UFC Fight Night 62 is now in the books.

Demian Maia prevailed in the main event of the evening, grinding out a torturous decision win over Ryan LaFlare. The Brazilian submission specialist dominated the wrestling and grappling theaters of battle, controlling the action and maintaining dominant positioning throughout.

In the night’s co-main event Erick Silva defeated Josh Koscheck, in what was the original Ultimate Fighter villain’s fifth straight defeat. Whereas the win should propel Silva into a meaningful fight at 170, it could also mark the end of the road for Koscheck.
