UFC Fight Night 105: Lewis vs. Browne Gate and Attendance from Canada

The Ultimate Fighting Championship released the attendance and gate numbers stemming from UFC Fight Night Halifax following Sunday’s event in Canda. 

8.123 spectators attended the event at the Scotiabank Centre generating gate receipts totaling $783,825 (CAD) / $575,832 (USD). It was the organization’s first trip to Canada in 2017.

Those in attendance witnessed Derrick Lewis continue to climb the heavyweight rankings with his second-round knockout of ninth-ranked Travis Browne in the fight card’s main event. The bout earned Fight of the Night honors.

Browne had Lewis hurt several times in the opening round with kicks to the body. Lewis proved that he’s always just one shot away from changing the course of a fight when he dropped Browne with a left hook in the early moments of the second frame. He later knocked Browne down with a right hand and finished him on the ground with a series of unanswered punches.

Former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks made his middleweight debut in the fight card’s co-main event after struggling to continue to make the cut to 170-pounds.  “Bigg Rigg” looked to have more stamina and movement than he did as a welterweight during his decision win over Hector Lombard.  The win snapped a three-fight losing streak for Hendricks. 

The 11-fight card featured six decisions, three knockouts, and two submission finishes.

What’s Next for Derrick Lewis?

Derrick Lewis continued his meteoric rise up the heavyweight ranks on Sunday night with a knockout of Travis Browne in the UFC Fight Night 105 main event in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was the fifth knockout of his current six-fight winning streak.

So what’s next?

“I just want to clear my head a little bit,” Lewis said during the FS1 Post-Fight Show. “I just want some time off. Just relax my mind.”

It’s not that he hasn’t already thought ahead to his next fight, however, as Lewis was quick to answer when questioned about whom he would like to fight next, wanting another fighter that he knows will throw down with him.

“Mark Hunt … Mark Hunt gonna come out and fight. He’s just like me. He’s gonna come out and fight. Ain’t gonna be a boring fight. He ain’t gonna try and hold you or nothing like that. He’s just gonna come out swinging and banging. Just like I do.”

Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Knocks Out Josh Thomson; Josh Koscheck KO’d in Debut (Bellator 172 Results)

Patricky “Pitbull” Freire demolished Josh “The Punk” Thomson with a forearm uppercut in the second round to earn the biggest victory of his career on Saturday in San Jose, Calif.

Thomson never had a chance in the fight. Although he came out sharp, giving Freire several looks and throwing a few leg kicks, he was not able to withstand Freire’s pressure and punches. Freire knocked Thomson down in the first round with an overhand right. Thomson scrambled to survive, but never quite recovered.

The two collided heads in the second round, which seemed to daze Thomson, who had not fought since December 2015. He fell to the mat quickly and then was rocked with a wicked uppercut. Freire finished him with a right hand while Thomson was out on the mat.

Freire is now in line for a lightweight title shot against champion Michael Chandler.

The lightweight fight was pushed up to the main event slot after the original main event of Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione was scrapped. Mitrione had kidney stone pain and could compete.

The official result saw Freire defeat Thomson via KO, Round 2, 0:40. 

Cheick Kongo def. Oli Thompson via unanimous decision in their main card fight. Kongo dominated Thompson with right hands and wicked knees in the first round, en route to the unanimous decision victory. The fight saw Kongo essentially laying on top of him for much of the 15-minute contest, pounding him relentlessly with shots. Kongo’s punches weren’t strong enough to finish Thompson though. Both fighters gassed halfway Through round 2. Thompson figured out a way to survive from his guard, but never threatened Kongo.

Anatoly Tokov defeated Francisco France via TKO in their bout. After a controversial kick to the crotch, Tokov defeated France via at 2:24 in Round 2 after a series of punches. Tokov pulled off the victory after he was controlled in the first round on the ground. France fell to his back and tried to lure Tokov to the mat again in the second round, but Tokov instead kicked him between the legs. The fight was stopped temporarily because of the low blow, but when they stood up Tokov finished him with right hands, including a final punch that bounced France’s head off the mat.

Veta Arteaga defeated Brooke Mayo via TKO in Round 3 in an exciting, competitive fight. The cageside doctor stopped the fight after Mayo’s left eye blew up like a balloon. Mayo yelled repeatedly “I can see,” but the fight was still stopped. Mayo nearly finished Arteaga in the first round with a rear-naked choke, but Arteaga proved far too scrappy. Arteaga had superior power and hit Mayo with a right hand that led to the swelling and the stoppage.

In early action, Mauricio Alonso wrecked former UFC fighter Josh Koscheck with a series of right hands at 4:42 of Round 1. Koscheck never got out of first gear. He looked tentative and slow, while Alonso pushed the action and showed more aggression. The loss comes in Koscheck’s Bellator debut.
