Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicked off 2016 with a sensational pay-per-view event last Saturday night (Jan., 2, 2016) as UFC 195: “Lawler vs. Condit” delivered a thrilling evening of mixed martial arts (MMA) action at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In the main event, Robbie Lawler just barely retained his title via split decision over Carlos Condit in one of the best Welterweight title fights of all time (highlights here).

The co-main event featured Stipe Miocic taking on Andrei Arlovski in what many considered to be a No. 1 contender fight. It took a mere 54 seconds for Miocic to knockout the former UFC Heavyweight champ, and Dana White gave him a crack at UFC gold on the spot.
