JEREMY STEPHENS SECURED A HUGE win at UFC Orlando by knocking out Josh Emmett in the first round. Stephens survived an early knockdown and came back strongly to secure the win.

Ilir Latifi gave a strong performance against OSP and went home with a first-round submission victory via guillotine. Elsewhere, on the main card, Max Griffin managed to derail the momentum of Mike Perry via a unanimous decision win.
Brian Kelleher’s win over Renan Barao was the highlight of the undercard. The fight was an all-out brawl and Kelleher’s win added the upset factor as well.
