UFC actually opened the show with a video of Dana White claiming the actual heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou “doesn’t want to fight.” More embarrassing, scummy behavior from the most exploitative promoter not named Vince McMahon.

Welterweights: Vicente Luque def. Michael Chiesa via submission (D’Arce choke) at 3:25 of Round One. Incredible transition and slick submission by Luque, who secures the second most wins in welterweight history. After the fight, Luque called out welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Fantastic performance.
Bantamweight Co-Main Event: Jose Aldo def. Pedro Munhoz via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27). The former UFC featherweight champion has still got it!
Interim Heavyweight Championship Main Event (Five Rounds): Ciryl Gane def. hometown hero Derrick Lewis via third round TKO. Huge ovation of Lewis as expected, but it was absolutely completed domination for the now 10-0 Gane and NEW INTERIM HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. Post-fight, Daniel Cormier referred to Francis Ngannou as the undisputed champion. Guess Dana White didn’t get the memo…
