The emotions were high tonight in Las Vegas as Ronda Rousey returned to the cage for the first time in over a year. As well as, emotionally low as long time favorite Mike Goldberg hung up the headset for the final time.
Let’s get right to it and break down the action from tonight’s main card!
Fight – (C) Amanda Nunes vs Ronda Rousey
Result – Nunes by TKO in 48 seconds.

Fight – (C) Dominck Cruz vs Cody Garbrandt

Result – Borg wins by Unanimous Decision.
Recap – Borg looked great, scoring heavily in all three rounds.
Fight – Johny Hendricks vs Neil Magny
