UFC Fight Night 80 came from The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, where strawweight Paige VanZant and Rose Namajunas collided in a five-round main event.

UFC Fight Night 80

It was to be a very dominant Rose Nanajunas who came away with the well-deserved win in the fifth round after several submission attempts throughout the fight.  It was however the first time we got to see Paige VanZant bloodied up but whom also showed why she should be in there in the first place.  VanZant to her credit survived many submission attempts from a dominant Namajunas through the five rounds until she was caught in rear naked choke and finally had to tap.

The co-main event saw Michael Chiesa take the win over Jim Miller in a lightweight bout, while lightweight newcomer Sage Northcutt dispatched Cody Pfister via a guillotine early on in the second round. 

UK’s Danny ‘Hot Chocolate’ showed why he belongs in the UFC after his 2 min 26 second first round win over Nathan Coy.
