UFC on FOX 15 had every MMA fans attention this past Saturday. Four big time fights highlighted the main card, and boy did they deliver. Women’s Strawweight prospect Paige VanZant kept her hype train going with a dominate unanimous decision win over Felice Herrig. Another young fighter, Featherweight Max Holloway, added another victory to his win streak after defeating Cub Swanson via guillotine at 3:58 of round 3. Middleweight Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza made quick work of late replacement Chris Camozzi with an armbar at 2:33 of round 1. And in the main event Middleweight Luke Rockhold earned the biggest win of his career. Rockhold defeated former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida by way of rear naked choke at 2:31 of round 2. Rockhold’s next fight will most likely be against the winner of Vitor Belfort and Chris Weidman for the Middleweight title.

The co-main event will mark the return of Anthony “Showtime” Pettis as he faces off against Myles Jury. Finally, Jessica Eye and Miesha Tate will fight in a Women’s Bantamweight contender fight.
