Taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California last night was a stacked pay-per-view card. Headlined by the bantamweight title rematch between TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt, the card had some seriously amazing fights…
During a night filled with mostly decisions, a few fights stood out above the rest. Although the other scraps weren’t uneventful, the paled in comparison to the main event TKO and also Alex Perez vs Jose Torres.
UFC 227 was all about those two title fights, and what an upset the co-main event was. Flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson with the longest title defense streak ever faced a man he’d already beaten recently in Henry Cejudo.
The Olympic medalist stunned Johnson, with both men earning fight of the night honors. In our opinion, though, the most enthralling moment of the evening was Alex Perez vs Jose Torres. Watch the video below, followed by the absolutely epic reaction from one fan:

Alex Perez vs Jose Torres Was Amazing
The entire fight was just a blast, but thanks to the UFC copyright hounds that’s the best video we have for now. Although, one particular fan in the crowd provided another amazing moment after the fight.
Following Alex Perez vs Jose Torres, this overly excited fan hit the roof and appeared to also be hitting the sniff:
JUST BLEED 2.0!!!
All in all, a successful night for the UFC after another big pay-per-view. For us, though, Perez vs Torres was the highlight. One belt changed hands, one stayed in the champ’s camp.
