Stephen Thompson proved he can go 25 minutes with the best in the world Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 89, dominating former title contender Rory MacDonald in the main event.

Other winners included Steve Bosse, Jason Saggo, Krzysztof Joto, Elias Theodorou, Randa Markos and Ali Bagautinov.

Bosse and Sean O’Connell were named “Fight of the Night,” while Cerrone and Jotko each scored “Performance of the Night” honors.
