UFC 201 unfolded last night (Sat., July 30, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., featuring the highly-anticipated Welterweight clash between current champion Robbie Lawler and teammate Tyron Woodley. But before the headlining bout went down, UFC 201's main card offered a plethora of memorable action.
In a Welterweight warm up to the main event, "The Immortal" Matt Brown stepped inside the Octagon opposite a desperate Jake Ellenberger, who hoped a move to Kings MMA would rejuvenate his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. Well, "The Juggernaut" did just that after not only sending Brown to the canvas with a powerful overhand right once the fight started, but finishing him with a nasty liver kick to capture a memorable technical knockout win.

This victory certainly helps Ellenberger secure a future in UFC, especially considering he became the first fighter to finish Brown via strikes. If Ellenberger can maintain his newly found ferocity there's no telling how far he can take his second chance.
