Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Let's wrap up UFC on Fox 9: "Johnson vs. Benavidez 2" from this past weekend, shall we?

UFC on Fox 9: "Johnson vs. Benavidez 2" blew the roof off the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California, this past Sat., Dec. 14, 2013, featuring a main event of Demetrious Johnson knocking out Joseph Benavidez with one punch in the very first round.

Second verse same as the first.

The co-headlining attraction saw Urijah Faber turn in an awesome performance in a second round submission victory over Michael McDonald. The win was good enough to earn him another bantamweight title shot sometime down the line.

The other two main card bouts saw Chad Mendes fight through sickness to earn a unanimous decision over Nik Lentz and Joe Lauzon grapple his way past Mac Danzig in the main card opener.
