On Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, one of the best events in UFC history went down. The UFC 189 main card featured a knockout of the year contender, three fight of the year candidates, one of the best fights of all-time and the crowning of a new champion.
Everyone has been able to see what Conor McGregor has done on his way to the top, but the co-main event was the real highlight of the night.
Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler went toe-to-toe with No. 1 contender Rory MacDonald for four rounds in a bloody affair. In the final round of the night, Lawler landed the devastating punch to retain his title.
It was an instant classic and one fight that left people saying it was the best scrap they have ever seen.
After the fight, Lawler and MacDonald were transported to the hospital and an epic photo has surfaced of the two men celebrating their win.
That is one of the great things about MMA. No matter what happens in the cage, there is always respect afterwards.
