UFC 211: Live event recap and highlights



They say everything is bigger in Texas and the UFC brought a suitably huge fight card to Dallas for UFC 211 on Saturday night.

The stellar lineup was headed by a battle for the undisputed UFC heavyweight championship of the world, as champion Stipe Miocic registered back-to-back title defences with a first-round TKO victory over challenger, and former world champ, Junior dos Santos.

It was also a good night for UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who cruised to a shutout decision win over the exceptionally-game Jessica Andrade.
