Plenty of fighters were left licking their wounds, including Michel Pereira, who let a sure-fire victory slip away after striking Diego Sanchez with an illegal knee, one that ultimately led to a disqualification loss (see it again here).

UFC Rio Rancho saw a top title contender fall short and two men lose by disqualification, so what’s next for those who were defeated? UFC Rio Rancho was supposed to be the night Corey Anderson showed the world he was good enough to fight division champion, Jon Jones.

Corey Anderson had a rough night in Rio Rancho, Texas against Jan Blachowicz, getting knocked out by the Polish light heavyweight three minutes into their main event fight at UFC on ESPN+ 25. Anderson may have hyped himself up a bit too much about his striking skills after that Johnny Walker win.
