UFC Fight Night 73 is now in the books.

Glover Teixeira dominated Ovince St-Preux in the night's main event. The former title challenger overcame a brutal bodykick early in the fight, repeatedly put St-Preux on his back and finished with a submission in Round 3. The win puts Teixeira back on track to begin another run at the 205-pound title.

The co-main event between Beneil Dariush and Michael Johnson ended in a controversial decision favoring Dariush, who himself seemed surprised by the verdict. The win was his fifth straight, while Johnson, the unfortunate loser, saw his own four-fight win streak snapped.
