On Saturday night, UFC 228 threw up a number of interesting results.

The main event of September's PPV saw welterweight championship Tyron Woodley and Darren Till go head-to-head in the cage. 


It's been clear over recent months that Dana White and the UFC aren't exactly happy with Woodley as their champ - considering how vocal the president has been about a couple of his fights.

Unfortunately for him, the bout didn't go the challenger's way - and "The Chosen One" defended the belt after locking in his D'Arce choke submission. 

It will certainly be exciting to see where UFC go next - especially considering how jammed it is at the top of the welterweight division.

Will Kamaru Usman or Colby Covington be next in line for a shot? Or will someone like Santiago Ponzinibbio stake their claim for the title?


Woodley vs Till wasn't the only big match on the UFC 228 card. In the co-main event, Jessica Andrade took on Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the Women's Strawweight division. 

And that fight certainly didn't disappoint.

It was Andrade who came away with the win after a first-round knockout, and she's now undefeated in three bouts. 

Following the fight, the Brazilian addressed White ringside - claiming that she should be next in line for a shot at Rose Namajunas' Strawweight Championship.

And it's hard to argue with her because what's even more impressive than her current winning record, is how she knocked out Kowalkiewicz on Saturday night.

After backing up her opponent against the cage early on, Andrade rode a couple of the Pole's early shots, before landing one huge overhand right punch to knock Kowalkiewicz to the floor. 

No ground and pound was needed, as the referee quickly stepped in to call an end to the fight. That's all it took - as "Bate Estaca" walked away victorious via a one-punch KO. 

Very impressive. Check out the brutal shot that won the bout below. 

Damn. After witnessing that cageside, White surely has no choice but to put Andrade into a title fight with Namajunas.
