Elsewhere on the card, Jan Blachowicz claimed the 205-pound title vacated by Jon Jones thanks to an impressive knockout victory over light heavyweight mainstay Dominick Reyes. In addition, flyweight phenom Brandon Royval submitted Kai Kara-France while Ketlen Vieira turned away bantamweight bruiser Sijara Eubanks.
