Four of his last five wins have come by knockout and he has won the knockout of the night in all of those fights. He has now won back to back fights and he is likely the next contender for the UFC middleweight title after Chris Weidman.
The submission of the night went to Jacare for his first round arm triangle choke win over Chris Camozzi. This was the UFC debut for Jacare, who came over from Strikeforce and he has now won four straight fights.
During his four fight winning streak, his last three wins have come in the first round and the last two have been by submission.
Martins and Larsen won the fight of the night bonus which Martins won the fight at the beginning of the third round by knockout. Larsen was likely up two rounds heading into the final round, but Martins landed a right hand that dropped his opponent and led to the end of the fight.
