UFC Fight Night 106 took place March 11th from the Northeast Olympica Training Center in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. In the night’s Main Event, Kelvin Gastelum scored a first round TKO over Vitor Belfort in what could be the end of the road for Belfort. Gastelum dropped him early but Belfort was able to recover and get back up. Shortly after he dropped him again and the ref had enough. In the Co-Main Event, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua showed he still has something left finishing Gian Villante in the third. The first two rounds were close with both landing hard shots, till Rua finished him early in the third. In women’s action Bethe Correia and Marion Reneau fought to a draw. Rounds one and two were close with each landing some good shots and Correia perhaps winning on takedowns. In round three Reneau turned it up and seemed on the verge of stopping her making in a two point round. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
