UFC Fight Night 56 is now in the books.

Ovince St-Preux capped off the show in style, blasting Mauricio Rua early on in their main event tussle, ending the legend's night within the opening minute of Round 1. That stands as OSP's signature win, and could be a jumping off point for a title run.

The co-main event of the evening was characterized by a controversial decision that favored Brazilian fighter Warlley Alves. He seemed destined for defeat after the fight's 15 minuted had expired, but was awarded the win over Alan Jouban on all three scorecards.
