Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to Sacramento, California last night (Dec. 14, 2014) with UFC on Fox 9: "Johnson vs. Benavidez 2" live from the Sleep Train Arena. The night featured a main event rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez for Johnson's UFC Flyweight title.
However, the main card kicked off with a lightweight scrap between Joe Lauzon and former Ultimate Fighter winner Mac Danzig. The bout had "Fight of the Night" written all over it when it was booked, with Lauzon being no stranger to collection those "of the Night" checks.
While they failed to collect a bonus check at the end of the night, it was an exciting scrap that saw Lauzon dominate Danzig and bloody him up in the third. Danzig was able to do some decent work off his back but it wasn't enough to stop Lauzon's onslaught.
Lauzon took home the Unanimous Decision victory with all three judges scoring the bout 30-27.
