UFC on FOX 27 results, recap, and link wrap up: Jacare creams Brunson, Fili spurns ‘Menace’

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to network television last weekend with the UFC on FOX 27: “Jacare vs Brunson 2” mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza, which took place last Sat. night (Jan. 27, 2018) inside Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

UFC on FOX 27 was headlined by the middleweight rematch between top contenders Ronaldo Souza and Derek Brunson, which “Jacare” won by first-round knockout (again). Elsewhere on the card, grizzled veteran Dennis Bermudez came up short in a super-close contest against venerable featherweight bruiser Andre Fili.

It was a meaningful night of fights.
