UFC 194 results, recap, and link wrap up: Conor McGregor and Luke Rockhold steal the show

New, comments

What a crazy weekend.

In fact, all of last week was chaos, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fired off back-to-back-to-back mixed martial arts (MMA) events from Dec. 10-12, all in Las Vegas, Nevada. We started with UFC Fight Night 80 and the fall of Paige VanZant, then watched the continued rise of Frankie Edgar at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 22 Finale.

Then came UFC 194.

The "Aldo vs. McGregor" pay-per-view (PPV) event crowned a new middleweight champion in Luke Rockhold, as well as a new middleweight No. 1 contender in Yoel Romero. The big story, however, was Conor McGregor's first-round knockout of Jose Aldo.

Madness.

Now that we've had a few days (and a few hundred posts) to digest, let's take a look back and hit all of the major stories from this past weekend of combat sports. Play-by-play, video highlights, recaps, reactions, and much more all in one convenient wrap-up.

That should just about cover it.

But don't get too comfy. We have a major UFC event this weekend (Sat., Dec. 19, 2015) as UFC on FOX 17: "Dos Anjos vs. Cerrone 2" lights up the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, featuring a lightweight title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone.
