New, comments

Let's wrap up all the action from UFC Fight Night 45 & 46 this past week.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) stayed busy this past week with two events: UFC Fight Night 45 invaded the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Wed., July 16, 2014, with a Fox Sports 1 broadcast rich with finishes while UFC Fight Night 46 blew the roof off The O2 in Dublin, Ireland, on Sat., July 19, 2014, with a Fight Pass showcase that continued the momentum.

Let's get you up to date on everything that went down.

Donald Cerrone promised he would come in and deliver a finish opposite the always game Jim Miller. Well, he did just that with a second round head kick knockout that has him in the discussion as a top contender at lightweight.
