With a main event featuring Irish treasure Conor McGregor and American Chad Mendes fighting for the interim featherweight title Saturday night, UFC Fight Night 189 reached mainstream levels of hype before it even started. But with the spotlight on the Mixed Martial Arts organization, the five main card fights delivered, each seemingly more exciting and gory than the next.
All five fights finished with clear-cut results, eliminating the doubt that typically comes with decisions. Two of the bouts ended with a flying-knee knockout. The bouts were so intense that several fighters had to go to the hospital afterwards. All of this led to a strong consensus that his was the best main card UFC has ever produced.
