Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently wrapped its UFC 207: “Nunes vs. Rousey” pay-per-view (PPV) event, taking place last Friday night (Dec. 30, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Get full results here.

Some fighters experienced the highest of highs, like newly-crowned bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt. “No Love” knocked around Dominick Cruz for five rounds to capture the division crown (watch it). Others, however, were mired in the lowest of lows, like former women’s 135-pound titleholder Ronda Rousey. “Rowdy” is nearly out of the top five after suffering her second consecutive knockout loss (replay).

Then there’s the free-falling Johny Hendricks.
