This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Vegas 19

UFC Vegas 19 went down on Saturday night in the APEX Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, Derrick Lewis knocked Curtis Blaydes out cold with a vicious uppercut in the second round of their top five heavyweight contest.

Despite spending much of the fight on her back, Yana Kunitskaya stayed busier and inflicted a lot more damage to earn a hard fought unanimous decision win against Ketlen Vieira in the co-main event.

Elsewhere on the UFC Vegas 19 main card, Darrick Minner defeated Charles Rosa via unanimous decision with an impressive performance, Chris Daukaus needed less than two minutes to finish Aleksei Oleinik, Phil Hawes edged out Nassourdine Imavov, and Tom Aspinall scored the biggest win of his career to date by submitting former champion Andrei Arlovski in the second round.
