I grabbed a word with my good friend and press row colleague from Canada, Danny Austin, as we took a look back at the events of UFC on FOX in Danny’s home city of Calgary.

The show was headlined by a battle of lightweight contenders as rising contender Dustin ‘The Diamond’ Poirier claimed a career-best win by stopping former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez.

Former UFC featherweight world champion Jose Aldo produced a brilliant display to come back from a tough start to stop hard-hitting Jeremy Stephens with a crushing body shot.

And another former world champion – ex-strawweight queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk – showed that she’s still better than almost everyone else in the division with a landslide decision victory over fellow contender Tecia Torres.
