Check out results of the UFC Fight Night 100 preliminary card.

MMA: TUF Finale-Team Smith vs Team Ferreira Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday evening’s UFC Fight Night 100 preliminary card was full of finishes — literally. All six preliminary bouts were ended within 15 minutes, making for a fantastic, slow-paced undercard to kick off the organization’s return to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

In the main event of the televised prelims, TUF Brazil winner Cezar Ferreira pulled off a very impressive arm-triangle submission victory over Jack Hermansson. “Mutante” has now won three in a row.

Earlier on in the prelims, Johnny Eduardo returned in style, picking up a TKO win over veteran Manny Gamburyan, who retired after the bout, and Pedro Munhoz upset Justin Scoggins on UFC Fight Pass.

Check out the full UFC Fight Night 100 preliminary results — and video of some of the finishes — below.

Cezar Ferreira def. Jack Hermansson via Submission (Arm Triangle) at 2:11 of Round 2

In the final preliminary bout, Cezar Ferreira was the best he has looked in a long, long time — if not ever — and picked up one of his most impressive wins to date. He took on Jack Hermansson, and in the opening round, it was a standup affair that the Brazilian got the better of. He landed slightly more strikes than his opponent, who was never really able to put out much offense.

A minute into the second round, Ferreira landed a beautiful takedown, and eventually locked up a very deep arm-triangle submission. Hermanson tried to escape — and it looked like he was going to momentarily — but there was nothing he could do but tap, giving Ferreira his first finish win in three years.

Gadzhimurad Antigulov def. Marcos Rogerio de Lima via Submission (Guillotine) at 1:07 of Round 1

Talk about making a statement. Gadzhimurad Antigulov wasted no time in his UFC debut against Marcos Rogerio de Lima. Just seconds into the bout, the Russian newcomer scored a single-leg takedown and got into top position. The very strong de Lima tried to escape, but Antigulov was able to remain on top, also locking in a guillotine. The Brazilian swept, getting on top himself, but it wasn’t enough to escape — he was still stuck in the submission hold. Instead of addressing the choke attempt, however, de Lima simply attacked Antigulov’s body. Antigulov adjusted just enough to get into a better position, in which he would be able to finish the fight, and de Lima was forced to tap just over a minute into the opening round.

Johnny Eduardo def. Manny Gamburyan via TKO (Strikes) at :46 of Round 2

Johnny Eduardo rebounded successfully against Manny Gamburyan. He stepped inside the Octagon for the first time since December 2015, ending yet another long layoff.

Gamburyan made the first round close, as he was the one to land the bigger bombs — none that wobbled the Brazilian, though. But, on the other hand, Eduardo landed several devastating kicks and countered well.

Less than a minute into the second round, Gamburyan ran straight into a left jab from Eduardo, stunning “The Anvil” and knocking him down to the canvas. Eduardo followed up with a few ground-and-pound shots and that was all she wrote.

Gamburyan announced his retirement following the fight, which marked the veteran’s second consecutive loss.

Luis Henrique def. Christian Colombo via Submission (Guillotine) at 2:12 of Round 3

Luis Henrique’s win over Christian Colombo in the opening fight of the televised preliminary card defined a low-level heavyweight bout. Colombo’s couldn’t stop Henrique’s takedowns even if his life depended on it and spent most of the fight off his back on defense. The Brazilian was able to make it a very, very gritty affair from start to finish.

Henrique scored numerous takedowns throughout the first 10 minutes, but a takedown in the third round led to a submission victory. Henrique had Colombo on his back and it didn’t take long for him to sink in a guillotine choke for his second straight win.

Pedro Munhoz def. Justin Scoggins via Submission (Guillotine) at 1:55 of Round 2

Justin Scoggins looked fantastic in his UFC bantamweight debut for the first six and a half minutes, but Pedro Munhoz used his go-to finish, the guillotine choke, to score a come-from-behind victory.

Scoggins had a high volume of crisp striking in the opening round and landed at ease. Impressive movement stopped most of Munhoz’s attempted shots, as well, and Scoggins easily won the first round.

Scoggins started out well at the beginning of the second round, but Munhoz capitalized on a slip and sunk in a very tight guillotine, causing Scoggins to tap. Scoggins tried to roll out of the choke but wasn’t able to escape.

Darren Stewart def. Francimar Barroso via TKO (Strikes) at 1:34 of Round 1

It didn’t take Darren Stewart long to get the job done in his UFC debut against Francimar Barroso in the first fight of the night. Just over the minute mark of the first round, Stewart accidentally headbutted the veteran light heavyweight, causing Barroso to shriek in pain. The Brazilian fell to the mat, and Stewart finished him off with ground-and-pound. The bout was somewhat controversial, because the headbutt is what led to the finish.
