UFC returned with UFC Vegas 19 today and the main event of the show saw Derrick Lewis getting a second-round stoppage win over Curtis Blaydes.

In the second round, it was Lewis' striking that beat the wrestling of Blaydes with an uppercut for the knock-out victory. It makes Lewis the UFC record leader for most wins by KO/TKO at 12.

"It felt like a dream. It just felt so weird afterward. It still doesn’t feel real. This was the most satisfying (win of my career)... Never bet against me. People should have learned that years ago. I could be a huge underdog, but don’t ever underestimate me. No matter how much time’s left on the clock. I’m still going to shine,” Lewis said after the win.

The Co-Main Event, women’s bantamweights #6 Ketlen Vieira, and #7 Yana Kunitskaya put on a wild back-and-forth three rounds that were replete with grappling. The judges placed higher importance on Kunitskaya's ground and pound activity and gave her the unanimous decision on the scorecards.

"Every fight is important for me. Every fight feels like the biggest win. If you look at how high she was ranked, and before everyone thought she could be champion, I feel proud of myself. I feel like I’m physically and technically prepared for anyone, but I always have a mindset issue. I’m proud of myself and my team for putting me in the right place. I feel so good that I won this fight in my head,” Kunitskaya noted after the win.

Charles Rosa and Darrick Minner delivered an exciting featherweight bout that started off withstand and bang and progressed to scrambles on the ground. Minner dominated in top control in the second and third rounds, while Rosa looked for submission attempts from the bottom. Minner earned the unanimous decision on the scorecards.

In a definitive striker versus grappler match, prospect Chris Daukaus punched through the shoots of veteran #10 ranked Aleksei Oleinik to get the TKO in just 1:55 seconds of the first round.

In a battle of middleweight prospects, Dana White's Contender Series veteran Phil Hawes put on a grinding three rounds against Nassourdine Imavov. Imavov came back strong with striking at the end of the fight, but it wasn't enough, and Hawes got the majority decision win.

In the main card's opening bout, rising prospect Tom Aspinall brought punches in bunches to former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski, but his second-round victory came via submission after Aspinall took down the legend and was able to get Arlovski to tap to a rear-naked choke.
