UFC 211 took place on May 13th from American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. In the Main Event, Stipe Miocic retained his Heavyweight Title dominating Junior Dos Santos with a first round finish. Miocic landed punches as Dos Santos couldn’t seem to get much off before Miocic dropped and finished him. In the Co-Main Event, Strawweight Champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk retained her title dominating challenger Jessica Andrade. For five rounds Jedrzejczyk landed leg kicks and jabs at will as Andrade couldn’t seem to close the distance and land much of anything. In earlier women’s action Cortney Casey picked up a win over Jessica Aguilar winning a decision using effective striking including landing multiple up kicks.
