UFC 211 Results: Stipe Miocic Knocks Out JDS, Joanna Champion Dominates

After months of mediocrity, the UFC finally delivered with UFC 211. It was a stacked card to begin with, punctuated by two title fights and an undercard full of fights that will lead to title shots, and the best part was that they delivered. Check out all of the highlights worth watching below.

Main Card

Stipe Miocic def. Junior dos Santos via KO (round 1)

The heavyweight title is defended once again by Miocic as he avenged his loss against JDS. Check out the heavyweight KO here.

Joanna Jędrzejczyk def. Jéssica Andrade via unanimous decision.

It was another brilliant fight from Joanna Champion, who outstruck her former training partner by a massive amount. Check out the highlights.

Demian Maia def. Jorge Masvidal via split-decision

Demian Maia came into UFC 211 on a six-fight winning streak with his eyes on a title fight that he’s been passed over for multiple times. With a solid win (that wasn’t as close in my eyes as a split-decision suggests), he has to be next for Woodley, right? Or will Woodley keep ducking Maia because of his “boring” style?

Frankie Edgar def. Yair Rodríguez via doctor’s stoppage

This was a dominating performance by Frankie Edgar, who once again established himself as the best featherweight not named Jose Aldo. The big story, however, was Yair Rodriguez’s ridiculously destroyed eye. Look here, if you want.

Dave Branch def. Krzysztof Jotko via split-decision

FX Prelims

Eddie Alvarez vs. Dustin Poirier ended in a no-contest after a brilliant back and forth battle. Check out the controversial finish here.

-Jason Knight def. Chas Skelly via TKO (round 3)

-Chase Sherman def. Rashad Coulter via KO (round 2)

This fight was absolutely ridiculous and probably should’ve been stopped way sooner…

-James Vick def. Marco Polo Reyes via TKO (round 1)
