Excitement filled the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, as UFC Fight Night unfolded with a series of thrilling moments, unexpected victories, and significant shifts in the rankings. The event, held on Sunday, December 3, was broadcast live in Asia, featuring a main event that left fans on the edge of their seats.

In the highly anticipated main event clash between lightweight contenders, #4 Beneil Dariush and #8 Arman Tsarukyan, the outcome exceeded all expectations.

Arman Tsarukyan gets the huge win

The fight did not last long, with Tsarukyan delivering a devastating knee and a powerful right punch, causing Dariush to be knocked out in just over a minute. Tsarukyan's remarkable performance has catapulted him into the title picture, as he expressed his intentions after the fight, saying, "For sure I was expecting a knockout... Hopefully, the next fight will be for the title. I'm going to be the champion, trust me, guys."

Jalin Turner outclasses Bobby Green

In the co-main event, the #12 lightweight contender, Jalin Turner, defended his ranking in an impromptu bout against #13 Bobby Green. Turner, displaying precision and patience, delivered sniping shots to an unfazed Green.

The fight took a decisive turn when Turner landed a powerful right hand that dropped and ultimately stopped Green in the first round. Turner commented on his victory, stating, "I delivered! That's what I do every time I step in here... Bobby was wobbled, but I've got to go until they pull me off, that's part of my job."

Adding to the excitement of the night, a bout on the prelims stole the spotlight and earned the "Fight of the Night" honors. Rodolfo Bellato faced off against Ihor Potieria in a contest that showcased the intensity and skill of both fighters.
