While the UFC's return to Macau, China was far from their most entertaining international fight card, it still featured several impressive stoppages on the card that made up for the other less-than-stellar fights that took place on Saturday morning.

This time around, the UFC decided to hand out four performance bonuses instead of using a Fight of the Night bonus.

Michael Bisping made an emphatic statement on Saturday in Macau when he finished Cung Le at 57 seconds into the fourth round of their main event. Arguably one of the best finishing performances from the Briton, Bisping dominated the majority of the encounter before swarming his Vietnamese opponent in the fourth round to close out the fight with a sequence of knees and punches.

Tyron Woodley picked up the biggest knockout victory of the day when he rolled past Dong Hyun Kim in 61 seconds to pick up his fourth win inside the UFC octagon. The contest started out with Kim's usual aggressive approach, and once he missed a spinning elbow attempt, Woodley swarmed and hit him with a perfect right hand behind the ear to drop the South Korean where he stood to earn his second performance bonus inside the octagon. His first came following his KO victory over Josh Koscheck at UFC 167.

Yuta Sasaki picked up an impressive finish over Canada's Roland Delorme to give himself a strong start to his UFC run. The fight lasted a total of 66 seconds and ended with and overwhelmed Delorme being submitted by rear-naked choke.

Alberto Mina came out aggressive in his preliminary bout against Shinsho Anzai and was eventually rewarded with a first-round TKO stoppage for his efforts. The contest ended with an uppercut that closed out the fight at the 4:17 mark.
