ufc 192

Many wondered if the UFC 192 main event would be one-sided, either in favor of the champion or the challenger.

That was not the case Saturday night in Houston, as Daniel Cormier scored a split decision victory over Alexander Gustafsson in defense of his light heavyweight title.

Cormier earned the bout on two scorecards, 48-47 and 49-46, while Gustafsson claimed the other, 48-47.

For “DC,” it marked his first title defense after winning the vacant belt from Anthony Johnson earlier this year. Officials stripped Jon Jones of the title after his outside-the-Octagon run-in with the law.

In the co-main event, Ryan Bader scored his fifth consecutive victory and positioned himself as a top contender with a decision victory over former UFC champion Rashad Evans.

Evans was making his return after a lengthy layoff due to knee surgery, but was unable to defeat the former Ultimate Fighter winner.

Ruslan Magomedov, Joseph Benavidez and Julianna Pena all completed the main card with decisions, as all five bouts went the distance.

A previously scheduled welterweight title-eliminator featuring Johny Hendricks and Tyron Woodley was scrapped after Hendricks was forced to the hospital with kidney stones and intestinal blockage a day before weigh-ins.

Yair Rodriguez started a string of six straight decisions when he bested Dan Hooker in the prelim feature bout, while Albert Tumenov and Adriano Martins claimed “Performance of the Night” finishes.

Rose Namajunas, Sage Northcutt, Sergio Pettis and Derrick Lewis all earned wins inside the Toyota Center. The attendance was announced at 14,622.

Along with Tumenov and Martins claiming bonuses, Cormier and Gustafsson were awarded the “Fight of the Night.” All four picked up $50,000 for their efforts.

nik lentz

Former UFC champion BJ Penn is currently retired.

However, the proud Hawaiian would end that retirement if famed trainer Mike Dolce brought one of his pupils inside the Octagon to face him.

Appearing on Wednesday night’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” Penn stated that he would like to fight Lentz at featherweight. The 36-year-old retired after a third straight loss to Frankie Edgar in 2014.

“I’m sick and tired of hearing about Mike Dolce,” Penn said. “I’ll put a challenge out right now: You go get Nik Lentz, your boy, bring him down to 145 and I’ll run right through him in one round and then I’ll find you in the back and smash you.

“If Dolce says I don’t train, let’s do this. I would come out for this. Some things were said, got heated. I worked with him for 20 days and paid him $1,000 a day. I’m sick of hearing that.”

Ahead of making his return to the Octagon and facing Edgar, Penn enlisted the help of Dolce to get his weight down. After, the two sides engaged in verbal warfare against one another.

Instead of training, Penn has spent time doing the “taro farms. The Hawaiians love the poi; I love the poi” he said.

As for that possible Lentz contest, Penn would like for it to be back at featherweight to prove a point.

“At 145. Let’s do this,” he said. “That was my last fight. I had a bad showing. I’m ready for something like this. I haven’t been in a gym for two years. I’ll come back for the grudge match, then we’ll see.”

It’s pay-per-view time once again for the Octagon, as UFC 192 takes place this Saturday night.

Set for the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, Daniel Cormier will make his first light heavyweight title defense against former contender Alexander Gustafsson.

Cormier won the vacant belt with a victory over Anthony Johnson earlier this year after UFC officials stripped Jon Jones of the title. Gustafsson, who challenged Jones and went the full 25 minutes, is coming off a loss to “Rumble.”

Along with the title fight, welterweight contenders Tyron Woodley and Johny Hendricks square off, along with a key 205-pound battle that could determine the next title challenger when Rashad Evans meets Ryan Bader.

Heavyweights Shawn Jordan and Ruslan Magomedov, along with female bantamweights Jessica Eye and Julianna Pena, round out the main card.

Flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov highlight the FOX Sports 1 prelims, while three bouts start the night on UFC Fight Pass.
