UFC on FOX 23 results, recap, and link wrap up: ‘Bullet’ blasts her way into bantamweight title fight

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Shevchenko vs Pena Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

UFC on FOX 23 had a little something for everyone.

Epic knockouts, slick submissions, gritty, hard-fought decisions ... you name it, the "Shevchenko vs. Pena" mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza -- which took place last Sat. night (Jan. 28, 2017) inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado -- had it.

In the main event of the evening, Valentina Shevchenko punched her ticket to a women’s bantamweight title fight against division queenpin Amanda Nunes by submitting fellow top contender Julianna Pena.

And let's not forget about the big night for Jorge Masvidal and Francis Ngannou.

In case you missed any or all of last Saturday night's action, which featured "Prelims" on FOX and UFC Fight Pass, we've gone ahead and compiled all the relevant links for your perusal.

We're good like that.
