UFC Fight Night 30 results recap: Lyoto Machida vs. Mark Munoz event wrap up from England

Let's wrap up UFC Fight Night 30: "Machida vs. Munoz" from this past weekend, shall we?

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

UFC Fight Night 30: "Machida vs. Munoz" blew the roof off the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, England, on Sat., Oct. 26, 2013, featuring a main event of Lyoto Machida enthusiastically announcing his arrival in the middleweight division with a stunning first round head kick knockout of Mark Munoz.

The co-headlining attraction was mired in controversy, as Melvin Guillard landed an illegal knee to a downed Ross Pearson that was deemed accidental and therefore ruled a "No Contest" when it was determined Pearson's was too hurt (cut) to continue.

The other main card bouts saw Jimi Manuwa TKO Ryan Jimmo with some help from a weird injury, Norman Parke decision Jon Tuck with relative ease, Nicholas Musoke impress with a first round submission over Alessio Sakara in his Octagon debut, and John Lineker punch Phil Harris' chest in.

In cased you missed any or all of it -- or just want to keep the discussion alive -- below are links to all the major storylines borne from Saturday's event in England.
