UFC 202 was last night and everyone is still talking about Conor McGregor levelling up his in his rivalry with Nate Diaz by taking a majority decision win after five exceptional rounds of action.

However, the rest of the card on the pay-per-view was absolutely superb as well, with all of the matches delivering to make UFC 202 one of the best PPV's in recent MMA memory.

And it was Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson who really stole the show with a stunning finish to his fight against Glover Teixeira.

The UFC's light heavyweight division has been thrown into complete chaos by the Jon Jones failed drugs test, and with Bones' situation still not cleared up, the title contendership is still up in the air.

And last night Anthony Johnson took full advantage, absolutely destroying Glover Teixeira's face to set up a likely title fight with Daniel Cormier.

It took Rumble just 13 seconds to elevate himself into the title picture, turning Teixeira's chin into rubble with one savage right-hand uppercut that caused the referee to dive in as soon as the Brazilian hit the ground.

Watch the KO here and sit in awe of Rumble's striking ability...

That was the first time that Glover has been knocked out since 2002. Seriously. 14 years. That punch must have been insanely powerful.

The 32-year-old Johnson is now 22-5 for his career, with 16 of those wins coming by KO. Daniel Cormier is going to have to negate Rumble's power if he wants to remain UFC light heavyweight champion.
