Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently wrapped its UFC on FOX 25: "Weidman vs. Gastelum" mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza, which took place last Sat. night (July 22, 2017) inside NYCB Live in Uniondale, New York.

UFC on FOX 25 was headlined by the middleweight showdown pitting former division champion Chris Weidman against streaking welterweight import Kelvin Gastelum. “All American” snapped a three-fight losing streak by choking out The Ultimate Fighting (TUF) 17 champ.

In the UFC on FOX 25 co-headliner, top bantamweight contender Jimmie Rivera proved that not only can he take out established veterans like Urijah Faber, he can also dispose of dangerous up-and-comers like division standout Thomas Almeida.

It was a meaningful night of fights.
