The UFC's first event in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 20 years culminated in a staggering upset in the main event between former lightweight champion Benson Henderson and Rafael dos Anjos. The Brazilian took command of the fight early on and finished the fight in the opening round of action.

While the majority of the first round was a feeling out process, it was clearly one that dos Anjos was in control of. He maintained a fast pace and tagged Henderson often before he hit a flush flying knee and a left hook to end the fight soon afterwards.

Official result: Rafael dos Anjos def. Benson Henderson via KO (Strikes, Round 1, 2:31)

While dos Anjos would not call out any specific opponent for his next fight, he did tell Jon Anik that he is prepared for whoever the UFC places in front of him.

"I do my job. I am prepared for everything."
