The main event was a good one, as Jared Cannonier outlasted Kelvin Gastelum in what was a fun and close fight. Cannonier’s volume, power and striking defense proved to be the difference. Gastelum faired well though, but he was dropped in round three and just couldn’t land often on the elusive Cannonier over the five rounds. Cannonier improved to 4-1 in the Middleweight division, and seemingly has aligned himself in a title fight against the winner of Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker. Of course, nothing is guaranteed and another fight might be in order before fighting for UFC gold.
