud and clear.

Weidman looked cool and calm early, landing plenty of strikes and opening up Machida's face. Ultimately, he would win by unanimous decision.
