New, 4 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White is tying a ribbing on another pay-per-view (PPV) event, as UFC 203 took place last night (Sat., Sept. 10, 2016) from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio

Headlining the event was a Heavyweight title fight that saw Stipe Miocic hang on to his strap by knocking out Alistair Ovreem via vicious ground-and-pound.

See it here.

Also, Fabricio Werdum took it to Travis Browne one more time in a bizarre co-main event, while CM Punk made his much-anticipated Octagon debut against Mickey Gall.

White spoke to FOX Sports after the fight to recap the event, and talk about Punk living up to his promise and actually going through with his MMA bout, despite many counting him out.

"Yeah. he trained for almost two years and he came in here and he did it, you know? His speech at the end was awesome. He's a great guy and I have a lot of respect for him. He did it, we'll see what happens (next)."

Punk went on to lose to Gall in the very first round via rear-naked choke (see it again here).
