Ramsey Nijem made his debut at 155 against Danny Downes, best known as the fighter who ruined the UFC's chances to promote in China after defeating Zhang at WEC 53. The fight was an absolute domiantion for Ramsey who was just bigger and stronger than the smaller and less athletic Downes.

The first round can best be described as a clinic with Nijem outstriking and out grappling Downes. For Downes, he was constantly playing defense to avoid the submission attempts.

The second round was more of the same with Nijem constantly getting the takedowns and working for chokes. The sole highlight for Downes was the crucifix at the start of the round but he was unable to finish the hold. After that he was just dominated.

The final round saw Nijem continue his assault on Downes. It was a complete domination and Downes was forced to play defense to survive to the decision. 

Nijem ended up winning perhaps the most one sided scorecards in recent history with a 30-25, 30-26, 30-27 cards.
