The first four fights on the UFC Fight Night 67 main card are in the books, and someone got kicked in the balls really hard.

The four three bouts of the UFC Fight Night 67 main card are in the books, and three of them were decent. One was absolutely terrible, but featured one of the hardest groin kicks in UFC history. And the fight continued after that. Here's how it all went down.

Alex Oliveira came in on short notice for the second time in as many months and got the job done. After eating a few rights from opponent K.J. Noons, he managed to get his opponent against the cage and eventually to the ground. Once he did, he quickly sunk a rear naked choke and got the tap. Very impressive work on the ground.

Francimar Barroso and Ryan Jimmo engaged in one of the most boring fights in years. Basically Barroso just held Jimmo against the fence for the majority of the fight, and did almost nothing with the position. The only notable thing that happened was Barroso landing the mother of all groin kicks on Jimmo, to the point that he may have been puking in a bucket. To his credit though, Jimmo did continue and the two men proceeded to bore everyone to sleep for another few minutes. Yawn.

Francimar Barroso defeated Ryan Jimmo by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

Norman Parke and Francisco Trinaldo engaged in a lightweight bout that was pretty tough to call, and that came down to the first round. Trinaldo spent the first half of the stanza landing a bunch of hard strikes, but was taken down and controlled for the second half. The second round was all Trinaldo, who stuffed takedowns and beat Parke up on the feet. The third was all Parke, who took Trinaldo down and controlled him on the mat. In the end, the judges awarded the Brazilian the win.

UFC debutant Darren Till took a little while to get going, but once he did, he showed off some excellent skills. The English fighter used a variety of clinch work and leg kicks to take the first round, but he brought much more ferocity in the second. After getting a takedown, Till opened up with three brutal elbows from guard and knocked Oliveira clean out.
