Sunday September 6, 2015– UFC 191 took place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night. The main card aired on PPV and the prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight pass.
In the main event, Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson fought for the flyweight title. It was a fast paced fight and it’s what was expected from these two fighters. In all 5 rounds, Johnson’s lead right hand repeatedly hit Dodsons left eye a smart strategy from Johnson.
Dodson repeatedly defended Johnson’s takedowns, Johnson stopped but instead he picked up Dodson and slamming him to the mat on several occasions. Johnson defended his title for the seventh time with a unanimous decision win over Dodson.
“John Dodson was saying that I’m garbage, I’m boring, but look at my face.” Johnson continued to say, “I look prettier than a motherfucker, and that’s what technique gets your right there.”
In the co-main event, heavyweights Andrei Arlovski and Frank Mir will met in the center of the cage. It was a fight that fans have waited for. Both men were struggling to land clean shots, and the fight was mostly on the feet and kept each other in the clinch.
Mir did take Arlovski to the ground at one point but did little to no damage. At the end, both fighters were exhausted and the judges saw with surprise Arlovski wining by unanimous decision.
“I’m disappointed that it went three rounds, but it’s a victory – it’s good. I definitely underestimated him,” Arlovski said.
This is what Mir had to say about the judges’ decision:
“I thought I did what it took to win the fight,” he said. “I had the takedowns and I landed the shots. I did what it took – just look at his face.”
UFC President Dana White announced that the attendance that was 10, 873 with a $1,362,700 for a live gate. Also announced were the winners of the bonuses.
