A lot of us thought that UFC 170 was one of the more underwhelming cards that we’d seen in some time. Hell, I felt like it was barely even advertised, as I didn’t spend at least a cumulative hour each day complaining about the song selection for the PPV’s commercial. Whether or not the mainstream UFC fans agreed with our HOT TAEKS will be seen when the numbers are released, but I think most of us will agree that UFC 170 ended up being a pretty good event, especially with four of the five main card fights ending with TKOs.

So what about those UFC 170 results? And what about the most important one, Ronda Rousey vs. Sara McMann? Billed as the first time that two Olympic medalists met in the octagon, McMann was supposed to be the first real threat to Rousey’s perfect record. Was she? Spoilers and UFC 170 results ahead.

Women’s Bantamweight Championship – Main Event
Ronda Rousey def. Sara McMann (TKO, Round 1)

Haha, nope. A knee to the liver ended this one quicker than any fight on the entire card. But hey, at least McMann can say she didn’t tap to the arm bar.

Light Heavyweight – Co-Main Event
Daniel Cormier def. Patrick Cummins (TKO, Round 1)

This fight was a sham and a scam and a flim flam and a “Wham bam, thank you, ma’am.” Cummins had no business being in the octagon with Cormier, and the latter proved why. If anything, Cummins has
earned a few more fights for being a good sport.
