The UFC came live from Manila today, where it certainly did not disappoint and had a very emotional farewell to one of the sports most beloved fighters after winning his retirement fight.

In the main event Frankie Edgar literally answered everyone’s ‘answers’ in which he won every single round on the judges scorecards to clearly win over a tough opponent in ‘The california Kid’ Urijah Faber.

The co-main event went as much predicted (in my opinion) ,again, the judges scored every single round to Gegard Mousasi, for which he was tasked with the not so easy Costas Philippou.
