Report from fight night (via Cole Henry):
Marlon Moraes vs. Aljamain Sterling (Bantamweight)
They exchange early, and Moraes lands a nice shot. Aljamain Sterling is down, but they stand back up. Sterling appears to shoot for a take down, but Moraes lands a huge knee that puts Sterling out cold and I mean out COLD! Damn that was crazy! Sterling shut down like a damn robot and keeled over. Just super impressive stuff here by Marlon Moraes.
