The UFC holds two events in one week while Bellator MMA crowned a new welterweight champion last Friday night.

On Wednesday, the finale of The Ultimate Fighter: Nations went down as Elias Theodorou and Chad Laprise won in their respective divisions. Patrick Cote completed the Canadian sweep when he defeated rival coach Kyle Noke in the co-main event. In the main event, it was all Tim Kennedy who was able to out-grapple Michael Bisping for a unanimous decision win.

On Friday, Bellator was given a new champion as Douglas Lima defeated Rick Hawn with leg kicks in the main event, becoming the new welterweight champion.

Saturday, Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne fight to see who gets the next shot at Cain Velasquez’s title. In the co-main event, two former title challengers looked for a big win to get back on track towards Ronda Rousey’s title.
