Although UFC 184 was a fight card that suffered significantly sue to injuries and fight cancelations, it was an event that still delivered in terms of violent finishes and entertaining showings. The crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California witnessed an array of stoppages that warranted post-fight bonuses.

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was the featured star of Saturday night's PPV event and lived up to those expectations with a rapid-fire finish of Cat Zingano to hand her opponent the first loss of her career. She did so with a 14-second armbar submission that she finished before most fight fans were aware of the result.

Elsewhere on the fight card, Tony Ferguson ended Gleison Tibau's recent win streak with a quick opening round submission victory that brought an end to the opening bout on the main card.

Jake Ellenberger snapped a three-fight losing streak on Saturday night to end a dry spell that dated back to 2013. He finished the fight with a north-south choke that had Koscheck foaming from the mouth before he decided to tap.

Tim Means also made quick work of his opponent Dhiego Lima and defeated him via opening round TKO after landing several flush shots that separated him from his senses. It was an impressive performance from ‘Dirtybird' and extends his win streak to three straight.
