UFC St. Louis Results
A broken arm beset an opportunity for Paige VanZant on Sunday night, as she would still find a way to go the distance against Jessica- Rose Clark on an emotional night in St. Louis.
Not only would VanZant battle through a fractured arm, but UFC legend Matt Hughes walked back into the octagon, for the first time since a horrific train accident in June of 2017, as the UFC honored him in his home town.
The main event saw Jeremy Stephens would find a way to land impactful shots on to the quicker Doo Ho Choi in the first round. As it turned to the second round, Choi landed a flush front kick early in the round, but Stephens shook it off and pressed forward, and found a way to land a big right hook to the ear that dropped Choi. Several blows later, including a right to the jaw which bounced Choi’s head off that mat, and the fight was over.
