Things got heated in “Hotlanta” Saturday night at UFC 201 and we have a complete recap for you.

For the seventh time this year, UFC gold changed hands, as Tyron Woodley knocked out Robbie Lawler in the first round of their welterweight title fight Saturday night.

Woodley caught “Ruthless” clean with a right hand on the button, sending him to just his second career knockout defeat. The former University of Missouri wrestling standout became the ninth UFC welterweight champion and earned the fastest finish in division history.

Karolina Kowalkiewicz said she was ready to take the next step, and the unbeaten strawweight proved it in the co-main event vs. Rose Namajunas. Kowalkiewicz prevailed in a split decision, improving to 10-0 and likely positioning herself with a fight against fellow countrywomen Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Jake Ellenberger asked UFC president Dana White for one more chance and he took advantage, knocking down Matt Brown twice before finishing him off inside of the first round. Entering the bout 1-5 in his last six, Ellenberger landed a liver kick and followed up to score his 21st career finish.

Erik Perez and Francisco Rivera put on a 15-minute show for the fans, with Perez earning the decision. After standing and trading for 10 minutes, the two decided to go full-on to start the third. “Goyito” gained the advantage and smothered Rivera for the win.

After the UFC removed Justin Scoggins-Ian McCall, flyweights Fredy Serrano and Ryan Benoit were moved up to kickoff the pay-per-view main card. Despite Serrano, a former Olympic wrestler, controlling the side of the things, Benoit earned the decision thanks to his striking.

Nikita Krylov made his early claim for a bonus, delivering a bone-crunching head-kick that left Ed Herman out cold on the canvas. After nearly finishing the veteran in the first, Krylov connected early in the second with the picture-perfect strike.

Jorge Masvidal picked up his 30th career win, scoring a decision over Ross Pearson. This was the second fight this month for Pearson, as he also lost via decision to Will Brooks three weeks ago.

Sometimes, the heavyweight division gives us tough-to-watch fights. Anthony Hamilton wasn’t having any of that, as he knocked out Damian Grabowski in just 14 seconds to get back on track. That gives Hamilton the second-quickest KO in the division.

Wilson Reis set a new UFC flyweight record, scoring a submission win over Hector Sandoval in under two minutes. After feeling the power of Sandoval, Reis scored several takedowns before locking in a rear-naked choke for the finish.

Damien Brown showed off his striking skills, finishing Cesar Arzamendia in style with a first round TKO. Michael Graves and Bojan Velickovic fought to a majority draw, as Graves claimed one score 30-27, but the other two went 28-28.

Woodley and Ellenberger each earned “Performance of the Night” bonuses, while Namajunas and Kowalkiewicz were named “Fight of the Night.” The attendance was announced at 10,240 with a live gate of $1.07 million.

the ultimate fighter 24

Sixteen regional champions from around the world will compete for a shot at UFC flyweight titleholder Demetrious Johnson on The Ultimate Fighter 24.

The promotion announced recently that cast for the season, which debuts in August. Henry Cejudo and Joseph Benavidez serve as coaches.

Below is the complete press release from the UFC:

Champions from around the world will descend upon Las Vegas for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter. This season, 16 seeded competitors, all champions in their current promotion, will be coached by two former flyweight title challengers, top-ranked Joseph Benavidez and No. 2 Henry Cejudo.

Season 24 of the long-running UFC reality show debuts Wednesday, August 31 at 10 p.m. ET on FS1. The series is the network’s highest-rated and most-watched original program since inception in August 2013. Last season’s finale, headlined by a strawweight world title bout between coaches Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Claudia Gadelha in, was the most-watched on FS1 since the first fall season in 2013.

Currently riding a five-fight winning streak, Benavidez (24-4, fighting out of Las Cruces, N.M.) has met current 125-pound kingpin Demetrious Johnson twice and will utilize the experience gained in those two encounters to help guide his squad of eight fighters from around the world. In addition to his matchups with “Mighty Mouse,” Benavidez has blown through the competition in the 125-pound division and racked up victories over the best flyweights in the world, including Zach Makovsky, Ian McCall and Jussier Formiga.

Coaching opposite Benavidez this season is Olympic gold medalist, Cejudo (10-1, fighting out of Phoenix, Ariz.), whose only professional loss has come at the hands of Johnson. Cejudo became the youngest American to earn gold in wrestling at the 2008 games in Beijing. After representing his country on the world’s stage, he turned his attention to MMA, where he holds victories over some of the sport’s elite, including former title challenger Chris Cariaso.

The show will feature 12 episodes airing Wednesdays on FS1. Each episode’s winner will advance in the single-elimination tournament. In a new twist from previous seasons, the two finalists will meet in the last fight in the house to determine who will receive a shot at the UFC flyweight world title at the finale in December.
