There has been some trash talk on social medias between UFC Lightweighters Khabib Nurmagomedov (22-0) and Nate Diaz (17-10) in the past, and that sparked a big brawl during the WSOF 22 event. The Russian got in a fight also with big brother Nick (26-10) who threw a beer bottle at him. Khabib came to the show to support his younger brother Abubakar (10-1) who successfully debuted with the promotion, while the Diaz brothers came to support Jake Shields (31-8) who lost a title fight that night. It all started when "The Eagle" was approached by the younger brother, but who threw the first shot still isn't clear. The fight continued outside with chairs flying around. Watch the video below.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - At UFC 190's main event Bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey came at Bethe Correia with a series of punches and constant pressure from the start. The Challenger tried to fire back, but it didn't bother the American who also effectively used dirty boxing. Correia forced to clinch and Rousey punished her with a hard knee to the mid-section followed with several more precise punches, "Pitbulll" fell with her face to the floor losing the match in only 34 seconds.
In the co-main event Mauricio Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira started the fight, unlike back under PRIDE, staying away from exchanges. However once Nogueira connected with a good punch at the second half of the first round clearly hurting "Shogun" he wanted to finish him with a barrage of strikes, but Rua survived and even managed to throw some punches back. In the second round Rua took the fight to the ground, but Nogueira defended smart and escaped after a couple of minutes where the PRIDE legends continued to trade strikes. In the last round "Shogun" wanted to grapple, "Lil Nog" knew and defended himself, but in the last minute Rua got a takedown at the fence and was almost submitted by his opponent via guillotine. At the end the judges scored (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) for Rua.
