UFC on FOX 24 took place April 15th from The SPrint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. In the Main Event, Demetrious Johnson continued his claim for the possible best pound for pound fighter in the world with a successful defense of his Flyweight Title over Wilson Reis. Johnson used his speed to avoid Reis’s takedown attempts and strikes and landed at will before securing a third round armbar. In the Co-Main Event, Rose Namajunas got a huge win over Michelle Waterson. Namajunas had a good frist round and then exploded in round two landing a head kick that rocked Waterson before securing the choke. In earlier women’s action Ketlen Vieira got a decision win over Ashlee Evans-Smith in a good competitive bout. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
