The highly anticipated lightweight main event proved to be a short-lived affair. Bobby Green connected with a straight left early in the opening round which sent Grant Dawson crashing to the Octagon canvas. From there, ‘King’ proceeded to unload some heavy ground and pound which forced the referee to step in and stop the contest.

UFC Vegas 80 was co-headlined by a middleweight bout featuring Joe Pyfer taking on Abdul Razak Alhassan. The bout resulted in a second-round submission victory for the Philadelphia native, as Pyfer put Alhassan too sleep with an arm triangle choke.

Following the conclusion of tonight’s event, UFC officials announced at the post-fight press conference that four fighters would be taking home performance bonuses.
