UFC Fight Night 51 is now in the books. 

Andrei Arlovski ended the show emphatically, knocking out Antonio Silva, gaining a measure of revenge for his defeat back in 2010. The win is his second straight since rejoining the ranks of the UFC and positions him for another meaningful bout next time out.

Gleison Tibau emerged victorious from a tiring and competitive co-main event that saw him outpoint Piotr Hallmann on two of three judge's scorecards. 

Beyond the winners of the night's two headliners, Jessica Andrade put in a big performance utterly dismantling top prospect Larissa Pacheco in under five minutes.
