UFC 199 results and video highlights: Ortega rallies to TKO Guida, Dariush wrecks Vick

Get all the results for the UFC 199: Rockhold vs. Bisping 2 Fox Sports 1 preliminary card bouts, including a feature featherweight matchup between Clay Guida and Brian Ortega.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

There wasn't a shortage of action on the UFC 199 Fox Sports 1 prelims. We had a couple of knockout wins, a thrilling finish to the Alex Caceres vs. Cole Miller contest, and an incredible comeback by Brian Ortega. Here's how the fights played out, complete with highlights of the finishes.

Brian Ortega def. Clay Guida via TKO (knee) at 4:40 of round 3 - Featherweights

Guida's striking looked as good as it's ever been, as Ortega suffered a flash knockdown and was largely outboxed. The fight stayed standing the duration of the first 5 minutes, with the BJJ specialist willing to duke it out on the feet with the longtime veteran. Round 2 was another prolonged kickboxing battle, with Guida slickly faking takedowns and landing power shots on the exit. Ortega closed strongly by increasing his volume and scoring with big uppercuts that backed Guida off. Clay's output also waned slightly but he still had his moments. Ortega finally got going in the 3rd round with his jab, but still likely needed a finish to win the fight. Ask and ye shall receive. Guida was the one getting tagged consistently and then Ortega unleashed a perfectly timed knee that sent Guida crashing to the canvas. Another remarkably 3rd round win for Brian Ortega, who becomes just the 2nd fighter to ever knock Clay Guida out. And what a way to do it.

Beneil Dariush def. James Vick via KO (punch) at 4:16 of round 1 - Lightweights

Note to self: Don't poke Dariush in the eyes. He gets mad. Vick twice poked Dariush in the eye inside the first couple of minutes, but didn't get a point deducted either time. Dariush decked Vick with a hard straight left and went for the kill straight away. Big ground-and-pound had Vick in trouble, but Vick got back to his feet and ate a knee for his troubles. Vick weathered the storm and defended Dariush's takedown. The Kings MMA product drilled Vick with another left that had him retreating and wobbled. One more massive left flattened Vick and ended the fight. First round KO for Dariush gets him back in the win column, while Vick suffers his first professional defeat.

Jessica Andrade def. Jessica Penne via TKO (punches) at 2:56 of round 2 - Strawweights

Andrade flat out mauled Penne in the 1st round. She looked spectacular in her strawweight debut, stalking Penne and walking her down and throwing powerful punches in bunches to both the body and the head. Penne couldn't respond well to the pressure whatsoever and just took a humongous beating. Her single strikes were no match of Andrade's big combinations, and Penne was knocked down at the end of the 1st but saved by the horn. Round 2 was a repeat of round 1, except Jason Herzog came in and stopped it while Penne was still standing but otherwise absorbing dozens of unanswered punches. Total beatdown of the highest order.

Alex Caceres def. Cole Miller via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) - Featherweights

Caceres looked excellent in round 1. He dropped Miller with a straight left inside the first 30 seconds, didn't get worked on the ground when Miller took him down, and when the fight was contested on the feet, "Bruce Leeroy" put in some precise, powerful striking that had Miller hurt multiple times. Caceres took Miller down twice en route to a dominant opening 5 minutes. It was more of the same in round 2, Miller was just totally lost in the stand-up as Caceres was clearly faster, more accurate, and more varied in his attack. Cole went for failed guard pulls, got tossed down by Caceres, and had no answers for Caceres' constant offense. The 3rd round was ridiculously dramatic, with Caceres slamming Miller to the ground like The Incredible Hulk. Later on in the bout, Alex had his back taken by Miller in a scramble. Miller had a super dangerous armbar that had Caceres in pain, but he got out of it. Cole's chance had come and gone, but after tagging Miller in the final minute of the fight, Caceres tried to go for Miller's back and wound up with Miller controlling him on the ground. A late rear-naked choke attempt wouldn't come through for the veteran. Great win for Caceres in a fight that was supposed to be B.J. Penn vs. Cole Miller.
