After the greatness that was UFC 189, we turned to The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale on Sunday evening.

Welterweights Jake Ellenberger and Stephen Thompson faced off in the evening's main event. Thompson landed two spinning hook kicks to knock out Jake Ellenberger and announce himself as an elite welterweight. He may be in contender status sooner rather than later.

The Blackzilians claimed $300,000 when Kamaru Usman defeats Hayder Hassan via submission. All that and more went down on Sunday. Read on to find out how it went.
