UFC Vegas 56 Results
UFC Vegas 56 results are in. The main event of the night was headlined by Alexander Volkov vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik, both in the top ten of the Heavyweight division. The co-main event was #10 Dan Ige vs #13 Mosvar Enloev in the Featherweight division.
The winner of the night was Volkov, and not just for the best back tattoo in MMA, also for an impressive first round knockout victory over the dangerous Rozenstruik. Here’s the Post-Fight Press Conference courtesy of the UFC:
Most of the nights fights didn’t make it to the judges. All in all, the card didn’t appear to stack up to a whole lot at first. A couple of fighters were having their UFC debuts, and the name recognition, for many, was not there. However, the fighters came out and proved all doubters wrong. Without further ado, here are the results:
