UFC Utica Results: Moraes Drops Rivera In 30 Seconds

Tonight from the Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, New York, the UFC returned to Fox Sports 1 with UFC Utica.
The event is headlined by Jimmie Rivera and Marlon Moraes in a bantamweight contest, with Gregor Gillespie and Vinc Pichel in a lightweight contest in the co-main event.

Moraes would make it a quick night, as he becomes the presumptive number one contender for the banatamweight title in a 33 second stoppage win on Saturday morning.
