UFC Fight Night 118 took place October 21st from The Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. In the Main Event, Darren Till scored a huge win over Donald Cerrone to remain undefeated. Right out of the gate the tone was set as Till was aggressive landing strikes that Cerrone seemed to have no answer for until Till dropped and stopped him. In women’s action Aspen Ladd made her UFC debut a success scoring a second round stoppage of Lina Lansberg. Lansberg took round one, controlling the clinch but round two was all Ladd as she took her down and landed strikes for the finish. Also, Karolina Kowalkiewicz made the Poland fans happy with a decisive decision victory of Jodie Esquibel. Esquibel was game but Kowalkiewicz displayed her superior striking winning all three rounds.
